Expectations like a guillotine’s hold
I lay still waiting to be dismembered
Waiting to be held
And fixed
Waiting to be

The future cannot repair my past
Nor would it choose to
Given the chance

Break for water
On thirsty lips
Sunlight beams down
Scorching the life from
Bloodless veins

I am wanted whole
I am wanted together
I am wanted as I once was
But no longer can be

What I want ceased to matter
As a severed head fell
With no mind to decide
