Body The past pulls me out like a fishing hook
And theres hunger
(on which side?)
And I’m caught

pulling and ripping
leaving trails of blood
but it leads nowhere

I’m slammed into an iron fence
somewhere I can’t return
but what is it?
I don’t recognize the structure
but did I truly forget? never

I just can’t see
it’s dark where you’ve led me

And I just forget everything
This iron gate and me

But wait, it’s all underwater, isn’t it?
I’m not a fish
I don’t even know how to breath

I’m submerged
Death on both sides

The present tense will catch up with me
