Them and Us

They’re bashing in the walls.

Smashing windows, breaking doors down.

Tearing at me,

Pushing me deeper and deeper into myself.

And I recoil, contort myself into their graven image,

They put it upon me,

Consume me,

They rip my face away,

Take my words I’d say,

They push me deeper and deeper,

Into the depths of me,

Light deprived and begging for

Mercy I will never receive.


There is nothing I can do to keep me away from me.
