with garbage and emptiness and liquid tar.
I stood there and forced myself to watch
even though it made me sick;
I stood in silence as you did your work
never glancing my way, never diverting your devotion.
I stood in silence as my soul filled with poison
and when you finally did look over
beyond a shadow of a doubt
that you were the one to crucify me;
to sentence me to suffocate
and drown in my own bodily fluids.
