it's bad, so i might edit it later.
and i could have done a lot more with it,
but i had to make myself stop somewhere.

suffering from internal injuries;
then someone lit a match.
the light stopped all the bleeding.
but i must have gotten too attached.
because-
the rapidly growing and glowing candle,
it rose into a flame. spread into a fire,
now i'm screaming out your name.
still blood-soaked, all the same.
strike a match- now grab your lighter.
leave this laughter at the shore--
the shore of our crippled memories,
cause i don't go there anymore..
the colors, they intensify, burning through my eyes;
i'm drowning in the shades of your reverberating lies.
suffocating waters of turquoise and blue.
waves resounding in every hue.

sand of purple, and rocks of red;
get this beautiful nightmare out of my head.
