Winter
is still clinging
to my skin,
with Autumn
sleeping within the tangles
of my night witch hair.

65 days to learn
how to
fall,

& Icarus, with his
sun kissed fingers
wrapped around
my throat, giggles
knowingly in my ear.

I have misplaced my
reckless disaster
of a heart
so many times,
I’m not even sure
it ever existed
at all.

But knuckles,
they never lie-
pressed flowers,
lipstick stained
against my
uprooted spine.

Covered in frost
& silence
I am a magenta
February-

the imprint of teeth
that bruised centuries
between me
& bed sheets.
This headed in a direction I'd rather not write about, but it seemed to rear it's ugly head anyway. I'm sorry.

Gorgeously tragic. Your poetry reminds me of Sylvia Plath's Ariel; there's the vivid imagery and the cutting emotional undercurrent. And of course, it is truly inspiring!

This was beautifully heartbreaking but also so thoughtfully, and thoroughly. Visual that it was romantically stunning as well, as insightful melancholic, and dreamy. A wonderfully written piece of poetry.

"I have misplaced my

"

If I could, I'd frame that stanza.
Absolutely stunning. :heart: This may be my favorite piece by you so far.
