I am a safe with a welcome sign
that flashes neon every time
it catches sight of ski masks.
It’s infuriating. It’s depreciating…
and yet it flashes its Morse code,
emphasis in shivers
and the spasms of my throat,
like a void that swallows
and swallows
and swallows.

Closed.
Lights flicker behind my eyes.
You will never see me
as advertised, silly boy
of cloud-spun days.
You will never own me
completely;

Open.

Listening to Black Sun by the gods that are Death Cab For Cutie, and wondering that if I write enough sucky stuff - dredge up enough from folders - if fingers will stop shaking, and if eventually there comes a point where hospitals become as objective and distant as law and gods.

My response to this is that rape sucks. That's my interpretation and that's all I really have to say about that.

Your writing doesn't suck.
