&& she said

"Baby, I can't feel my heart beating…"

His eyes widened as her eyes dulled

Fingertips pressing at her womb

As the panic mauled his bones and

Shattered the manic moon into

Three sister splinters to

Carve her casket…

&& he whispers

"My (in)sanity is divine but fleeting…"

Her skin rots so gentle in(the) blistering sun

Curves flat against penetrating stone

As he rubs her cold.beautiful.numb

Tattering the rancid and forever-alone

Destiny line in her

Marble palm…

&& she cries

"Baby, just let me (so)tenderly die…"
