When missing something makes you too sad to want it
And you’d rather hate yourself than fix the problem
You’ve convinced yourself that you can’t fix the problem
It won’t last, but it’s a blast of ice ...
A commanding forte resounds
From the open maw of the baby grand
Yanking me back into the room
From which I had departed
In meandering contemplation of my place in the book
The end of a chapter?
Pomegranate juice running down her chin
Ebony eyelashes growing wet with tears
She has been deceived
Even as the bright, bittersweet tang
Plies her ruby-stained tongue with confusion, as
The nerves in my feet are blood-hot
And I don’t know why
Behind my forehead everything is dead
But the sky is crackling
And I don’t want to go to sleep, Even though I can feel myself falling, falling,...
I am ready to self-destruct
I welcome it
With open everything
I want to bathe in ice cream
And watch the sun rise at the end of long nights
That I stayed awake through for no good reason
I want to hid...
Got up early for class, and came straight back home
Having left you between my sheets
I had things to do, but I didn't want to
So I lay there and watched you sleep
You have freckles on your eyelids
