If my nerves had lips…
They would shout: Enough is enough!
They would bite them so hard that I could taste the blood,
“I am bored of being strong and acting tough;
This crap is just too much, rummaging me like a raging flood“!
If my heart had claws…
It would have ripped itself from its current space!
Because there’s only this much a heart can take,
It would have run off to be far; in a better place!
The pain it’s being forced into is causing it to break!
If my ears had hands…
They would have kept away from words,
In silence their haven would have been!
They would have shone away from the herds,
Since on being here I have never been keen!
