Pick Your Poison

Arm Poetry for a New Situation

*This was something I wrote on my arm one night recently. Each ~ mark denotes a different section of skin ie my forearm, hand, etc.


The memory will haunt me
like the sunrise haunts the wicked.
Set again, my sun.
~
One moment and a galaxy crumbles.
One kiss that spawned a star;
Formed this silent shimmering.
After this night the day
Might never shine as brightly.
~
'I love you' floats away on the wind,
As forgotten as the cradle of my domain,
Drenched in ashes and cyanide.
~
Here I am
Broken but thankful.
Beautiful and shiny
Pile of porcelain shards.
