scream into me.

the void

will drag you in.

there are friends on the outskirts,

flowers bordering tarmac.

you were always a flower,

a bright, effervescent glow.

you never saw it in yourself.

you never stopped to see your petals.

it’s seen in a memory now,

how sparkling you were

when you never saw it yourself.

no soul behind smiles and

no trust in your heart.

the void is black and crumbling

scorching on a hot day.

it gives you perspective

and helps you see your petals

the contrast so great.

nothing has changed except

the view.
