Your laugh strikes me as a blow to the chest
Your stance shrivels as a taunt
Snickering behind icy warm eyes
You suffocate
I watch until my eyes
Bleed pain from the consistence
Of undying sadness
You chase him
You follow him
Even whispers flutter from each of their lips
My legs beaten
Mouth covered in grey tape
Strapped to the chair of
He’s comforted and I’m clanking my teeth
Trying to breathe warmth on my hands
I want to scream
But lose my words in my underpass
One way mirror directed towards you
You don’t connect but pass by without a wince in your eye
Pitter patter
All swirls around me as I feel you walk away
