An ultimatum of confusion
A prophecy of hurt
What has become is undone
Rushing thoughts become inert
Resting the head on winter earth
The ice cusping at the lobes
Numbs the ears for sharp words 
Injecting into the heart's plateau
You can hear the breath
The words dragging in a clot
Like a blade shoved into flesh
The mind twists to a slipknot
You refuse to eat, to drink
You're heart can barely think
When you give your love without alert
And only gets thrown into the dirt.
