Straight… To Where we Weren’t

We could have drank it straight;
chased it with whiskey;
and seen the floor from a new perspective.
but now your scent lingers,
and your voice whispers,
My heart was ripped long ago
you now only have my soul
to rip from my body.
Now you assume
I’m here to maintain sanity.
I will make you cry
The way I cried for you
I will bleed your blood
The way I bled for you
I will breathe your breath
The way you kept me breathing.
I have been held up in this place
For far too long
Let me out
To the air-filled world.
I’m leaving
For the gum in my hair
Is much better company
Than the whispers I hear.
