I want to live through a tragedy

Have a reason to spill my guts.

Slit my wrists 

above a page,

and let my insides tell a story 

my fingers haven't heard.


I've known sadness,

but it's been too long. 

The sorrow has bled from my bones

dripped from my lips

my hands 

in large unceasing waves. 

They consume my being 

swallow my soul,


But the ugly longing has been scooped from my marrow 

I am left content

content, and uninspired 

I miss the sadness

the art it once produced.
