A Blue So Dark


On the brink of insanity

I pull you down with me

A smile and nod

That says I’m OK

A few wires crossed

You know I’m about to break.

I’m drowning in a cup-o-crazy

I invite you to come save me

With a show of my pearly whites

To ensure your trust

You flush them down

Yes, the pills are gone.

Your eyes contain concern

I shrug them off,

You silly girl

Your mother is not lost.

Drowning into a puddle

A blue so dark.

I take your hand

And submerge you with me .


Inspired by a novel by Holly Schindler

      OMG!! (and yes I really have been repeating that out loud) I never once in a million years thought you’d see this 😀 It is such an honor, thank you!
