accidental witness

accidental witness

the lingering scent

of moist eucalyptus

my recollection fragrance

for this

haunted house residence

on phantom foundations

exit strategy sedation

our friendship’s fabric

star cross stitch

and the lingering scent

of formaldehyde citrus

so familiar and tragic

he left me

a jacket

burgundy velvet h&m

if he is me

then i am him

She spent her days dreaming up worlds where they fit together in visions; the if only, the never again, the someday. Those who knew her best would describe her as a creature with a clear and sometimes painful sense of herself; furious with ideas and convictions, to a point that she frightened love away with discernment and a relentless strength of character."
