My eyes are screaming bloody murder.
Iron tears sink into Calcium skin.
This is a love-struck,
Vitamin A, B, C equation,
Where potassium passes you on to tomatoes and citrus.
Inhale, exhale, just don't pass out.
Throw zinc onto your wounds.
Watch it blister, let it heal.
Down your Resveritol days to
Redirect your brain to no-war times,
When the ammo shooting past your eyes,
Quenched in sodium throats and caffeine lulled you to sleep.
In your serotonin dream marble woods crumble,
And your eyes screaming.
Head cradled in Calcium skin,
While you're buried beneath the ground rock and sun.

I dunno what this is about - I kind of thought it was about an abusive relationship, and I was in Chemistry when I wrote it, so the elements and minerals made sense at the time. Haha. But I love it. It's so weird. It's very...Me.
