    You thought you could trap me suffocate me in your cloud of ice vapor leaking through your porous skin seeking refuge from being contained by constricted air tight veins. You thought with a steely glare a tell tale twitch of your big, saucer eyes that I would wither beneath your guise. You...

    I went through split knuckles.             Blood gracing the skin, sweat dripping off my face, masking the cold  Stale stench of cigarettes clouding the air like steamed milk. In the aftermath of everything, I still glowed. My lungs expanded with each crisp swallow of air ...

    listen to the whisper of the wind, never to hear your voice again. drifting outside on the tide of the wind a ragdoll with messy curls and sunburnt skin the moon glistens and glosses over everything unsaid as you watch over me from above the sky burning with the stars of lost souls do ...

    the panic set in deep deeper than the worms burrowing in the cold, hard Earth your passion spoke volumes and yet your last breath was stolen from me that windswept, sky blue day; I wish I could say that the tears don't caress my sunburnt freckled characteristically bumpy nose and t...
