L'appel du vide

by Aegis   Jul 4, 2017


You are cedarwood and vanilla
sparsely thriving in my
garden of cancerous
memories.

I'm being driven to extinction,

and I relish the rapture.

    Judging comments: I freaking love this. I love that it can be taken so many different ways, but I see such hope here. The way I read this is this person, the vanilla and cedarwood, they are your fond memories, they're the goodness you hold in your life - and the talk of cancerous memories and being driven to extinction, I see this as a rebirth. You're grasping onto the good and choking out all the bad. Love love love this!
