Nicholas Pisculli // DEATH

I am human

I am a dog owner

I was a dog owner


She always got excited when she saw us.

always shaking her entire body

the emotion originating from her wagging tail

I’ll miss that


It hurts so deeply just to think about her

like a scratched record

Repeatedly playing the… noise

of nails across a chalkboard



If I didn’t care for the ones I loved

loved them with everything my heart had


I wouldn’t be human

but I am.
