Not Close to Golden

Addicted to you
and the paranoia
you sowed in
me  I rip-clawed
scratching out
from your eyes
hot flames
once devouring
minuscule hope

hiding out  in
the cracks  of
symphysis  col-
lapsing   under
beings  you hot-

one sorry
jab  at a time
from the
slithering spike
of your slippery psychopathy
