Tear Me Apart


Tear me apart
between my elbow
and my fist
a blood vein wasteland
skinned
where do I
exist?

cells multiply
die
recreate
like a phoenix
like something more
is it hidden?
is it even
there?

Tear me apart
piece by piece
bit by bit
brick by brick
limb from limb

Is there something
there?
A character?
A devout christian
gripping a rosary
in prayer
a Buddhist
locking legs
meditating
Is there
nirvana?

Tear me apart
split the atoms
slice the cellular membranes
divide the nucleus
go further
than science intended

Can you find
something larger
than life?
larger than I
than you
larger than
the universe
even bigger
the chains
connecting
the space
the multiverse

Tear me apart
tear yourself
apart
hell,
tear it all apart
'til it's all
nothing

But hopefully
there is something
