A Fantasy of Relief

Pointed subtle agony 
Wraps cold fingers around my heart
Separation of what I am.... 

Free falling lazily like dead leaves 
into what I am not...
Scarlet Rage finger paints 
Black arcs across my world

Red is hypnotic, like flowing blood 
loosed by one small flick of a blade...

Heaviness seeps in, 
as though already dead and buried
A Fantasy of relief.
