poetry by xander 2

× basement of emotions ×


sight fades through my glassed eyes

air thickens in my ripped lungs

my saliva like rusted metal down my throat

thoughts pull through my brain like torn ribbon

the smell of sorrow and salty sleeves 

cold musty concrete of the floor I lay

emotions fill the basement like smoke

suffocating and invading my body

red covers the floor as I grasp the last of life

conscienceness slips like a rug beneath my feet

I know this is goodbye

the smudged ink from the paper 

colorize my numb finger tips

I pray to a god I long forgot as a child

so as I wait for my grip on life to evaporate

I take in the years of memories 

and wish it was all a lie
