Poems

Light in the Attic

My eyes burn because you set my heart on fire

And even though this smoke is thick and putrid, I can see just how this will end

We get caught up in infernos, staring at them because they're bright and shiny-

just like the tears that were glistening down my face when you set your sights on me.

But even water gets stagnant and filthy and soon enough my glittering eyes turned into empty windows of a burning house-

chaotic but contained

and condemned.
