Tear asunder

More often than not
we tear each other asunder,
because we cannot stand
to look at ourselves
in the mirror.

More often than not
we beat ourselves to death,
because we can no longer
carry the mark
of someone else’ dreams

growing old in our bones,
tattooed under our skin…
I am lost,
can’t you see?
Too afraid to begin.

There’s this terror of dying,
coming out of nowhere,
pushing us into each other;
let us hold hands,
and jump in it.

You look so beautiful,
I’ve seen you a dozen times,
and only now I realize
than you are beautiful
inside.

More often than not
we tear each other asunder,
because our eyes
have lost the ability
to see the light.
