skin


my face

is disintegrating

dissolving

into nothingness

underneath

the old skin

some strange land

untraveled

that feels

like a revelation

the heart stops

suspends the senses

in awareness

that burns

through distraction

clothes me in ashes

forgotten and forgetting

everything is still

until I am ready to live again
