Easier to erase when you can't see

when you can't see the damage you're doing

easier to lie when you're unaware

you're unaware of the tears you're creating.

or are You?

are You unaware?

It's so unfair -

what You can do to me.

And I don't think I can help it

without dying.

youaremylife. Without this,

how do I exist?

you make me real

breathing life into me when I do not care to inhale

cannot get a grasp on the world enough to use my lungs for anything but smokes and screams.

you -tear- me apart

without being present

because you're always in my mind

and yet I fear the day you leave -

without your breath I am a mere cold lump of clay.

flesh,

and blood,

and bone,

solid,

yet easy to erase ...

You're not here. so it is easier

to erase when you can't see the damage you're doing.

Right?
