Poem and Artwork by Kaitlyn Lafferty


reverb through me

remind me of my uselessness

lay simmered truth

in shades of blue

on dry corners of my mouth

watch me explode

with bright yellow

the color of

a dying sun

let me ruin

let me forget

let me close

you were right

to question my intentions

question a murmur

bleeding through

a sorrowful frame

craving distraction

and fleeting meaning

in crossed connection points
