Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Fold by fold,

Layer by layer;

In my soul,

Under my skin.



What lays in my mind,

Remains unknown;

Ready to scream,

Prepared to run—



From another situation,

Dragging me in.

Unarmed,

For just a bit—



Already,

My heart has been slit;

Pushing deeper,

Blood trickles down.



Ending the fight,

As my body gives in;

Throw me over,

Spit me out.



I stand on the edge;

Tempting you, I see.

Shove a little harder,

And set me free.



I’m about ready to give in,

Ready to die.

Give me a reason,

And I will vanish—



Out of sight,

Out of mind.
