something about #5

Something about my skin being the earth’s mantle and my veins are fault lines pushing past each other, aching side by side waiting for the world beneath them to horrifically moan in bone crushing agony, splintering until I’m certain my infrastructure is completely demolished. the lava, once trapped in my core, unleashes and drowns me from the inside until I turn to ash

Something tickles my shoulder and I flinch, throw my chest forward as a gasp sneaks through my lips. I look back thinking I’ll see something creepy and crawly and all teeth and grotesque burrowing it’s claws into my skin but it’s a strand of my hair falling away from my bun and I have to laugh at my theatrics, I’m just so melodramatic this way, so make something out of nothing, so why are you making this a bigger deal than it needs to be, so this isn’t about you,... more

Something about keeping a sweater I outgrew hoping one day I’d fit into it again and something about it collecting dust and slowly absorbing the stench of plastic after being shoved away into the attic that’s too hot to sit in so I don’t go up there because the heat is suffocating but I think of my sweater with the elbow patches and small hole in the pocket and I keep telling myself it’ll be mine once more and something about it leading back to you
