Truly Broken

Beat me, bleed me

Tie to me to the rhythm of your hands

And the electric hum of your heart

The synthetic bonds are breaking

And our mortal wounds are crimson signs

We’ve abused our present

And mortgaged our past

On a future of stepping over each other

Just to say we know the path

The stars mouths knit shut

City lights snitch on our shadow

Broken mirages of longing

We are truly just broken

Every time I dream of you, the wound widens

Tears only sting, anger ups the ante

My breakthrough came in cutting off the limb

That could not see itself away from you

I am disfigured but sane

Crumbling yet not demolished

Some of me is still pure

But why couldn’t you see that too?

One thought on “Truly Broken

I'm interested in hearing what you have to say
