My truth. My life.



If you were to gaze into my blue eyes

you would find a melted heart.

I have been dragged in my bare skin

through many darknesses.

With every breath I inhale

I find myself suffocating deeper into this prisoned existence.

I will continue to share my pale cracked smile

with the world to convey a pseudo untethered presence.



This is a challenge that I just ran across:  I enjoyed doing this!  It is Jasmine’s Jetsam.



No promises on what the future may bring, but here’s a word list for you to play with:

dial melted blue retro bare dragged suffocating gang hesitate lizards tarred patches cracked pale pseudo project prison scars conscience pool

From one of the YA books I picked up from the library the other day, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. I haven’t read any of it yet, so I don’t know if it’s any good.

P.S. If you don’t know the drill, write a poem using one, some, or all of the words above, linking back to it down below. Modify the words however you like.
