i’m black eyes and bruised bones.
open wounds that won’t close.
more drooling than dreaming.
in a cold cough barely breathing.
i’m flash floods and mudslides.
in dry heat that never dies.
more than ordinary stale as sh-t.
i’m the power of worry and panic attack.
a shot in the dark. the beauty in black.
i’m the stomach of a new found love.
a lonely man’s grocery store crush.
i’m the heart and the blood in failing hard.
you can’t destroy me.
i’m invincible. unbreakable.
