lofty golden goals

lay down to rest

to stay

after taken tolls

after time

after soot settled shame

nothing else remains

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

Frail Folds

by meaghanmerrifield

79683-7831058-7

silly self

involved

destructive

rests within walls that wind in

curves that roll

crumble where the body begins

folds wail as they wilt

frivolous and frail

words limp out of  lips

chewed

chapped

stale

I am left

to steep

in the vast sea

of my inadequacies

Monstrous Me

by meaghanmerrifield

medusa1

sun sucked skin

radiates red

under-toe

rusty rivers

intemperate

in a short lived sleep

slowly flow

lukewarm in a mellow must

head full of heavy hair

hisses

snaps

haughtily heaves

whips through wet sheets

revels

in riling the rowdy

the deceit
