i dont enjoy this death

this silent, slow surrender into nothingness

its not what i hoped for, if im being honest

the last time i died was much faster

a sudden slip from one world into the next

 

and as i awoke in my new reality i

i swore i could still feel that knife in my chest

and the final beat of my dying heart

 

i think im still bleeding

and maybe thats where this all began

im an open wound forever pumping blood

from the hurts of a past life ive since forgotten

 

the edges are still raw, even if you cant see them

and the life has been fading fading from my eyes since day one

i think i still have a long time left in me

but ill always be missing something

the part of my soul that has been leaking out of me

 

i didnt always bruise so easily

but i suppose its the only way ill feel anything these days
