His Eyes

maleshadow.jpg

Heart,

breaks free from chest

to rest,

wrestle with intestines,

butterflies,

nestling in nets, nests,

no longer lodged behind rib’s parallel lines.

Chest becomes empty drawers,

breaths shallow,

can’t deepen,

nothing to store.

Paralysed,

thoughts intertwined,

knotted stomach, tangle of vines.

Skin breaking,

bursting in hives,

heat envelops,

I will not survive.

Because of those eyes.
