I want to take your knife

And run it across my skin

To feel close to you,

As my flesh opens and coils

Creating a chasm stretching to my soul.

I want to watch my blood

Scream to the surface, gasping

To turn from indigo to crimson,

And snake its way from my veins,

To feel close to you.

I want to lay my dreams at your feet

Covered with my choking heart

Wincing with each step,

To feel close to you.
