Pink teeth on a tattered scooby bear
laugh lines on side kicked pillow
receding hairline on silver hairbrush
wrinkled bedspread after a aftermath of lusty love
I look around
at the state of my chaos
evidence of my hijacked emotions
something crimson paints my naked feet
hypnotizing me with its sticky consistency
I walk bare
leaving footprints of a new dawn
on my stained tiled floors
what’s in words?
of this moment
of scalding red fire in my eyes
of glistening knife in my hands
and that scared girl cowering in the dark corner of my heart.
But whose freedom and at what cost?
