Written by Jacob Ibrag

Whisk the oxygen from my lungs, tear apart the

soul that makes me human. Drown my physical existence

and adopt a steady hand, you’ll only have one chance at this. If

I survive, I’ll take you away. You won’t remember my voice or the

brush of this warning. I’ll change your fate, ridding your name

from the book of breath as you’ll become a part of me.

  6. It’s like that isn’t it. I just laughed out loud as I read it. I swear love just rips us to shreds and finally kills us. It’s all temporary anyway.

  8. Whenever I read your words, while also hearing them run through my mind [today especially], I think of spirituality. I imagine the prompts you must be assembling to write what you write. I also enjoy looking back and forth between your prose and the images you couple them with. OK…I’ll just go ahead and spill all, it’s quite the ethereal experience. Thanks for sharing!!!
