I crush the holy word with my teeth and it’s sour; both eyes weep.

I’d forgotten the taste I never knew. I’d forgotten it because I dug its hole with my broken fingers. But the cracked earth sucked its sweetness and spat it out.

The stinging in your chest, the humming noise in your left ear, the tears pouring down unheeded. Your mind refuses to acknowledge the pain. Your reason has left; it watches from afar this desperate body, twitching, shaking and falling apart… It laughs even, at the lack of control, the pitiful madness that has finally broken through the concrete skin.
