Painting molten lava on

My fingernails

To make me strong again-

Hard as nails-

So scratching the walls

Won’t hurt as much.


Dipping my heart in

Melted steel.

Hard as stone.

So when it beats

I cannot feel it;

When it sings

I cannot hear it.


Coating my soul

In a layer of dirt-

Lay it to rest,

Too far gone and

Long forgotten.
