1/30 poems

I want to try and update my blog for thirty days straight with some of my recent writing works, just to get myself back in the habit of writing before school starts. I have actually been writing a couple times a week but now I will try and post every day for 30 days something newer.

I am sinking down
the brown gray earth swallowing me
I touch the bare core
and feel myself spit up
a corpse of broken bones and a broken soul.

I am crawling out
of my self dug hole
my bones scrape against dry clay
leaving behind fragments for rememberance
small white pieces of what I worked
so hard to build.

I am kneeling
before the idol gods
praying for deliverance
hoping not to be answered
willing to sacrifice nothing
in return for everything.
