NaPoWriMo Poem by You #19: Disintegrating by Sierra Caoili

Sarah and Jeff Boyle

Disintegrating

She reaches for the stars
but they pirouette into the cavernous sky.
Her fingertips linger,
before slowly,
sadly,
sorrowfully,
curling her fingers inward,
crescent shapes,
that remind her of the moon,
embedded in her skin.
The grass tickles her ankles,
and laughter emits from them as the wind stirs.
Coldness consumes her,
grips of ice encompass her elegant, pale, body,
that resemble the shining light of the moon,
as it agonizingly,
awfully,
atrociously,
lowers her into the earth,
where her dreams are corpses,
decomposing.

by Sierra Caoili, age 15
