life slouches against the door

[i think i can hear it crying]


sickly grins lick my lips;

rub the undersides

of scream-sore throats

stained with the sweetest sort of bruise


every nerve--

a soft

atrium flow;

cutting

capillaries


screams all my own

swallowed in cotton lungs


pressure in my skull

fire in my veins

holding the skin i had


clinging tighter to fragility

and i just can't find

the strength to cry

anymore


the night stretches on for months


red.

red.

black.


i shake like a leaf
six feet under this infected sky.

--

-sniffle- I gotta cold.

You got this... from a cold? This is incredible, and again beautifully written. I love the way you describe things, and the words you use xD

Hi.

The goal of #PennedPaper is to provide exposure to the under-appreciated writers of dA and to provide feedback on all works submitted to us. For this reason we do not accept deviations already found in six or more other group galleries at the time of submission to us. This is not an attack on the artist and has nothing to do with the quality of the deviation. For this reason, your work has been declined. For more information please read this news article [link]

You are welcome to submit other pieces found in less than six other group galleries to us.

Thank you,
thestaccatobutterfly - :iconpennedpaper:
