corner 02:19
try to find the right quip to get you through the day dry wit, intelligence, or just desperate to be liked i’m better with vitriol i’m at odds with the world but i’m feeling inspired so i’ll find a corner and wile away the hours though not idly this is an obstacle, but that’s all it is to me so expend your energy here while i plan my second life
eye 02:45
i’m left wondering why - did you leave, or did i? this is the change that breaks the back chaps the skin and irritates the eye did you leave or did i? it bends, it breaks, it falters deviates from its course and wanders a fleeting glance, a trip up the stairs it sneaks in and causes a ringing in the ears did you leave or did i? it’s always in the quick fix, half concocted plan the sure thing, a missed detail it always lets you down and i’m left wondering - did you leave or did i?
clear 04:14
a sharp intake of breath, it’s escaped you just take a minute and think about it this our misinterpreted pitch blurted out, regurgitated let’s take the minutes, don’t miss a thread what matters is the delivery not how we unpick it in the end it’s clear, isn’t it? a state left wanting and over exposed an all too familiar feeling meaning disassembled, unravelled, transposed it’s clear, isn’t it?
inertia 02:49
each day a new reason to plan an escape but these bones are getting weary and these meals won’t cook themselves an improbable state who could live life at that speed? inertia took over inert matrimony, an improbable fate take me by the throat take me by the hand lead me forward i am unwound
never 02:47
never felt, could not foresee being overpowered before determined sense of ignorance such a lack of understanding experience or strength not a swing, or a miss but an unexpected lack of force it’s not right to feel this, her experience every day it’s a constant transmission, an acrid taste of dismay held down, held back inspected, investigated, wilfully misunderstood surely we are all the victims and surely we are all responsible
age 02:56
approaching an age where we’ve come full circle could almost be thirty five, broken and bruised it was only a matter of time it was never inevitable, or somehow coherent it’s a temptation that’s almost too much to reach out, to claw it back to hope against hope it was impossible to imagine that it would ever go away it was only a matter of time before we could look closer and lines would appear it was never inevitable, or somehow coherent that we could look closer, and lines would appear
love 03:01
i’m in love with everything. can’t quite quantify, couldn’t possibly explain. it’s hard to hold back - to refrain. to bite down on my tongue - taste of iron again. that sixth sense, that indescribable taste. it gets underneath the skin. it invades, ingrains, it permeates. i’m made up of everyone i’ve met, who’s changed the way that i think. reach out, grab everything you can. hide it all now, i’m in love with everything.
