I am very excited to finally have something to post with this beautiful lady. I believe I first met Nicole Marie during a twitter conversation happening between several other very talented bloggers over a year ago. Since then I have been lucky enough to watch her life unfold on Facebook and I think she is without a doubt one of the most beautifully unique people I know. Enjoy this new duet piece and visit Nicole Marie if you haven’t already at Words And Other Things. Please find your way to her blog and get lost inside her world.
Written by Nicole Marie and HastyWords
He tells me I have the most gorgeous eyes
Close them fast as a fading memory, does he still remember they’re blue?
That my skin is perfect and my hair is soft
Does he feel it all like glass when the lights have faded?
But the demons inside my head are hungry
They turn me over like a hurricane, teeth like hollowed bones
Chewing every word and spitting them out
In some darkness I am sinking now
Leaving only naked skeletons, telling lies
His words fade into cushions, curtains, anything but me
Eating and devouring each line and verse
Now in ruins I am swimming
Turning love into deceit, starving my heart
Behind paper I flail, behind me I listen closely
Left in a world with visceral scars
drawn upon shredded skies;
and every whispered hello
sounds more like goodbye
