leonine glare

i take my pain
amplify it
until it burns
white hot
until it burns
its way into
the aether

luckily
there has never
been
a shortage
to mine

i let it
nearly
kill me
kept it
caged
behind dead
brown eyes

humpty dumpty
the fool
filled with
angry hornets
finally fell
one time too many
and all of his
insignificance
spilled over
the dirty alley
adjacent to
suicidal daydreams

now all i
know to do
is let the agony
leak
staining the world
in lavender lightning
a pebble
in a landslide
still nothing

but nothing
with a voice
screaming
in cursive
yelling out
in lowercase

i take my pain
amplify it
because
when i reach
into the
broken glass
cage
piercing deep
into my
emptiness

it feels good
to bleed
that means
they haven’t
fucking won
as i glare
through
newly opened
lion’s eyes
at a land
of impatient
prey
and empty
prayers.
