Shadows of yesterday

I’m writing in-between the lines,
my scars are in the margins,
I’ve made a fool of myself
in-front of myself.

My mind is swimming in recollections
refusing to reconcile with the refugees
of my past.
Wasteful, wanting
what you can’t grip between two fingers.

The pinch hurts my skin.

  2. Very much enjoyed this piece, but I’m a bit concerned about your byline. If my caffeinated hands are shaking too much to hit the keys is it still a creative outlet? And what about the Pinot Grigio? I need an excuse for my drinking as well 😛 .

    1. I usually end up writing in longhand if I’ve had too much caffeine. It can get quite difficult to read my writing the next day though xD
      Oh gosh I didn’t even think about the wine! There’s definitely wine involved too. 😛
