"I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul." -Pablo Neruda

You still ache in every part of me

My veins are full of crimson sea water

You used to tear apart the sky for me

But now I've got colors tearing through my skin

I'm lashed together by bones stained with hope

And you've got to promise me that it gets better

Because my bloody pupils won't stop screaming about you

Freckles like tears on my ashy sky of a face

Licking at the edges of the grief I feel

I am running on your precious broken glass

My lips are bleeding from all the words that try to tear past them

I am on the bathroom floor wrapped up safe and shattered in all my ghosts

My desperation is starting to color all the edges of the gray days

I am a drowning man in love with a piece of driftwood

I wrote this when I was lying on the bathroom floor sobbing like I'd never stop because she makes me hurt.
