Crush


A grey sky breaks

silver, scratches pink wounds

to bleed over the ocean side

of the rock that holds you

to her. Crash and break of words,

chattering bubbles that trickle

back into the crevice

of her deep devotion, her

platonic love.

  4. I loved this! The double meaning of your title... the colors and words like "scratches" and "chattering bubbles that trickle back" just elicit such imagery. I can't explain it right (need a break from this computer screen!) but it was wonderful.

  5. Love how you roped in all of the colors and the chattering bubbles into something as sad as unrequited love, Kymm. Very unique answer.

    1. Thanks for the love, Nate! With these micros, it's often hard to know where you'll end up, isn't it?

  6. Such beautiful images. Love 'chattering bubbles that trickle'. I can see someone clinging to the rock as the sea crashes against them and yet I feel this so well captures the ending of a relationship too.

  7. You paint such a lovely seen! The metaphor is so strong. I almost find it difficult to discern from the picture you painted.
