3,413 (4 today)
389 (who?)
I see her there with
Coal dust carved
Into the icy skin
Under her eyes,
And on her lips
Dance a chorus
Of bitter lies.

A skeletal hand of smoke
Claws at my neck
Until I bleed;
She tells me that the pain
Is just what I need.

Her pupils
Are supernovas;
Dying stars,
And her blood
Zooms in her veins
Like speeding cars.

She looks at me
And sneers
At what I am.
She’s a snake,
A liar,
In the guise
Of a lamb.

‘What happened to us?’
She giggles,
A ghost
Of what I used to be.
I reply;
‘I may be you,
But you are not me.’

The sun comes up:
New day.
Yesterday is gone
But see it this way;
The past is part of the future
But the future isn’t the past.
You choose which bits go,
You choose which bits last.

This is just so .... Wow I cant even ... I just .... I love poetry so much... And yours makes me feel like they were written about me ... It just brings tears to my eyes to know that such tormented souls still exist (not in a bad way)
