Anticipate

I want to live
I want to die
I want to live
I want to die
Peeling petals seems as good a way as any to decide

Years of emotions, as waves they rise
to crest so high that when they crash
on grating shore
the corpses of shells strip skin

They bend the rules
They break your back
They bend the rules
They break your back
It’s really not so difficult to anticipate that

Rollercoaster twisted steel and
bony cages for my limbs
Rattling close to the edge now
One more crack and I’m in.
