Your touch
plays a melody
on my body, this instrument
within my nerves.
You continue your masterpiece,
although I am hurt.
Like a nail being
hammered into a wall,
I feel the pressure
yet through it all, I let your words
cut me open
every syllable, every thought.
This instrument,
this masterpiece in you-
is playing itself out on me,
and I was never meant to be,
for the pleasure and entertainment
of so-called artists
and musicians.

Everyday the simpliest things
have become more and more complex,
My blue eyes have cried
oceans and sad songs
Even reality has turned into make-believe,
like play time in Kindergarden.
The sun no longer shines,
and it rains
I am dead without you.
