Three days
after you tore the moon
from your empty eyes
and threw it back,
there were more ghosts
than people
haunting the high school halls.

A permanent trail
of chaos
and frantic apologies
stained the floor
and ended with a pile of souls
heaped at your feet.

You made horror movie history,
headlines screaming
the boy who changed,
the wolf who cried--

and I,
dirt still blurring
the lifelines on my palms,
forgot how to be anything
but the girl
the madness started with.

Day 003 -- Making History

When you looked at me with deadpan eyes,
the words turned cold on my tongue.

I don't know why but I'm thinking of monster mash when I read this.

I don't think I've ever read a poem by you that didn't take my breath away. It's safe to say that I'm in love with your words. <3
