i am walking contradiction


though my eyes have convinced me to lie.
lie to myself that all else doesn't matter.
like a bird who has been clipped of it's wings
i can no longer fly, i am to be flightless.
bound to the earths surface without air.
tears whisper down my cheeks in the piercing night.
why is it i let you affect me so?
i keep pushing to block all feeling
and then like a razor to the skin,
you bite me in the deepest part of my being.
teeth seep deeper and deeper,
causing my voice to screech
somewhere deep within the swell of my throat.
take my breath, take the beat of my heart
for i no longer want to bear the scars
that prove your pressence existed.
i will deny any residue you may have left
on my surface.
i will forget. you are forgotten
