Crashing smashing

Claws slashing

Teeth gnashing

Thrashing my heart,

The depth of my soul

Into the wall.

The bell tolls once and I’m


A hypnotic ding that stings

With such intensity that I balloon

Into monstrosity,

Furiously holding the barbed wire

That pulls back my gums

Of cold daggers. 

Ferociously, I pierce 

The gurgling growth

To release the bile of gross

Hate-vomit that will split

Your bones apart with my soul. 

Die! I cry as I stab and bludgeon

My essence of grudging sanity

Smudged with past abuse. 

I’ll assassinate myself before allowing myself

To hurt you.
