i cannot begin

i cannot begin to explain the moment that

comes before and after the chill that racks

my bones and skin and wraps my stomach

in knots around itself as i begin to wish my

life away and crave for the sharp sting of

metal on skin and wish nothing more than

to use pain to replace the loathing of self

that swells like a fungus in my body
