Laughing Without Breathing

It only takes about five minutes,
Before she cuts my heart open,
And lets it breathe.

A strange way of showing love.
Either way, it felt relieving.
But this was years ago...

Now, I'm biding my time.
Sitting alone! Laughing.
The widest smile you've seen,
Across my face.

I've split my cheeks wide open,
From the corners of my mouth,
To my earlobes.

I did it all because she isn't here,
Which means my heart can't breathe.
No one else can open it up.

Not even me...

I'll sharpen my teeth,
To bite away at my heart,
But it won't fucking open!
