strangle the stars

it didnt make me bleed
not the way thought it would
when you slid that blade
deep under my skin
tearing at the very heart of me
and me in my recoil
pale sweat running down my brow
you couldnt hurt me
not the way you wanted to
the way you needed to
i kept the most important part
hidden so deep
you would never find
as you razed my soul
like some mad assassin
