Starting at the finish lineThe hum of my own heart terrorizes me, too serene for my own good. I've decided I'm done existing for now, yet my heart still shakes. I can feel it impending.Starting at the finish line by ~chelseaeh
Judgement Day is every day.
I am betrayed once again by this deceiving body.
Your turn. I want to judge you. I want to criticize and over analyze your every flaw. I want to break you down, body and soul, until you are......
Then, when I'm done, when I've consumed everything about you, I want to disgorge you and leave you to thrash about.
Just like you did to me.
I want to judge you.
You are another. You want to study me. You know how to ponder my outline, but you want to reflect upon the cuts, the wounds, the words, the damage that has already been dealt. I'll consider it. Revisit the idea that is sealed tightly in the front of my brain many times. Time expires as I bleed it out, wasting away. One more nick....One more cut.
Can I study you? Would you let me?
Insanity is under the surface. It crawls under my skin...creep,

Marina stared out the window at the bleak winter landscape, her deep blue eyes taking in the pure white scenery. The snow continued to fall steadily in fat, white flakes, making it difficult to see outdoors. She stirred restlessly. Luke was not up yet like the rest of the household and he had five house calls to make that day. She couldn't wait to accompany him on his adventures.
Finally, she decided to go into the kitchen and to make herself some breakfast. Their options were slim, considering that they had to no money to go to the market, much less anything to bargain. However, everyone in the household did their share and that at least got them by.
Marina turned to the old wood stove in the far corner of the kitchen. She piled in a few big, fat logs from the area next to the stove. She briefly glanced around to make sure no one was watching and then grinned. Her timing couldn't have been better.
