Red rimmed stinging drop
drip into a faded pillowcase.
Coughing up the blood let it
seep into the fabric I don't care.
I'm never going to be good enough for you.
I'm sorry I'm not perfect.
Sorry that you refuse to see my flaws
Maybe I need to be
you'll never understand.
Maybe every dream wish hope
I caught has just slipped through
the cracks between the dusty floorboards.
I'll never find, never seek them again.
Whisper hush now in my mind
you don't hear my murmured frustration.
…Why do you do this to me?…
Raised voice becomes voices,
screams, harsh words.
Your voice is fading.
…I can't hear you…
I'm sinking fast in this coal black
quicksand of misunderstanding.
I reach for your hand.
… I know you won't be there…
Warm fingers. A hallucination?
