my eyes glazed over in grey
at the vision of your fading face
and i smiled a crackled red smile-
really fiery red for all the hate in my soul
my tears dried up in a rusty well
that had no more wishes to grant
and dandelion fluff slowly blew into my eyes-
a snowy circus danced around me
i licked my lips glossy
and opened my mouth
to expose half-chewed strawberry seeds-
blacker than death.
and as the wind carried my laughter with it
my hair moved aside to expose faded tan lines-
memories of who i once was
before the sun turned so damn dark.
More of my poetry!
