a collab with the devil

by Star   Feb 25, 2023

she listens as the night
keeps counting down her days,
sooner or later
the deep brown hair,
the crooked smile
and the misaligned eyes;

the fragments of her reflection will dissipate.

the red blemishes will lose color,
and her being
will hold hands with an angel
for the first time

or perhaps one last time.
