You taste like decaying leaves
and October's bad habits-
when it’s halfway through February
that still haunts these bones.

I have allowed you to
claw your love
into my arms
and chant into my
uninterested ears
for much too long.

I wish I was one of those girls
who could say wild flowers
grow up through my nooks
and my crannies just to tear
through my skin, screaming.

I’m just that dead eyed deer
on the side of the road dreaming
of shoving a pen down my throat
and writing these verses inside out.

I am no scribe, prophet, or spell caster.

I know it.
My skin knows it.
My pen knows it too.

Years and years
from now
my mind will dwell
on the way your fingers
chain linked between my ribs
and shook my
vulnerable inside,
violently.

But,
to be a writer
is to be a masochist,
and I refuse to get off
on the pain anymore.
At times, it's a miserable profession.

This is incredible and one of my favorites among all your pieces (I think I say that every time I write a comment, but then again, you are very talented). Also, I completely recognize the emotions in this one.
