Open eyes see nothing
Life fails her everyday
Every moment is filled with regret
She closes her eyes and sees peace
The stars beneath her skin
still into dark corners
but somehow it asphyxiates
grappling between memories
With her days spent in despair
her eyes gazing out
with a wretched soul,
she sits still with only a sigh to spare
Pieces of three different poems, by each of us, edited together to create one.
This look was inspired by the photography of Lara Jade - who is a freakin' genius - we only recently discovered her because of someone we know, let's call her JM. If you go on Book II - second photograph, of her portfolio on her website, you will see the resemblance - after that it kind of took it's own life and this is what we have.
The title of this post is the title of A's blog, it seemed fitting for this post so we used it.
