" Never regret something you've done, because at that moment it was exactly what you wanted"

The ticking of the tock
softens to a muffled rattle
as its clear tie dye eyes zone in

my heart thums
like a timpani drum in a murder mystery
as it creeps around the corner

my breath hardens
to a static puff
and its hiss travels through my veins

i feverishly bat my lashes
before a blurr over comes my vision
and its claws sink deep into my core
