Desperate Actions

There’s a memory of you I’m forgetting.
You’re throwing your head back laughing,
your eyes crinkle, and there’s a wild grin set upon your face.
The sun is kissing your naked brown skin through the open window.
Tousled hair, shirt unkept, and belt unbuckled— this was how I liked you.

I want to remember you like this. 
For the sake of keeping myself sane.
So I reach out for you.
But there’s no point.
The further I stretch my arm out the...

One Moment

That first inhale hurts worse than a burn.

Your lungs expand and ache. Your throat burns. Your head feels lighter and your body somehow feels disconnected from your brain.

It sounds awful, but I loved it.

You were beautifully destructive.
Gorgeous eyes and soft touches.
So colorful and vibrant.
Your voice, so charming and smooth.
A rare flower.
I let you crowd my life with your seemingly harmless smiles.
Unfortunately, you were anything but harmless.
You were an invasive weed that killed off all my other beautiful flowers; friends, family, even my own self.
You dug yourself into every aspect of my life.
