calendar pt I

(january)

an ex was born this month, a mistake that led to two perfectly carved diamonds

frozen
broken
huddled in a ball
ripped and torn
spikes of ice
ragged wounds
crimson ice

(february)

my father was born this month, flawed and brilliant, my hero despite my own actions

shortness of breath
wheezing
spots in my vision
drowning
on dry land
choking
suffocating

(march)

meaningless to me, asphyxiating on the pointlessness of it all, thirty one days wasted away

the white rabbit
pocket watch in paw
teasing me
trying to get me
to follow
deeper and deeper down
but i am afraid

(april)

in like a lion out like a lamb, the first lamb i loved was born as the month faded away

doom
dire dread
dissension driven deep
destined
denied
draped
in derision
