"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare



a nervous voice 

of stutters stammering,

a mouth that

revealed too little 

and showed not enough of

the wild flowers

 growing beyond 

the soil of her white 

pearl teeth. 

A red smirk of 

destruction carves

 his name 

deeply into the 

bark of her skin. 

Dark girl,

inside of her 

peach skin. 

Dark like 

night and 

thunderstorms that


down disappearing 


These are the

 shadows that swell,

that squirm 

and pounce

like his hands

 tracing the 

blueprint of her body. 

Windows darken

 into charcoal

 drawings as she

 passes by 

with clouded 

Carmel eyes and 

a numbness 

screaming throughout

 her limbs.
