pinch

IMG_5770a-sm

in the dream
you were bleeding out
and counting on me to do something
to make it ok

i was terrified
of losing you
of losing me

digging deep
i found the artery
pinched it closed
with all my might
to keep you here
to keep me here

i hate those dreams

i woke with sweat and my version
of a rapid heartbeat
thumb and forefinger pressed together
with a ferocious dream purpose

still
