THE MELANCHOLIC ME

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.

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
