You slipped through my fingers

like a million little pieces of sand.

Vanishing into the mess of our past lives

and living in the unmetionable memories.

I like it. This ends my promised 3 pieces XD Sorry it took so long, but I had forgotten. Anyways, about the piece: It's rather short, but I, with the capacity to take up an entire microsoft page for only a small piece of a vent, am not the one to talk. I like the little "bite" I get from the words, unmentionable memories was the part I felt it. Congrats, it's a great free-verse The justice has spoken

What I love about your poems is how they express pain in such a beautiful language. You take the broken glass of a heart shattered and turn it into a cathedral's masterpiece. It's incredible!
