here, everyone’s pupils are dilated
and skin is stretched too tight
to expose the wind-swept spider webs
writhing beneath their porcelain composure

here, the shadows are afraid of us.

(and it is our desire
to finally come down to that place
of completion
where we
are
simple skeletons
with bleached
bones and
detached jaws)

at night, the rigid ghosts rock me to
sleep.  their cardboard  hearts and
inky eyes just begging to be seen

(it is only in the
darkness that I am
perceived to be more
than I am; holy
nightlight, exalted
star to guide them
all home

sleepily but
steadily blinking
out.)

the current carries my name,
I have spent too little
too long on rivers that
only flow south

I vomit up saltwater and
try to remember,
forget
fickle graves and fettered wings
(combination of too many scary stories and maddie ramblings.)

all suggestions/ interpretations are welcome.

"I have spent too little

I don't know why, but these are my favorite lines of this. I suppose I'm just relating to them in some manner.

Anyway this is gorgeous. I love it. Uberly.

I love this so intensely it hurts me. The imagery is wonderful and it's incredible how the structure is just flowing freely and so naturally.

I really like these images, Maddie.
Surreal, but in a very grab-able way.

Nicely done. :heart:
