Come back.

FEATURED IMAGE: THE RETURN TO THE ISLAND by THOBIAS MALMBERG

The ground grows cold beneath bare feet.
It could have been summer but I chose otherwise.

The snow melts against warm skin.
And I’m screaming inside this bubble.

Come back to me.

It is a vivid emotion,
A black scar that floats in space,
Dead molecules surround my being.

Come back.

Why should I surrender?
You never gave my body up,
It is lying limp in your arms
Like a puppet, rid of its strings.

Come.
Back.

It’s not the time of day,
It isn’t the weapon,
It isn’t the words sprinting out of your mouth.

It is the sign that I never got to show.
It is the infamous font on the paper
that tells you of my pain.

Come back to me.

  1. I spent a lot of time reading your work and it all has a very (to borrow Indigo's phrase)”beautifully haunting” quality to it. Throughout everything I read, I kept thinking ”come back” and was curious to see what you would do with this. You wrote a lovely piece. Nice job!
