Shattered (11/25/11) It was almost two years ago that my uncle died, and it has been one of the worst memories I’ve ever had.
I remember my mom telling me, her surprising calm exterior as she was probably dying inside. She left me be, myself and I, completely alone on the third floor go my grandmothers house.
The day after Thanksgiving. All good people die the day after a holiday.
I remember my heart shattering in my chest, slowly falling apart to crash to the stairs leading up onto the Top Deck. I still feel my lungs close up as the memory starts to take over.
I clutched at my chest, trying to rip my rapidly pounding heart out of my trembling body. I was gasping for breath that wouldn’t come.
I’d hugged him goodbye, thinking that I’d see him later that day.
Now I’ll never see him again.
Hours of my own personal hell flash by with the rapidly ticking seconds. I’ve cried my soul out in 43 minutes.
I don’t speak. I just walk
Daggers and InkDraw out my heart
With the tip of the pen,
And scrawl on my arms
In ink coloured red.
Erase the thoughts
Swirled in my mind
In dashes and curls,
In coloured designs.
Let your tears fall
And blur all my lines.
Let the colours fade,
Disappearing in time.
Retrace my heart
In red and blue hues.
And when you are done,
I will be dead too.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
