there is an itch
inside my body
that if i were to scratch
would burst the blister that ruins me
if i had a day
or an evening
during which i could scratch
i could bleed my undoing
crimson color shining

i could drift
from this world to the next
and if i were to sleep
i wouldn't wake in this wilderness
the reddening tile
the scenery suggests
an environment of comfort
where my slowing heart could rest
where i wouldn't exist
