For Billy…

The razors edge
Balancing
Hedged bets
Defeated
Suck up
Despair
Ignore
Lungs
Vice gripped
Shredded bare
Keep smiling
At the rot of lies
Keep positive
As darkness
Crushes
Dare not indulge
In a frown or
Crown of thorns
It is okay
Others say
It is okay
Don’t complain
Hurt quietly
Invisibly
Silently
Dance
On glass
Dance
On nails
In the moonlight
Of your hatred
Tell everyone
You are fine
Dull
As the knife
In your back.
