FREE WRITING

7
i'd like to decorate the lawn
with golden goblets;
i'll also water the snow
with blood of the grapes
with no extra payment.
it'll be a puckered purple
scar on the pale skin of winter.
perhaps all this will ease
my mind; tongue ripping
through salt-encrusted
rims. teeth. and sinew.
my fingers are trembling,
scratching my sister's
agony in the skirt of chaos.
my nails are wrecked and
bleeding-like wine-from
scraping the sidewalk
into my gauzy mouth.
frostbitten soil dribbles
between my palms
like stinging, cloudy sleet.
i toe at the waterlogged
moon drenched in wine.

I decided that writing poetry is the better alternative compared to doing maths. It's late, I have classes tomorrow, but I can't sleep until I've finished my assignments *sighs*. I've got to work harder for higher marks in maths; it's not going so well at the moment. Does anyone else have issues with brain-maths comprehension?
