filthy… Toni L.A. Cross

scrubbing frantically

trying desperately

to get rid of this filth

it saturates me

penetrating my being

soaking

sudsing

trying to crawl

out of my own skin

nothing makes me

feel clean

or pure within

even my tears

seem to leave

black tracks

on the windows of my soul

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
