Straight for the jugular

Your words penetrated like a machete on flames

A clean cut, surgical precision

You made your decision

Cut me through the thick of my shins

I fell to the floor, smashed through the door

My heart was open

Everything fell through

My work, my dreams, my life

You took over….

 


 

.and everything was gone.

 


 

The “pain” didn’t even hurt

I was numb to the core

 


 

Just….


 


 


 

..Broken.
