Random Poem:


Bursting. Beating. Crushing, clinging.
I’m alone, shadows in the room.
He whispers to me, undulating
“Come here my sweet, my bloom.”
I’m the only one in the room.
Yet my ears are ringing.
And he chooses to leave so soon, so soon
And the walls are spinning and spitting and screaming
I just hope they don’t consume
Me as I sit there dreaming
“Come, come here my sweet, my bloom.”
