Black on black
Something automatic
Something sight unseen
I have succumbed to this before
Thru malignancy, with sympathy
With shame when words collide
Stuck on the downside…
Every time i think it’s over
[I am nameless & i am dying]
[I am blameless yet i am dying]

I could cut myself to prove that the wire is real


A shallow distance, love in remission now
While everything’s dead inside
At least the sun shines down again
In horror he fell, this well etched mask of tragedy belies
The light of a funeral for a friend…
I ripped the wound by falling over…

[I am nameless & i am dying]
[I am blameless yet i am dying]
[In suffrage now i cannot see]
[I'm not half as whole as i used to be]

I will cut myself to prove that the wire is real
I have cut myself to prove that the wire is real
I have cut myself, & they have cut me…
