Beklemmung | poetry

to exit the world in a hurry

means that the world has something to do with it

I don’t deserve to live

became a conviction that wouldn’t leave

I shouldn’t exist

was a pain unspoken

I remember your eyes

ever-ready to get rid of yourself

now that I know

now that your eyes are a memory

but you are still looking back at me

you have always been killed
