strangulation

every day it’s like my chest gets tighter

and your hands around my neck get tighter

and I can’t breathe anymore.

 

                        you place your hands in some delicate way

                        so that everyone around thinks it’s a mere gesture

                        but your finger nails are digging in deeper

 

                                                    everyone smiles at you,

                                                    and what worries me the most is that

                                                    sometimes I do too

                 

                                                                           down to the ground I fall,

                                                                           finally running out of breath

                                                                           and still, your hands remain.
