(don’t) Live


What from? I would

Ask my dread

But instead it sent

To every nerve, every cell,

Blood like ice

Run from what?


until your lungs can carry air no longer

That was then,

be still

Now it tells,

very still

But why?

rest your back upon earth

Until when?

let her claim you again

But how?

let her vegetate and grow her

life upon you, crush

you with fear, and the weight of your sins

I see,

be still

be earth

I see,

until your lungs carry air no longer
