"like a bullet through a flock of doves"

every word a
perfectly aimed
bullet

you know what
you’re doing to me
but I know you
wont stop.

another threat,
another verbal beating.

they come and go so often,
I let them slink into the back of my mind,
waiting to surface
through
your next attack.

a slyly disguised aggressor,
no one would believe me,
you play your part so well.

half of me wants to avenge what you’ve done, pushing me towards the edge.
the other half wants to stay silent, embrace the pain I once longed for.

but
a

hairline fracture separates them and both halves agree to just survey the edge.

I will wander away from my

flock

away from you.
closer and closer to the edge
and beyond that,
oblivion I crave lies
waiting for me to
take the risk.

I can smell the despair, residue
of
failed attempts but I know
I will do better than that.

here, at the edge of the Edge
nothing can save me.
no blinding white
doves

will carry me away and bless me
the sweet bliss of ignorange
I used to rely on.

Closer, closer…the edge
crumbles I let gravity
take over and now…
