and I don't know how you will destroy me


will it be with something I’ve known


like it was sitting

on that shelf

for years

pretending to not have a blade

before it came down upon me


you sat next to me

for so long

and then I was

holding you


sometimes I think

it could be lies because

I have

never liked the truth

and being deceived into

my own ending would

just be too fitting


or maybe

it will be your eyes

because if you stare at something

too long

you’re bound to turn to stone


you probably think

I stare too long

I think I need a lifetime


if I keep thinking about

how I will end

maybe the universe will not

take the trouble to

do it
