Two Minds Break Alike

whispering speech

barely audible

he’s conspiring

the dollars in his hand are clenched tight

bartering with another

money for steel

he lures me away

quick movements

the flash of skin

the scrape of metal

the crimson

how did we get here

was it what i said

the taunts and harsh words

or him

the tears and breaking voice

or both

the crimes

i turned him in

i brought this upon myself

didn’t i ?

it’s too late

the scrape is not a scrape

but a cut

deep

like the rift between us

what was it

the shove in second grade

when he stole my washable marker

the kiss i pulled away from

after i begged for it

just to see him hurt

the drunken shouts

at a sophomore party

where i had too much

where i told him things

god what’s wrong with you

your dreams

your family

you

what’s fucking wrong with you

but really

did it need to go this far

he stole a case of dos equis

didn't share it with his junior friends

but did he

so

i turned him in

i turned him in

that’s what i’ve always been told is the thing

to do

right ?

i knew he was worn thin already

torn apart

by the slice of my

soul's obsidian blade

i knew it

so

i told

god knows what would’ve happened if i didn’t

that was my logic

but

now i’m laying on the ground

he’s sullen before me

a gash on my stomach

and

holy hell it hurts

what did i expect

honesty never helped anyone

but

i spoke up

did i

yes

i wanted him to get busted for something

i was protecting others

from his off-color ways

he was always kind

no

yes

he was always kind

no he wasn't

i wanted to punish him

i was doing the right thing

for not being as screwed up as me

i was doing the right thing

i wanted to punish him

for not being a jerk

for not having a single reason to be disliked

for being the best boyfriend i could ask for

for always being so goddamn perfect

well

damage done

to both

i’m bleeding out

he’s bleeding within

we’re deranged casualties

together

now isn’t that cute
