Smothered

by Amanda L Marron

Dragging in the innocent
Opening new scars
I feel your blade slide over my skin
Pressing down too far
A river of red
Comes from this new wound
Staining my raw lips
I try to speak
But there is no sound
Silenced by your fear
Of what happens on earth’s ground

I feel so smothered
Pressing our fingers together
As blood brothers
Like there’s no other
Just get away
Fly away today

I can see your insecurities
When I look into your eyes
You think yourself so vital
But all you share is lies
Your words are smeared with hate
Your downfall made by fate
I am the doom of you
Cause what I speak is true

I feel so smothered
Pressing our fingers together
As blood brothers
Like there’s no other
Just get away
Just fly away today

I feel so smothered
You need some other
To place all your lies in
It’s a regression of sin

Forced unity. The "other" forces bondage, but in so doing reveals weaknesses. The master, in enforcing slavery, becomes the slave. Great write, love. |m|
