bleed me

take me in your unfolding,
in your encompassing…gaze
and bleed me of my self;
tear me away that i might
be filled
with a better me,
a better me than the one you see
that shuts it all out and off;
i never wanted to be a mirror,
i wanted to be the image that jealous glass would capture
like lightning trapped in the retina,
a great green tear that tore the world in two;
hurry and rip me away
for i hear darker drumbeats ahead
and they get louder and louder
filling me with fear
