Burning From the Inside Out
Rigidify my insides.
Accelerate my heartbeat.
Burn my skin pink.
That Time When You Do Something Really Dumb And Literally Everyone’s Watching
Looking for a hole to crawl into and die.
I want to disappear.
The lies you have strung,
I wear like a cardigan.
At Least They Couldn’t See My Face
Falling over backward
in office chair
with dress above head.
Standing on a welfare line
Snap benefits denied, hungry.
Yeah, I’m listening.
Face muscles move on whilst mind replays the moment. Repeatedly.
Tomorrow it will be alright but right now it's not.
Walking through school hallways
Every step is an insult, a knife in my gut.
