Locked in clouds of ice

Written by: Maryam shahbaz

Black little rivers cover the floor

Red Eyes dreaming in guilty galore

White little lies filled of meaningless décor

Overflowing the sink in tears from my diary

Locked out the world, but it leaks in slowly

Falling apart, drowning in my arms and knees

Dreading this day, this night,

a never ending series

Nauseated in anxiety

wrapped around my skin

cradling me closely

suffocating within

Black little streams

Tear through my eyes down my chin

Bright red eyes sore with worthless emotion

And these white little lies hold me high

but ice thin,

Eventually they’ll break and

This world will shatter in.
