4/13: “hollow”

all it takes is one,
one moment,
one flash of doubt,
one oh-god, one heartstopper,
and you’re back where you were.

what a fool you were,
to think otherwise,
imbecile, idiot,
empty-headed bastard
striving beyond your station.

reach, adam,
reach for the stars,
knowing that if you miss,
you’ll burn out just as easily,
rotten apple core on the ground.

she dies without you,
and she dies with you,
but for you, the death with you?
so far the worst,
because you hold the knife.
