Dry, itchy, red, and sore.
I can’t rub them anymore
They burn like fire and dry like the sun
They go deep inside to my heart, to my mind
I can’t keep it inside for another hour
There is fear that is power
It makes me sweaty, it makes me scared.
It runs out, contaminating everything.
-MAKE IT STOP.
Keep it in!
You can’t kill it all
You can’t lose control.
Hold my boy!
Hold firm to the darkness that seals.
You are but a vehicle for the robber.
Open your eyes you’ll forget what they are
Break the seal of your lips and never speak again.
Not for physical damage
-That’s too obvious
But for fear and for faith.
