slow steady….slice the skin like drenched paper tears
with perfect symmetry a pristine gash appears scarlet chaos stains the heavenly white an explosion listless and exhilarating
the pain-a drug raw & inebriating giddy, a tingling cold
but still sizzling-nerves alive-like firecrackers lighting the dark night sky a noiseless scream erupts
tender, raw & unforgiving the bitter sweet flavour
like burnt almonds captures her breath eyes like burnt chocolate laced with red..
admiring the dark purple sketches adorning her broken façade
--sprawling a mess.
