Waves fill your deep turquoise
pushing me away.
that threaten to drown us and
everything we are.
pushing towards the surface
but I lost you in the chaos
and I doubt things will ever be the same when we find each other again.
Dull sapphire is the color
of the sea that I sink in
as you freeze to death in an ocean
of my piercing, icy stares
from across the room.
Now itʻs cold
as I shiver
water like tear drops drying in the brisk sunlight
dripping off of my body
through my hair that you once called so beautiful.
I slide down against the wall
huddled in my little ball of warmth
and feel my mascara run down my face
as you text me your
I climbed atop a cliff, standing
on the edge and gazing down
over the world I masterfully and
It burns as I watch
the ashes settling like dust
over a former kingdom of beauty
stripping it of harmony and filling every building
with harsh tones of dissonance
nails on a chalkboard.
If I jump I fall
to my death.
If I stay here, I’m just biding my time
until the fire catches me.
There is no safe option
so why wait to die when I can just
get it over with?
What I would give to sprout wings
and fly away
from here, away from everywhere.
