"Darling"

You say

In perfect syncopation with

Glass shattering in my bloodstream

"I'm sorry"

Rasping

Captivating

Nauseating

Distance and indifference

Bleeding through the wallpaper

As I bend silver hair clips into geometric nonsense

"For everything."

Your fingerprints indelible on my jawline

"I was never"

The taste of ammunition

"Angry at you."

As raw broken bones

Fractured clear through the marrow.

Love this line:
"In perfect syncopation with
Glass shattering in my bloodstream"

Also this is such a great and unique image, perfectly capturing restless fidgeting:
"As I bend silver hair clips into geometric nonsense"

I like the word "indelible" and the way that you used it!

The going back and forth between speaking and narration was done very effectively and really plays up the mood.

yeah i mostly agree with the comments posted before me... It was short and, for the most part, quite simplistic in its message =)

Fragmented and it has a feeling of relentlessness...or restlessness...or both. I'm still not sure xD

But I enjoyed reading it :)
