The Reasons Were Petrified
Author: Mental


visions red
say you're dead
sweating profusely
in my head.
dreams envisioned
through an emotional window pane
my soul is imprisoned
roofless and exposed to your rain.
all reasons were petrified
imprinted clearly on my mind.
i thought you were my allied
but you faked me fine.
full of night
thick moments cover
her touch that hit my height
for that moment made her my lover.
