2. Pale Read Count : 55

The smoked cleared

    And the ambulances still sailed. 

A ghost drew near.

    If not, why was she so pale? 

Conversations carried us through the night

Which teased her potential second death.

Distance fended off immediate feelings of plight

Although I smelt it lingering on my breath. 


She left me speechless

    But paramedics never came. 

They never came for me

    And my world was never the same. 


If I put my shoes to use

Then maybe I could’ve saved our souls.

My heart, yearning for abuse,

Ate through my $100 soles.
