instead of hiding inside
the sickness that lives in my head,
i bide my time
biting my lips.
they eventually crack
and bleed
and it's painful when i smile, so
i rarely do
especially when thinking of you -
i just chew harder
when wanting your face,
now you evoke for me
the iron taste of blood,
a clenched jaw,
a nosebleed
i can't stop
