swallowed the hook

I swallowed the hook clean

& if I can plead self defence

knowing I would get nowhere

if I hadn’t made that so

but now I’ve pulled out the line

while the hook is choking me

& the line of once friends

is getting thinner as we go

but there can be no other way

if I want to finally be free

stand up in the sun feel the breeze

nothing pulling anchoring me

if I can say I’m sorry

for offering other peoples lies

but now I’m trying to not be the puppet

dangling hanging twisted caught

in those rotten degraded

hidden lines
