Synthesis

by damommza & sunovawot

Thesis

in the heat and in the moment
when life and time stand still
do you hear my heartbeat pounding
while my breath is very shrill

does the anger leave your body
to be replaced by fear
is the running worth the leaving
can you say goodbye to here

as you run away so blindly
your sight veiled with hot tears
I need the words “I am sorry”
to finally reach my ears

Antithesis

you demand apologies
have you such arrant gall
when all you did was beat me down
and try to make me crawl

at last I broke the chain you forged
to hold me by your side
had I not found my liberty
my spirit would have died

so take these words and gnaw on them
to match what you gave me
a system full of acid bile
and a longing to be free
