Silence saved me cloaked in quiet amid volatile hostility unpredictable as a breeze volcanic in volume tectonic times Silence saved me grateful to a little girl smart enough to know and grow into a warrior woman with voice suffice to bring beasts to knees (Image from Pinterest)
Your hatred had a heart beat Separated from your soul A lifetime ago Why eternally unknown Pervasive pulse Rampant rhythm Powered by purity Found in voiceless vulnerability Negatives burned in my retina Anchored acrimony Breaching bloodstream Contaminating Parasite Tainted tick Last kiss Last trick Vampire bliss Accrued courage Hell-bent Stained survivor Walk under a ladder … Continue reading Flat Line
