Where death means birth


Two deep breaths, in out in out and then I decide that I am strong enough to do this. I step inside, this room used to be mothers. Now Miri sleeps on the floor her heels once walked on. Quiet and peacefully she sleeps. Like a fucking zombie.

I havent slept since she arrived. Nor had I gotten any sleep before that either. I simply cant. Bein unconscious doesn't count.
When she sleeps I walk the endless hallways, I read books Ive read ten times before. I let my tears fall in to them. Bury my emotions in Karenina, 1984, Lolita..

Gather some courage, swallow some left over wine, I read another page in mothers book. Black covers, yellow pages and horrible grammar. Hate. She tells me further about Louis and how he is a burden she must carry. I suddenly feel last nights dinner re entering my mouth. Let it out in the kitchen sink. Last nights wine paint my snow white chin red. Dark red. Like coagulated blood.

Outfit
Lace knickers Agent provocateur
Cashmere blouse Jil Sander. Mothers old one.
I have never felt closer to her.

the lipstick is good.
but the wine is better.

your comments make my heart feel better.
Oh, and you asked about my hair (awhile ago I know)

but its dyed blue at the ends. kind of like splattered paint.

it adds the illusion I'm less stable then I let on.

Stunning. I think if I met you, I would be annihilated by some force.
