A Kiss Overdue

I wanna free fall from a thousand feet

Hit the ground so hard there’s nothing left

Or get blasted into a fiery furnace

Burn up in flames in a solar flare theft.

If a part of me remains, don’t wake me up

Let me sleep, just leave me at rest

Too late for apologies, I just wanna scream

Bury me alive, no compression of chest.

I don’t need your glue to piece me together

I’d rather stay shattered just like this

I don’t need perfection in a broken world

Turn off the ventilator because something’s amiss.

Slice me up and put me in salad

Examine my layers as the blade blasts right through

My eyes stained red from the diffusing sting

Let the hurt reek havoc like a kiss overdue.
