as i did

i have left them all
i come and sit here alone
i lie down looking at my own fingers
what will they do next
take away with my tongue and hurt someone
or try to fold into prayer today

you are not mine
you do not belong in my soul
you are not my anyone anymore

i run amongst the wild beasts
i sink along with the moon
i laugh as the hyenas do
i cry as the wolves do
i crawl along with the snails in a path
and lie crushed by a wheel on the street
broken and dying
i lie down tearless
as i did, and as i do
