The ShiftI was freezing.
The coldness crawled like tiny spiders on my skin as nausea settled into my empty stomach. My bones ached as if any minute now they could break, and reshape into something entirely different.
I spoke too soon.
I doubled over in searing pain as my spine cracked and curled itself into an all too familiar shape. My arms and legs twisted in ways they shouldn't. I cried out as the bent, broke, reformed themselves.
My arms were no longer arms.
My legs no longer legs.
My hands were no longer hands.
My feet no longer feet.
My face ached as it molded into its new but familiar form. My skin transformed itself into my new coat of fur for the oncoming winter months.
I was freed from the agonizing pain of the shift.
And I darted off into the woods, away from my now unfamiliar surroundings.
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
