they came like phantoms;

oceanic whispers left me washed out.
those gossamer ghosts that lined
the doorways-- eyes in a constant
state of surprise as they reached for me:

needle fingers pricked, fueling
my addictions. they ached
for my veins, entangled like
the strings of my paper heart

and they stained my skin,
amethyst bruises in the shape
of recognition.

their breaths were the heavy hums
of a forgotten lullaby "one day you
will leave, and you will fade into a
virulent void, like us. you will warm
our icy bones, and we will love you,
like no one else can.

go back to sleep, little girl, we will
come again" with their cerulean
secrets painted on my arms,
they became the empty walls.

I wake up alone, and silence
falls. I only hear the echo of
my hungering heart.
"Just woke up with another fear."

This poem was mostly an excuse for me to do this reading.
warning: silly poetic rambles accompany link clicking. danger ahead :stare:

one day you
will leave, and you will fade into a
virulent void, like us. you will warm
our icy bones, and we will love you,
like no one else can.

go back to sleep, little girl, we will
come again

are chills dangerous?

honestly, one of the more beautiful readings I've heard.

a few of my favorite things...

amethyst bruises in the shape of recognition

virulent void

with their cerulean secrets painted on my arms, they became the empty walls
