Whole – for Prompt 23: Anais Nin quotes


Surrounded by sheeple, yet I feel all alone

I’ll risk Medusa’s wrath, I might be better as stone


I long for a connection, for a love that is real

it may well destroy me but at least I will feel


I’ll gladly drown in the onyx depths of your soul

forsaking oxygen for one taste, one chance to be whole

~Melanie Blackwell
