sorry i haven't been around.....too much for me....but now i am back, and hopefully back to writing....

Glass windows upon my bedroom door grow colder
Now that a tender icy breath has been placed by me
Lying in my bed at night I convulse with my tears
Praying you would be beside me to kiss heat into my body
Yet all around me, I see nothing but a blank airless place
I am losing grips with reality as I lay here in front of you
Unprotected from the blasts that you have given me inside
Innocent blood pours over me, itís my own to drink a solid glass
Before you steal the rest of it, and I multiply the numbers
I should already be gone, because your edged words
Cut me more than 1 hour ago, and still I flex my fingers
Grabbing for the stillness to move and bring me somewhere
For it to take my skin away, the mask I hid behind so long
Why not? You have done the damage just finish me off
Add me to a collection in your little white refrigerator
So I will be there for you to play with when ever you please
You do not see the blood stained dove sitting on your windowsill
Unsoftened by your fake kiss to revive my lost soul
In a pale body laying on heated sheets, in the midst of the coldest of a summers night


*the bloody tide comes in on the shore, time after time*

Dang Riley.  Some strong words/images here.  And "take my skin away", I'll have to tell the moth about that line, she'll love it!

Rich and powerful.  Your imagery is vivid and frightening, inviting the reader to experience your own feelings as you yourself recall them.  This is everything poetry should be.

You rock, Ri...

Faith is a fine invention
When gentlemen can see
But microscopes are prudent
In an emergency.
