By soul_versing


 you were me,
 and i,

a heart heavy
 full of painstaking
 piercing pains
 flowing through
 the chest

 an inhale 
to an interrupted

 the burning in the chest

 And then a swallow.
 But with this swallow
 comes the cold heart truth.

 You are not who you thought you were.

 you're just a product
 of what you were programmed for.

to be the machine.
 to function alongside
 other machines.

 moments of realization later.
 you find yourself
tearing down the machine.


 Now testify.

    I like the picture and the words expressed, which I think work well together. I found the picture to soften and focus the words more toward a hopeful direction than they might have, as the flowers are doing what they were designed for and with it they bring peace. Ciao, Steve Scholar
