Midnight Blue Like a dream it consumes me. I rest my hand where my heart use to be The dagger remains buried deep, like fault lines no longer aligned. lava spews ready to burn me alive. Will I heal? My shame milady evergreen. touch me not! Or I will fall apart never to be clued back together again. Do I want to be? I shiver and shake in fear of what's to come drenched in impotency. my past chases me threatening. the laughter of yesterday mocks me. What could have been? Warmth removed, replaced by midnight blue. I stand alone inconsolable as I must. Will I die before life returns, before the dawn awakens me?
