“I have little left in myself — I must have you. The world may laugh — may call me absurd, selfish — but it does not signify. My very soul demands you: it will be satisfied, or it will take deadly vengeance on its frame.”

Run

by meaghanmerrifield

I can’t tell if I’m running away from or toward myself

my pink legs

my blue heart

and my silly old head

still working out the start

He’s So Heavy

by meaghanmerrifield

his frantic fingers run all over me

my belly bubbles

my teeth shake

the heat of his hands

melt my mouth

all I want is to burn

and burn

and never let him out

Up High to Deep Down

green grass smothers fallen leaves

the willow smiles as the daisies weep

summer sun is meant to be sweet

yet cities grow and growl

roots rise and limbs wither

broken bottle screams sink into honey thick dreams

and the beginning crashes into the middle

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
