if you love something, press it against your mouth like a pillow-

i get very angry and i swallow it dry, on an empty stomach
like vomit or 6 advil.
i wish i had razor claws, i wish i had knife teeth,
i wish that i didn't rip my enemies apart only to have
three more spring up in their absence.
 i wish i was cruel and selfish and engulfing.

i am pinning it down,
i am swimming in it's smell.
i am swallowing my anger and pressing it against my mouth like a pillow-
arms fall limp against the comforter;
i am okay for today
i am okay.

Oh god, those opening lines. I love them; I will suffocate myself with their words.
