Frozen Forever

written by: devereaux frazier



I’m sorry
He might’ve said
For whatever
I didn’t do
Time never began
Never ended
You left me winded
Desperate for the beginning
Of a new ending
Stuck on your presence
Careless and free
You broke down old walls
Parasitic, you captured me
And I want to die
Bleed out with lungs bursting
Full of fluid and folly
As long as I’m with you
I would go all the way
Any border, name it
Any island, I’d claim it
But you never gave me
The chance
With a gunshot
Crochet drops to the floor
Frozen gasp left etched
