All I could do was watch,
As if it had nothing to do with me.
Useless, bloated body,
Avalanching peaks dipping in my valley’s,
Asymmetrical pieces carved from my breast,
Burying this heart in another creature’s chest.
Screams echo empty tragedy
In vibrant, blinking reds
Breaking across my retina’s,
Burning into my memories
Another unmitigated failure.
Time erases nothing,
But diminishes everything.
I threw away my everything
For the chance at a fraction,
A singular moment to dream…
But I lost.
And I keep losing.
I stopped trying, but the failures keep on coming.
And it hurts… and I want it to stop…
I don’t care about dreaming anymore… I just want the nightmares to end…

I believe all people are bits and pieces, and throughout life we can gather pieces from others or give some of ours away. Some people are only out to take everything they can, while others will give until they have nothing left, but most of us fall in between. And yet there are those people who will defy all logic and simply toss there pieces into the trash, for nobody and nothing at all. I don't know if it's possible to get back those pieces that have been thrown away, but this blog is all about my journey, to try and find out if someone who threw away everything for nothing can find something, or anything at all...I'm just looking for a reason to keep on living.

One thought on ““My body is ash, saturated gray, invisible on cloudy days, and blown apart with a single puff of wind.””
I adore the imagery here. Thank you for a great read!
