Swinging from a string tied to your throat
Shrunken and pendulous
Too heavy for its size
When that string pulls with every breath
Tightening in your throat hard to swallow
Sending forth a quiet choked sob from your lips
Bite it down
When your eyes stare into a void
Saltwater builds and blurs
Steaming down your face
When your head throbs and swirls
With memories you'd rather forget
Thoughts your rather not have
Reminders of what you lose
Where do you go?
What do you cling to?
