Code Purple: Day Six

Sister, I am with you 200%. I am impressed with your writing. I invite you to visit my blog, Idealisticrebel. Hugs,
Barbara

In Potentia.

You saw me
as a blank page
you could draw upon—
jagged lines of expectation.
Circles always closing.
Shadows drawn between us.
My face blurred
in charcoal.
Your hands smudged
across my throat.
You are so high
and I am falling
through every color
I once held.
There are threats
written all around me.
My hands cannot erase
where you have touched.
I can only paint over
and over them,
tracing each jagged line
as soft flesh taut over jutting bone.
