black

knee deep in your fire

and choking on ashes.

my words are spilling out -

i am spitting out grey smoke.

insides charred

from the pain you inflict,

black.

poisoned muzzle,

clenching jaw

my words are begging

for ears to hear them.

listen

for the scream

of the girl who just needs out

of this hell.

she is just dangling

a thread from an unwanted

overused rag,

see the flames

burning in her eyes,

destruction,

disaster,

black.

Me
