hollowed out bones snap too easily; believe me,
i tried, and when i poured the bleach into the two
broken pieces, i heard the sinners’ cries. but i kept
going, allowing the overflow, until it leaked over
my past charred fingers with the ash tattooing skin;
then i took a sip, as though the bones were cups i
couldn’t quite understand, and slipped the other
toward you. you looked at it bored, but i saw the
fear: greased in your hair, sweating from your neck,
cloaked over those blue marbles of yours that you call
eyes. no, you cannot fool a fool, that type of irony
just doesn’t exist. since you refused the drink, don’t
attempt an apology, shallow honesty is not becoming
on a rising king. or queen. or ruler. whichever you fancy
yourself most at this moment, because it’s the only one
you’ll ever receive. here’s a secret, since the moment’s now
passed, if you took a sip of my offering, you’re fantasy’s
ending wouldn’t be such a tragedy; but no, instead you
chose refusing, which hurts when comes the accepting.
no, you cannot fool a fool, because’s the fool’s already
learned; their past taught them well, why else do you
think they have burn marks and scars?
we're all kings and queens of the fantasies we wanted to be.

    That ending was just haunting. This whole piece is haunting really. It has an air of indifference, and yet under the surface lingers this fear, this uneasiness that's hard to place. Your piece always manage to evoke so much, like it's never just one feeling, it's a plethora of them and they always manage to work so well together. I'm simply in awe of this piece, the way it fits so well and the imagery that drips so eloquently from it. Just everything is divine and I find myself craving more and more of it.
