"You have no control who lives, who dies, who tells your story."

girl, reinvented: 

a condemnation of her past remanants, 

an easy disregard for her childhood.

   a shattered mirror, of herself

like cracks where he reached inside,

grasping for her hand.


she believed in the illusion of him,

the slight of hand he perfected 

to snake up inside her 

and steal her breath 

                                   (among other things.)

girl, reinvented: 

shadows, whispers, impressions of touch

send her falling, tumbling, sailing into an ocean

where blue water has long since vanished,

and girl aches for a surface that forgot her long ago.

he was so beautiful.

he haunts her memory with lips,

lips that stole her night in a summer

Memories that fill her brain with fog;

she wishes to burn them up,

to make them vanish,

but fire doesn't light in oceans,

and her soul has long since become waterlogged.
