love me like blood on your tongue

and at the end tell me i was good

By Trinity HPublished 2 months ago 1 min read

choke on my rotting worries-

Have you eaten?

Are you okay?

I miss you.

and feel tears while you gag on them.

Are you okay?

It’s been a while.

How can I make it better?

the collapse of your lungs is drowned out by my voice:

Do you still love me?

Would you be happier with me gone?

Are you okay?

grip my wrists as they wrap around your throat

look at me in the eyes

see how i’m looking away

spotty vision, bloody teeth, blue face-

Are you okay?

Are you okay?

Are you okay?
