Strangers - Poem by Velvet Astraea Dido

Set free this soul of mine
Freeze the frame of each second
Tired eyes, tired dreams
Tired screams
Wash away this pain
Drain down
Erase. Evaporate
My senses numb for you
My thoughts ache for you
to see:
How my world shatter
Every second of your breath.
You create a little monster
Chasing my dreams away.
And I laugh with misery
As your shadow
Decorates your icicle lips.
Until now you’ve never known
Who I am. What I am.
And I will not know you.
