There is no way in hell that
You can hide from me forever.
You grasp
My heart, dig your tiny
Fingernails into it, puncture
My lungs with your feet
While trying to yank your
Way
Up
Into
My head.
Thoughts confuse my own.
I cough
Up
Saliva,
Try to gag, to spit you out.

This is a really good poem!! I like the imagery and metaphor...it's very powerful.
