Bones Poem by Casey Renee Kiser / snail viXen

Bones



I drink just enough water to stay alive
I eat only when I almost faint
I don't answer the phone
Cause I stay so high, the clouds keep me busy

Since I lost you

I breathe borrowed oxygen
From that memory of you
Sleeping and dreaming softly
Into my hair

I pump borrowed blood
From that memory of you
when you got excited
to be caught in a web

You were sufficiently damaged
But as always, I wanted more
My black heart never
letting you own that smile

I can't afford to write
Too many love poems
My insanity won't allow it
My pen won't hear of it

So this is it
Read it and run
Don't look back
Nothing to see here but bones
