I lay hereSprawled over Under the cold ashen skyOn the dampness of the shore My broken wings Fanned out in a circleMy heartbeat Fainting in my hollow core Winds numbing and hurting My tips and toesWaiting to be swallowed aliveI can’t fight anymore The giant is galloping nowSeething tyranny in its eyesOur gaze meet for...
