Sunken temple

His heart was a sunken temple
I tried to dive in
but my lungs were burning
for I tried to kiss his scars
and the poison within
drained me of my blood and air
so I became a mermaid,
a void soul wandering in vain.

— love can be destructive.




Catch my hand and don’t let go
for I will wake in the wilderness
always wondering why
you’re the beginning and the end,
the vulnerability and the strength,
the most beautiful dream and the worst,
the peace and the war,
the chaos hunting me.
You’re an echo in my thoughts
and I’m afraid to discover your secrets
for you could break my heart
and leave me sorrow…
but what if a glimpse
of your heart
could save me?
