glass words

 
 
...
 
im trying
 
to avoid
 
the glass
 
you spilled


into


broken bits
 
as i
 
tippytoe across
 
but
 
the scent of lies


that was inside
 
reaches my lips
 
&i can taste
 
so
 
i go outside
 
to breathe
 
&even the stars
 
wana hide
 
but
 
im too clouded
 
to seek
 
for
 
the pieces
 
that fell
 
on the ground
 
when your words
 
sliced
 
into
 
me
 
...

  8. You and I seem to be very similar in the way we write our words and apparently we both love purple :) Thank you for sharing this one... the emotion is evident and comes through with such power. Nice to meet you, so to speak.
