Hurt

My hands feel so rough. †
Fingernail beds. Landfills of filth.   †
My soles dripping hot tar, † †
So easy, they fall-off-the-bone. † †
Hornets congeal in the cocoons, † †
Where butterflies used to be. † †
†† †
The stench alone, poisons ten thousand trees. † †
† †  
No, I donít want to be the one to get hurt. † †
† †  
The Earth could be fuming, † †
With the daring veracity of its own mantle, † †
Cracked up like a rotten child, † †
Sizzling its flimsy chicken skin † †
To blacker than burnt, † †
But sworn from soul to surface, †  
Iíll never choose to face such † †
Calm, † †
Cordial, † †
Cocoa brown eyes. † †
† †  
Rejecting me. † †
† †  
--I love you. † †
† †  
No, † †
I donít want to be the one to get hurt. † †
† †  
Moving on is like pushing saltwater into an endless sea. † †
† †  
I keep thinking that † †
ďEveryone needs water to survive,Ē † †
So I can take the final swig, † †
To end it all. †  
But, † †
† †  
How the fucking hell am I supposed to be fucking sane about you? † †
When around me, you speak, so fluently. † †
† †  
No. † †
I donít want to be the one to get hurt. † †
† †  
I flail my arm across the nightstand. † †
The alarm flicks off. † †
† †  
What better time to say that, † †
This is all just a dream, after all.
