Hold my eyelids open and secure my hanging head, digging shards of bone from both our feet. Removing teeth to free what’s left of sentences unsaid, ensuring my last breath echoes relief. We ignore the sound of two dissolving souls as our home disintegrates into a grave. Rebuilt above burnt earth to be sure nothing else can grow. You left as I was dreaming, but when I opened my eyes you swore you were still here. Preserving footprints in the colour of our blood and as our veins ran dry you swore you were still here. Suffocate me in my sleep. The weight of my belief will bury me. I felt your presence fleeing long before you took your leave. You swore you were still here. Leaving small incisions in the hands that used to hold me, and as our veins ran dry you swore you were still here.
