An Escape Hatch

Combustible, my flammable mind, a sullen, soaked log of resentment
A shaking hand holding onto that burning match

My life, my everything, this being my heart
A hole the size of a universe, unable to patch

My dreams, my ambitions, this being what I leave behind
This gate, swinging shut, a shaking, trembling hand fumbling for the latch

Who am I but god, the absence of that is
I see the light, finally, an escape hatch

If romance is a gun, I’m aiming it at my head
Love’s nothing but suicide, ending up emotionally dead
