3 - Unwanted

They cut me
down to size
a swirl of chocolate and mossy greens
swallowing me
shoving pushing dragging me down
until at last I sighed and gave in

Acres of fresh grass and slick
blood like oil
refreshing the plants and killing them
all at once
This is what your eyes do
refresh and kill and

They can't be resisted
But then again, I never fought all that hard
did I


  1. "a swirl of chocolate and mossy greens" - - a description of someone's eyes, yes? So good. I love that line.

    1. Yes, and thanks! Each week I'll be focusing on something different about a person - this week it's eyes :)
