Painfully Blind


I dream of your hands around my neck

Trying my best not to suffocate

Because you told me to keep breathing


Think of me and shiver

Like I did

Like I do


Retrace the bruises you left

Put weight on imbalance

Try to make it right


I called back for her that night

Hand on hips

Picture everything else but this




Say I was wrong

Say it was my fault

Hold on to your thoughts


Step backwards

Leave this room

Never look back


Anne-Cathérine Neirinck
