a poem about feeling faulted

placebo

a battleground;

my sanity and my drive to succeed

my sanity and my drive to succeed at each others' throats

in a battle for fruitless supremacy

for life without either

for life without either would send me spiralling into despair,

blind and callous like the betrayal of a loved one.

my body a hive of activity

as the bullets ricochet

as the bullets ricochet between skin an skull and rubber skin again:

a severed artery

a severed artery a ruptured lung

a severed artery a ruptured lung and twenty shades of black and blue

littering a mannequin

littering a mannequin with painted on features

littering a mannequin with painted on features and a single tear rolling down its cheek.

the violence is mindless

the violence is mindless yet silent,

still and below surface level

still and below surface level where everything feels like a performance

lights,

lights, camera,

lights, camera, blood from every orifice

as swallowing down the torment

becomes too much for a rag-doll body

so feeble,

so feeble, yet so uncontrollably aggressive

as limbs contort

and eyes roll back into sockets,

and eyes roll back into sockets, then out entirely

catching the light like marbles as they spin -

not that you or i could see -

for i am now blind

and this delusion is not in your mind.

fin.
