Fall or Fly

You lie. I know it
I’ve seen it in your eyes
Magnetism. That’s what it feels like
We draw ever closer
But we fight against. Every. God. Damned. Inch
It’s electricity in our veins
A pain we miss when deprived of
The only thing keeping us
From bleeding out
Is the knife in our ribs
So do you want to bleed out, fry up,
Or fall into oblivion, together?
