Abbreviate

I cut it short

before it grows too long.

Well, it is cut short.

Leave it at that.

Twice.

In memory of my emotions,

and in need of inescapable futures.

I tried running before.

I tripped, fell and died.

But I cut it from my ankle,

not my heart mind –

and I am up again.

Still trapped though –

I left those remnants entangled in my heart.

It’s a flesh wound.

Stitches suffice.

Cut those threads microscopic doctor.

I don’t want to lose again.

Love anymore.

But no less.

Even if I didn’t cut it short,

Time,

is natural.

It will conquer all.

So I’m not alone.

I want to cut away from this cut though.

I wish I could swim in this opaqueness

Fly with my love forever –

Power,

is lacking.

Chance.

But I can abbreviate it.

For a short while.
