"then came you"
By Makenna Kovacs
the silence is deafening,
the darkness is blinding,
the weight of your body is numbing.
i want to run into my mamas arms,
to let go of the pain i've bottled inside.
i sleep with a nightlight,
doors wide open,
afraid of the loneliness that is life.
my head is reeling,
i'm so done feeling,
but nobody sees what's inside my head.
but i'm a snake shedding my skin that was once touched by you.
