From Me

A Poem By Madeline // 2/10/2016

Your frayed edges
have combed
knots
into the contours
of my stomach
You know

My mind has spiraled out
in fifteen
clouded directions
my skin has blossomed with
hundreds of
unwashed revelations
You hear

Force those words into
Your ear
they'll echo before they
ricochet
against your skull
you're tall
I fear

I do not need the
slow dawn's worry
I do not want the
waning light
I do not like the
skin beneath my
eyes to drain
colored vein
For what

For the ache of you
To give
The gape of my mouth
A tepid
draw
I move in muddled worry
Plagued
By all your attributes
So small
You take

Away my wandering
Eye and
Plague my tired
Mind and
I'm walking on a
line
That I
Have drawn to you
From me

Woah! This is so awesome Homie :) I adore the imagery. Raw and gritty! Your poetry sure is taking off to new heights :) I just love a poem that I have to read multiple times, and it makes me stop and think. This is one of those! Fantastic job! (More please!) Hope college is going well for you!
Blessings!
