A/N: Written on December 9, 2010.


I can't escape your voice
It bursts out of my throat in a scream
A million tiny shards of glass
Explode in my lungs
Gasp for breath
Hands to my throat
These words won't pass my lips
They strangle my insides
Inhale
Exhale
Inhale
Exhale
A ticking time bomb in my chest
Raise me up on your pedestal
"It was a heart attack," they say
"What a shame."
"She was so young, so innocent."
Blood pumping, boiling, swirling
Air cuts like a knife when I breathe
Inhale
Exhale
Inhale
Exhale
Am I a particle or a wave?
Get out of my head
Close the door on my thoughts
Let it hit you on your way out
It's not about you
