The Most Dangerous Thing 
another day passes 
like the fog against my glasses 
colors smeared across my sight 
a weary sun weeps molasses 
descending into stifling night. 
i try so hard to stay afloat 
but hardened fingers scrape my throat 
clawing at my eyes and lips 
those dirt encrusted fingertips 
block my vision, steal my air 
and you’re the one who’s standing there. 
drowning creatures gasp for life 
grasping others in their strife 
i don’t want to drag you under 
the world is full of love and wonder 
but i am pinned by my own knife 
and thus we both are torn asunder.
