Dead Weight

Our love is mine,
uneven.

Comfortably you stay,
never threatening to leave
as if your presence is an honour
that I should thank the heavenly lords for.

You give less energy than what you take,
with time we are bound to break.

Taking advantage of my indecisions
knowing I will never give up on you and me,
no love to return
yet you decide to linger around
dragging me down to the ground.

Word Vomit

Stuck at the bottom of a buried hole
the only light comes from the opening above.

Soil walls are unreliable to climb upon,
I cannot claw my way out.

Nausea induced by panic,
severe brain seizure
body spasms,
knowledge regurgitates through my mouth.

Words flood the pit
and I float to the surface
as I take back control of my body
and leave the exam room.
