Your Cover

Written by: Nadifee Elarmo

I engrave a memory of you
deep down I buried in my emotion
not minding the bleed from castrations

A venom for a hoping heart 
I can't barely remember the start
when your doors offered me a curse

Caught in between two worlds
confusions strikes my waking soul
I am numb and you're the only cure

And there was a dagger in your words
that hits my body going through my brain 
but there's a torrid sweetness i taste in pain

I have bitten my lower lip
my bewildered tongue wants to take a sip
a single truth from your lies tip

My foot on your hottest sand
ripping off its upper skin, it stings but
I’m ready to suffer just to get through your cover
