Relaxing the Bones of Midnight

I am nothing more

then a shallow girl

letting my curly hair run wild

beneath my eyes


I pretend that I knew you;

though really I thought that I did.

I'm just trying to find my way tonight

trying to tare away from my past

like a bloody scrap that wont heal deeper then the bone.

I curled my fingers

around the April fresh

binding of your face

and wished that I knew you better.


then the mask that you put on tonight

to hide whatever secret you held.

I was

one step away

from my way home

when I stopped and thought

"I was free tonight!"
