AwayThis sticky uncomfortable feeling
pulsing in my veins when I see your face
your words, when I hear your voice
What do I do when all I see are walls of corkwood
porous and weak and brittle and
What can I say when you try to tell me

encompassing my mind and swallowing it whole like
a demon sent to taint my heart or
a zephyr sent to blow the hair into my eyes.
I live by pen and ink
and my heart isn't big enough or strong enough

of broken promises and shattered glass
that tightens around her throat with every day that passes
She nails a smile to her face
and doesn't let herself think the word dying
