Picture this

the hellish recurring nightmare
of all the faces I love most
peering at me from a semicircle

thoroughly disenchanted with
who I turned out to be
a silly disappointment
in a pool of tears

frantically scraping arms
for veins
sobbing end it please

but they hide the knives
uselessly flailing
in the straitjacket
we call life
