Outstretched hand
Deeper in the river
Sinking through teeth
To a pale tongued whisper

Impressed as a failure
Make the journey home
Never let it rest
Walk the feet off of bones

Tie a noose
With my frayed rope soul
If you can't unravel the knots
Cut them out

A reversal
To become the ground
Lost in a reverie
Replaying all the memories

Kneeling down
Repetitions of final sounds
Half a life, heartened by hate
Crawling up crags that grew faster than me

How did I get so close
Just to let it take me down
Drowning insecurity

Bang my head twice
For each mistake
It makes no difference what I have done

Ghost behind
The amber eyes
Prowling queen
Crack bones in your jaws

Savor the ego dripping
Absorb guilt in your veins
Remold me
Into a face I've never been
