tear stained pillows
drip black and blue
dull razor blades
scrape and tear
infuriating the skin.
your own chemical imbalance
waging a war against today and tomorrow
up and down
the writhing chest attempts
and rises
combating sanity
where it merely touches defeat
Exhale a thousand scars
cut open wide
escaping through each pore
creating instability of a fragile entity
tug of war
a Jekyl versus its Hyde
highlighted in their own showcase
now playing
in a mind near you.
