Again and Again


There are horrors here

mutilations of mutiny

in every word you sow

There are horrors, whiled realizations

that haunt my soul

A briar that adheres through

the gaping, seeping stitches that beg,

Will you ever let go?

And it is this discovery

that I am


words that never lived,

a fire that never burned,

a past that never happened.

I am nothing that really


true to it’s word,

and I will be nothing

again and again.

I will be not a return

nor ascending

only horror

A horror you never let go
