Crash

I wrapped my car around itself / just backing away from this cliff / screaming veins scarred in my lungs / choking on ripped out back seat steams // twisted metal cuts my face your / opened heart throbs out of time / tightly strapped against the tears / stained and dark, thick and sour like cream // fresh blood seeps in around old scars / tired on empty in the night / badly worn shoes loose in the trunk / the rattling shock drowns out your scream // I tried to make the turn that night / right against the ruts you left / and your eyes blinked wide in terror / crashing glass in the space of dreams
