A Hypothermia

Ashe 06 Dec 2017 Tag: default 1 comments, leave your own..

Bleed into me.
Your woes. 
Your fears.
I gladly carry.
I could run the tips of my fingers across the faultlines of your life for hours,
lips touching imperfections and anomalies alike
Marveling the beauty of it all.
Curling my hands in the mire of life as you made it
Trying to find compromise in a land of minefield misguided emotion
Prosthetics have replaced many parts of me long ago
Crippling the processes of open communication
I fall apart
Smoke and ash curling around shattered limbs and sympathies, 
The mists entwining sinew and bone
Replacing what used to be,
I am whole even through the ashes
Strangely intangible 
Reaching out for something 
A light in the dark
Stumbling into you 
Blinded and crippled
You bled constellations into the dirt
Gnarled and bent into something numb and hollow
Candles burning in a sunken crater chest
Ensnared my being like the most beautiful cancer I've ever seen
Threading through my veins like ivy over bricks
Taking root to my soul
Blooming like orchids in dust
You wandered
In wonderland warzones wrapped in jaded epiphany
Bringing warmth to frozen wastelands 
Shattering icy cold indifference
Smoldering and singed 
Cauterizing raw emotions
I am so painfully numb
I don't know how to speak anymore
I am frozen silent
And its killing me.

I don't know how to speak anymore
I am frozen silent
And its killing me.
