After–Alibi by Isabella Lewis

Another lover collides with you.

Iridescent, hollow eyes swallow, swimming,

Slipping under the surface of a sleepless scene,

A haunting dream, leaking into reality.

Life as a luxury, a legacy engraved

In your morals, in your flesh,

Scolding tears of passionless rage,

And unravelled thoughts that linger all the same.
