I love you, Laurelie -part 1-
I'm running. From the Shadows. I'm not sure how long I have been running, but it feels like years. The Shadows loom over me, and I cant seem to ever outrun them. My lungs are tightening, struggling to get oxygen. My legs feel like twigs, threatening to snap with each step. I'm sure I'll collapse any second, then it would be over. How good that seems right now, to be freed of torture. Eternal numbness.
Another cramp contorts my body. But the worst pain is the taste of blood dancing on my tongue. I don't know why I have blood in my mouth, but its definitely there, spilling over on the sides. I feel like an animal. Though in all this chaos I have only one thought. Run to survive.
So I keep running.
Suddenly, my foot catches on an invisible object. I fall, but I never reach the ground
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
Keep in Touch!
