A Lot Like Wilting by Aaishah Mayet

Aaishah Mayet | Aug 15th, 2020 | poetry | No Comments


Nights fade
One into the other
Like stacked dominoes
In the whispers
Revealing the nightmare
Of fears

Walking in the wasteland
Broken dreams
Like shrapnel
Blood stains
Of regret

On these nights
Is a lot like wilting
In waiting
For water
