“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


The structure of her mind was crystalline
Like the iodine-stained prism
Of her disorder,
And though she felt a dark sense of
Pleasure in,
Pleasure in,
In
Counting,
In count-
Ing,
One, two, three,
These are some things, some
Things
That would scare you, and
Scare me.


The author's comments:
I tried to make a nerdy chemistry connection about crystal lattice structures, and how that applies to somehow who suffers from OCD (a severe kind). "Prism" is supposed to sound a lot like "prison", but I don't know if anyone would notice that, so I'll put it here. Hope you like it! :)
