some sort of revision of an old poem

the cold shoulder
and wandering eyes
my hands, untouched by yours
our lips, unlocked and colorless-
You said it loud and clear
like ambulance sirens
piercing and alarming
it hurts my ears.
there's stinging in my eyes
i'm trying to hold back the tears
the lump forms in the back of my throat
and i can no longer speak.
my chest closes up
i can't breathe
and i can feel the pain run throughout my body
like a lethal injection
flowing through my veins
slowly killing me
like your fading love
