The darker sides of us

Last time she held her breath it was under
This time I put my hand around her throat.
want to feel it squeeze? I
didn't ask.
and if you want to remember the marks i put around
your pale neck?
she is touching
the red
against snow flake skin
reflections in a broken

When I am inside her
I tell her that I love her
even If I don't mean it
but I did -
I do
our doors are shut
her windows closed for me
why is she always
I'd let her up
but not let go
I'd let her breathe
in attempt to save her
I'd take the punch
I'd take the knife
I'd take the pen
and paper

eventually words
even stop breathing
