paw 03:45
still have the imprint of a paw on my chest the fur ingrained in fibers a clarifying stillness a security in warmth a phantom limb that asks for nothing your paw on my chest is all I have in mind upon return, a fragile life a phantom limb that asks for nothing but for a place to call home
sacharrine 03:17
miles of man made prisons, measured as commodity wrapped in the illusion of once removed staring at an object, exposing the blame saccharine, time and time again a sudden surge of feeling, a peak inside our failures so what is it all for? filling in boxes and proving our worth? is compassion such a chore? is that smoke creeping in under the door? ignore it, stamp it out gasp for air, panic and pass out
downpour 02:44
it’s in the quiet moment in the curving of an arm in the whisper in the dead of night it’s in the fingers of a palm there’s a bruise, an unpleasant sight a shining flaw and it’s burning bright it’s a stretch, an effort the sinews bulge under the skin the fruit turns sour as it passes the lips the sugar dissipates to reveal a sour fix bottled up and set to burst a disappointing and unrelenting downpour
lung 04:12
can’t reach inside and hold on to that an abstract feeling indifferent and always slightly off track it slips between your fingers that blockage in your lung here comes the feeble excuse the concession and the step down to imagine this once felt indispensable can’t fathom the weight on your shoulders risking your ego, a terrifying feat it slips between your fingers that blockage in your lung
glue 03:17
i fret that every moment will escape my grasp that the present will evaporate and disappear into the past familiarity free of contempt there’s an understanding that comes from a life together it means i owe all the happiness in my life to you each time a part of me breaks off you’re there holding the glue
