24 (who?)
when they peel back her skin they
find a feeble layer of stringent
exigency saved up for the people who
would lend her a light on her path
to gossamer fabrications, she's

lost herself in fairytales like
the crumbs that don't lead home
and the girl who needs to sleep off
a few decades before things can
fall into place-

she dug her own grave but
it turned out to be a rabbit hole,
she's sea sick- she lulls
       a little disarming when the waves reflect
       your mirrored malignance and the
       only way out is
    (her siren song sounds like
     a martyr's last motive)

she sighs and promises herself to a man
who doesn't give a damn
she dances alone, her splintered bones echo
'the story's over'

the end.
We forgot our words, we left them out to dry in the moonlight.

My dreams have always been vivid (for those that I do remember) and my imagination has always been wild, clear, strong... so imagery is something I find to be supremely relate-able and you never fail to deliver. Your constantly clever use of this, and your old-soul sort of word choice really puts a world of detail into mere lines of poetry :D I love the first stanza the most though the last reminds me, powerfully, of someone tragic I used to know :heart:
My imagination has always been great, too. When I look around, I try to see things in new words. Thank you so much :heart: though I am sorry the last stanza brings up those memories :/

That much is obvious :love: You are marvelous. And you are, of course, welcome Miss Intricately :worship: And please do not worry or apologize! Before she became tragic, she was quite special and a pleasure to know... no matter how things ended up, I always look to the better memories for the people I once knew ^.^ If anything, you've done me yet another favor, reminding me... :bow: :blowkiss:
