Smother


Smother 2

You big
weigh me down
push
crush
drown all sound
you sneer
put me down
want
take
push me round
change your fancy
change your mind
press
your weight on me
never no
your weight in me
never listen
never hear
You throw away my things.
You throw away my heart.
You throw away my me.
tears gone
hard face
me
dumb
words strangled
black inside
all cold
cannot breathe
me
gone

(2003)

    1. I didn’t even write affair. Odd you assumed I meant that. A relationship it describes in any case, who or what ever I and you may be.
