crashing nightingale

I let you pull me under
rip your teeth into my skin
tear me apart
You left your secrets on my lips
and I’m unable to bear them
left hostage
to words that were better off locked away
gasping for answers
as I try reaching through these ties
to hold you close against my heart
for just a moment more
