I remember back when life was simple
When all I had to do was live.
And I feel the gale
That swept my world away,
Peeling back the waxy foreskin
In favor of the ugly putrefied underbelly.
I remember the pools of crimson
That took you from me.
And your spidery dead veins
Collapsing beneath my fingertips.
I remember how it felt to be alone
To know you were out of my reach.
Just below that surface of life
I wouldn’t dare to break.
And the dripping scores of misery
Piled on my weak and emaciated shoulders.
