Stutter

Tue, 05/12/2015 - 23:31 -- Kayden
and rain stutters
over greasy pavement
slicked with oil
and I stutter
over words like
cracks in the soaked
sidewalk.
and your car stutters 
over starting 
I hope it won't.
and I stutter
over listless plees
don't go.
And I stutter 
over tears as
the engine catches
and the wheels stutter 
over damp ground
you leave me.
and my breath stutters
around blood 
in my mouth when 
I inhale,
exhale,
stutter,
exhale,
I leave you. 
This poem is about: 
Me
