Ruthless I am

I strained my jaws again last night.
Talking to the walls; befriending them.
I asked and responded for both of us.
Spewed planned phlegm.

We’ve drifted apart; yes I see.
I have to protect, you from me.
I’m not dangerous, but I dwell in yesterday.
And might end up making you stay.

Walk away beautiful goddess.
End the trance.
My story will remain,
a deathly dance.

Weep, as I do.
Ruthless I seem.
Ruthless I am.
