Just some girl without much to do until the fall courses start up. You can call me Sam.
More importantly than anything I’m a writer, before I am a human.
I remember learning how to swim
Mostly because I learned how to drown first.
I knew the feeling of water being sucked into my lungs
And therefore I could better savor the feeling of air
And could track the oxygen running through my bloodstream with each inhale.
But as I got older I…
I like to think of the love we had
as something cancerous,
Because all the love that we shared
came from me
and its toxic nature infected everything.
So when the heart strings began to break,
brittle from the constant twang of cruel words,
it shouldn’t come as a surprise that both of our hearts were as black as tar.
