08​-​Apology to an Assassin

from by Pale Robin



This is the subtle grating down, the squinting from the crashing
Powerless to say and grasp, powerless but grasping still
I was in a war, now the war is in me.
You can't leave for thirty days without planning an assassination
Powerless to hold and scream, powerless but screaming still
I'm in a fight but theres no fight in me.

can't swim alone cause I never learned
can't swim with you cause the water fucking burns
theres no solace in swimming when water is burning.

I was in a war, now the war is in me.
