My words cracked in mid air
Mid sentence thoughts ruined
Smeared at the side of my mouth
Letters an illegible tattoo across my cheek

I'm watching you
Tongue reaching down my lip
Exploring my damaged vocabulary
Trying to juxtapose each character
Make my mouth a temple without a priest

But you close away my cliché
Placing indescribable things inside my lips
Replacing what I didn't know was dead
With things I had no idea could be alive

Slide your teeth through my shell
Opening me from the inside out
Fingers spread apart inside my chest
Feeling at the depths of mysteries we've yet to grasp

Pull me apart
I want to be destroyed
