It is everything that I am

Attempting to fill the void inside

You tell me

You can fill my heart up

But tarnished sutures

And good intentions

Can only fill so much

Your split lip

Half hearted "I love you's"

Spill over my hands

I feverishly claw at every drop

Only to have them pass between my fingers

Your promises flicker violently in your eyes

I falter at the shadows dancing around them

Labored Breaths

Caught between bloodied lips

I clutch at the wound in my chest

But your hands are quick to find

My heart on my sleeve

You try to wash the imprints off my heart

But your "I love you's"

Rot weak with your intentions

Cannot make it through my collapsed veins

They only

Harden

Clump

And seal
