Inflamed; chained down
Battles of bodies
Knotted and bound
Capsized and lost to the deep

Keelhauled; face to face
With the plaque of my disgrace
To embrace the shame
To grow back again

Can’t fall down
Can’t find up
As we drown
I haunt myself to sleep

In the absence of light
Unbearable weight of silence
In the absence of reason
Impossible weight of memory

Outside, glassy-eyed
Cannibalise, inside

Outside, glassy-eyed
Cannibal, I, inside


The same knots
Unconsciously tied
That keep me anchored
Keep me bound
I aspire to
I aspire too
I aspire to
Breathe out
