I May Destroy You
I may hurt you
It slips into my mind when you look into my eyes
As you start creating scenes that already lack structure
And I do.
With words that shoot out of my mouth and latch onto skin
Easily burrowing and clinging to bone
Migrating into your mind whenever you look away
Kicking thoughts and leaving you restless; a rancid replay
Only to retreat back to their osseous house when you look back at me
For wherever your eyes may lie, the pain I engender always has a place to lie
I may punish you
It doesn't slip out of my mouth
Its certainty solidified by my silence, the effortless disregard
And I always do.
Without words, skin stays safe
But you don't know what to do when I don't talk to you
And unease digs its nails into your shoulders, no punctures
You analyse every action. You watch every word. You memorise every motion
For you know even the slightest aberration will prolong your penalty
And it is easy to leave you in such a state, so lost you forget what you had to state
I may destroy you
It spills out of my eyes, and this time
I think you actually see they tell no lies
And I almost do.
Swimming out of your face, you go back to fortifying fanciful frames
I see the cracks on your frame, the shell I made you
Hollowed human; I have taken, and given nothing of similar weight
Leaving you a being burden-bound, if I stay, you will certainly shatter with that weight.
I can't fix you, what good can come from the one that fractured?
I may fix myself. I look into my eyes...at least I know they can tell lies
