A Poem by Maili Jane Kee

Your affection was like a poison

Sweet at the tongue

While burning any fiber

Left in my being.


I lay staring at the wall

Longing for humanity

I once had.

As your words encase me

Fight me, break me, bend me

Change the ways of my mind

Staining new colors into my lips

Drowning my personality in control.


I find myself staring at the window

Reality unable to find me

Anxious to feel the slightest emotion

Powerless to your venom

As all over I feel I die for you…
