Emergency

I have a scar
From my breast bone
Down to my pelvis bone

Bisecting me like a mountain range

It’s deep
Where they cut
Into my vena cava
A piece of me
That was never meant to be seen                Much less touched

The surgery saved my life

But my skin
Bears the pain
Of being ripped apart
And sewn back together again

My brain can pretend
It never happened

But my body will never forget

And my heart
Still grieves
For what might have been

Why don't you come to my house? Why don't you drag me right out? Past all the shit that I said, I'm saying Why don't you cut up my mouth? And I don't care what you use Just don't ask me to choose I forced a field to allow you That's not so easy to do I said, I said what I said I want you to help me (Oh) Surrender, rend it, it's yours Out in the open We're wide open (Oh) Surrender, rend it, it's yours Locked in a body In love with the process of... Surrender, rend it, it's yours Out in the open We're wide open Night light comes into my room Some shade of bruise-colored blue Moves through my mind like a chemical Imbalance on schedule Rend It by Fugazi
