I see you

Where she keeps you

Behind eyes of glass

I see you writhe and shake her branches

The mask

begins to crack

I see you

Where she stuffs you

Down down to a whisper

In the corners of her flesh and bones

where the wounds

have kissed her

I see you 

Where she holds you

In the corners of her mouth

That quiv'ring promise of a smile

swallowed by

self- doubt

I see you 

Where she knows you

A hunger furrowed upon her brow

To know more than knowing and for that more

To prove itself


I see you 

Where she hates you

Waging war against your love

For hate is free and the risk is high

To accept that

She's enough
