Overdose.

By Malice In Wonderland

i.
constellation bound
we found solace
star soaked
and bleeding
in muddy Mississippi

ii.
dripping from the trees
a pearlescent puddle
reborn of intention

iii.
washed ashore
we showed them
beauty
in asphyxiation

    Each word holds equal weight and meaning and each word feels like it is sworn to secrecy on a tale where truth is stranger than fiction. Compelling and much enjoyed!
