I broke every bone in my body
so I could have a reason to drown
in the isolated ocean inside me.

And then,
when my dilapidated lungs finally caved in,
I swam ashore and crawled across the polluted sand.

Only glass-edged skin
and salt-licked eyelashes
can help me now.
Another prompt from *DearPoetry's NaPoWriMo list [link]. This time it's number eighteen. And now I'm really beginning to think I should have participated in NaPoWriMo because I've been having the need to let off some steam and this is a good way for me to do it.

Anyway. This one is short and sweet. Actually, more like briny. Haha, pun.

If only inspiration for poems/stories would come to me when I needed them and not when I was feeling sorry for myself.

Edit: Holy shit. Front page.

love the first two stanzas; I would drop the last but that is just me :)

Thanks. The last two are the most personal though, so I want to keep them.
