hearing your voice

was like sucking on saltines

leaving my mouth dry and dusty

i turned to see if it was really you

and my stomach tried to leave without me

    When was this written? I need to check my magic notebook, cause i’ve got a sibling piece and I sense telepathy…

    Great imagery, little words, massive impact.
