Flames Against My Skin (A Poetry)

when the flames cover my skin,
i swim to the ocean,
then back to the shore
before i remember
i have left my soul behind.
standing stripped in the eyes
of the afternoon’s glazed touch,
i breathe my own failure
and cling to the last piece of hope i have.
look at me,
i am broken;
stitches by needles
promising to split, again.
watch me kiss each one of them
as i whisper my own goodbye
to all the fallen memories
we have created.

WORD COUNT: 84
