Move Me by Phoenix McAndrew

Cushioned by gravel

dizzy from crashing




Black coal under my eyes

the stars in them

I stole from the sky.


Split skin

trickling blood

meets rain on pavements

dances into gutters.

silhouettes blurred

scream to move me.

  1. I hate to use such a moronic word but your writing has matured from the drunken stuff we used to do in the attic that boggled Dnos brain. Beautifully disturbing imagery. Can i clap along at home?
