you are not the first to wear
the same beckoning, calling skin
your fine edges annulling my roots,
       and i don’t think you were the first to
Kill.

    Kill what once was
    a ticking pocket watch, an echo
    heard only by one
    now ticking for fallen ears.

It does hurt to see things die,
but there is a certain satisfaction
In having washed hands
everything is painful when everything is at stake

This has a great impact. Very powerful in its brevity.

Congratulations from CRLiterature on your Daily Deviation!  We are holding a chat event in CRLiterature on Saturday, July 7 from 11am-1pm Pacific Time to discuss June's batch of Literature DDs and we hope you will join us.  Please let me know whether you will be able to attend so that we can plan accordingly; because there is not time to discuss all of the month's Literature DDs, we prioritize those whose authors are able to be present for the discussion.  We encourage you to help spread the word among your watchers as well!

If you are in Eastern Standard Time, the eastern United States, that's actually 2pm - three hours later than Pacific Time.

I like it a lot. I wish it was longer. See it fall deeper into dark thoughts.

thank you! personally i feel like the last stanza is so much better and so disjointed from the rest of the piece, but i couldnt think of any way to improve the flow. i wonder if you can see that?
dont want more of this. its tuff dude

It felt more like you just felt the need to end it. A few more verses would even it out but it's hard to go back and add things in. I tend to go with a bit of a first-draft policy on poems.
