chaos is far more intriguing.

almost!
you almost saw me.

can you feel these desperate hands
clawing frailly at your
soul?


i'm-
i'm-
i'm here! at the edge of your vision!

can you hear these battering-ram pleas
slamming into your
heart?


just
turn!
and look!

can you see the lavender bruises
blossoming on these 
knees?


here! i'm waiting-
here.

come find me.

    the ending is kind of chilling - i love the tone shift and the exclamation points and just everything. once again your poetry is so good at depicting certain feelings... just wow
