Status: In Progress  |  Genre: Horror  |  No Houses


We have reduced ourselves down,

to nothing.

We have peeled off every layer

of skin,

exposing every muscle

beneath,

every tendon connected by action

or inaction,

through future mobility,

every vein that kept these bones

 from turning into dust,

coaxed and reassured every organ

inside this body with purpose and friendship,

spoke into the darkest parts of our brain,

through the overload of dreams,

discarded every scarred piece,

of our once pure selves,

until we became this,

us;

zero.

Now, we grow ourselves back.

Gross-looking, aren't we, skinless? An excellent write, Doc!
