Cut out my tongue to stop me
Tasting the impurity of these
Slit my eyes, let the curtain of blood
Stop the nightmare visions I
See before me.
Stop up my ears, lest I
Hear yet another
File away my fingers, prevent the prints
From ever remaining at the
Source of suffering.
Carve my nose from my face,
Never again shall I inhale the stench
Of your putrid words.
And finally, stab my pulsing heart,
The centre of all emotion,
All hurt, all..
