A waterfall of my blood #ICBYPoetry

November 17, 2018


I once plucked a blade
Of grass
And cut myself
Till I bled out
A waterfall of words
Which gushed down
And towns
A waterfall which scoffed
At gravity
And mightily gushed past
Planets and stars
My words smothering
The Universe
And then you plucked a tuft
Of cotton, you wrapped my wounds.
And I died.
I can’t believe you dared to kill me.

    “A waterfall that scoffed at gravity”. That waterfall is now my favourite fictional character ever. I love this peice, it’s very deep and abstract.
