be kinder to yourself and make choices for you.

it was withering ebony,
the tight-lipped shadow -
blinking, judging,
neon yellow sharply
trailing on skin and bone,
surveying, teasing,
like a predator would its prey;

sadistic ambitions
and sterling fangs
all bared in the open
clear target, clear goal,
nimble fingers snaking -
nails digging into flesh -
tight around my neck
suffocation sharp ;

venomous whispers
asking, harshly,

who are you, really?”

poison dripping in my ear -
soul shattering,
withering into webs,
remnants of the person
i think i once was, 
living only in faded memories.
NaPoWriMo has begun ( or at least here it has heh) !
i've been waiting for the escapril prompts to come around and once they did i really couldn't resist and had to start writing. it's been long since i've had the time to write with all the projects and whatnot school's been throwing my way :'))

hopefully i stick to it and get 31 poems done this month !! wish me luck :')

    This is wonderful. One random thought, I accidentally misread "Venomous" and "Virtuous" And I actually thought it was kind of a pool Freudian slip. I love venous thought too:) Where do you find escapril prompts!?

    Ooo, good luck! I really like the second paragraph, and the detail through the entire piece! And how thrilling the story is! Good job!
