she told her body to be quiet

because yours wouldn’t stop screaming

*

you opened her body

to make space for yourself

*

you knew you’d apologise

after you set her world on fire

*

the way you said her name

revealed everything

*

apologies ready to go

apologies without a conscience

without a memory

up your sleeve

*

reality is a multi-faceted piece of work

apply it where you want

what makes reality real?

*

yours

or

mine?

*

lies always carried your voice

*

she’d numb her body

every time you sought her out

*

you kissed her with that mouth

*

violence survived the bodies on the deathbed

*

last words, next chapter, blowbirth

*

she served the flaws of the dead still

with her body

within her body

still

entertaining

force-fed

*

he turned a blind eye

to her cold shoulder

*

and she made herself do it

before he’d make her do it
