To go with the theme, I have tried to write a poem. Very different for me. Adding to the theme, I have submitted it too late to be judged.

Did you also have dreams of alchemy?
I can tell you in mine it was perfect.
That when we gave
we got
And if I bled
I could comfort myself with what was to come.

Did you also have logic replace them?
I can tell you I still feel the numbness.
That cold so loud
so long
And if I grew
I could cloak most myself with what youth was left.

Now you pull my cover off with each step away.
Leave me enough so that I can say this goodbye
With a kiss on your cheek
And a smile on my lips
A promise on my life
And a slash on my chest.
