Something That Hurts

(Probably could do with a self-harm trigger warning. Love love.)

something that hurts

Sook Samsara 28/9/17



Blanket Monster

We built a blanket monster in your bed sheets

Then we built a fire underneath

Fanned it into a conflagration with our mixed breath

And fell hungrily asleep,

As the house burnt down

You escaped

While I snored

And the walls turned to heat

And you ask me why I have scars?

From falling

At your feet.
