giving my body away

dig back the layers
each layer of pink skin
till it turns to blue veins
the richness of blood
flooding my nostrils
I stumble
and collapse to the floor
can you feel death knocking?
I am ready to escape
weakness becomes my strength
I’m crawling towards the balcony
highway smog blinds my eyes
this vacation was supposed to help
now
I’ve been robbed and secluded
left with nothing but
flaps of flesh
just begging to be cut off
can you feel the roar of vehicles
on crowded interstate
which will be the one
to finally end
this fucking mess
you hated to claim?
