Choked on Betrayal

Deidre Moline 1978 (Tulare Ca)



As the needle pierces through my flesh, I am one plunge closer to my death, as the fog rolls in and sadness subsides, my chest moves like waves in the tide, I float alone in time and space, for that hint of death that I can taste, seeking respite outside my mind, my love for you keeps me blind, your words so silent yet spoke so clear, finally at peace screaming in my ear, you took my love and threw us away, so that I can suffer every day, your wicked thoughts no longer fake, your cries for help, how many will it take, new reality shifting, no more gifting, shut the door or climb that tree, I am left behind by suicide your love swallows me.
