i will not burden
a soul so beautiful
that my hummingbird heart
with its stammers and stutters
silences its staccato beats.

i am struck
by the sad
strange
and silent
i am struck
by myself
more and more
as i let my thoughts
sink me further.

i don't know how
to open my mouth
when my lips
stick together in my sleep.
i forget how to breathe
when i'm out at night
a few drinks under my belly
and men who are not you
rub their hands
up and down my body
in their minds.

what hurts
is my fingers in my throat
because i sinned,
what hurts
is the way my body has changed
but my mind hasn't,
what hurts
is not knowing what
i'm doing to myself
is doing to you.
i'm sorry
