Sand

Heart ricocheting for a way out
Left right front back
Scrambling to escape
Fingers gripping the coiling serpent
That slowly wrapped itself around me.
Fool who took the embrace with love
Face white with flooding rivers of inflamed veins
My vision blurs as my lungs yelp in fear, helpless
I think of you
Your slender caramel skin and dark wavy hair
I think of you
When I kissed you and your smile
I think of you
When I embraced you with my arms
But as I hold you, you begin to leave
Escaping right between my fingers
Sand
The closer I hold you the faster you
disintegrate
into the wind
Until I am left
alone
holding myself
I realize I am alone
And I stop
My ventricles erupt all my anguish
And I die
Alone
