Third degree

You treat me like frostbite
But
I will burn you to your core
Layer through layer
To your innermost
Leaving you
Charred
Numb
Raw

Trust

I feel defeated. I have been slaughtered in a war I was unaware was coming. I can see myself being forced wide open by something much more powerful than me. My insides spill red juices and fear pours out and kisses my skin like a razor blade. Cold wind stings my eyes saying, “Close your eyes, you’ll be okay.” I give in to the icy caress of winds hands, shut my eyes to the world…

and I fall.
