the demons that call don’t like to be ignored
Summer of 1979 by ShadowDancer

Buried

Thoughts of you are tiny imps / whispering in my ear, / endlessly / ceaselessly / tirelessly.

Tear It Out – #3

photo boxes and red leather shoes

your entire life / reduced down to small flashes / kept in a box

brandy

fresh from a pulsing vein i / will spill myself out in small / painful drops that drain my / soul

Tear It Out – #2

They were the same brown eyes, full of the world, just heavier from experiencing more years.

Tear It Out – #1
