By the Window

By the window I sit,
in a chair the colour of piss.
Watching the leaves fall all around,
November rain a soothing sound.

By the window I sit,
with the sun streaming in.
Stained golden by the leaves,
breaking through the tallest trees.

By the window I sit,
an empty classroom at rest.
With the sunlight so warm,
by the window I fall asleep.

elemental

I see things that are untrue.
Burned into my eyelids, just for you.
you took my words away from me.
you left me bleeding in the sea.

I will rise from the waves,
carrying a hurricane.
I will rise from the earth,
bringing earthquakes to your door.

And I will rise through the sky!
bringing such light you will know
what it is to be blind.

And I will walk through the flames.
The world will never be the same.

palpitate

this will never go away,
i know with certainty.

when i see the way
your hair begins to curl
as it’s growing out.
the way you look,
i remember your smell.
the feeling of you in
my heart.
beside me.

my heart will always
beat for you.
my soul will always
shine for you.
i will always
feel for you.

these palpitations will
never leave me alone.
no matter how much i
want them to.

Hello Moon

Hello, Moon,
bright and blue.
Stars shine bright
just for you.

Hello, moonlight,
soft and kind,
to keep me company
this lonely night.

Hello, moonshine.
Sweet as bitter wine.
To the stars on my tongue,
I whisper of a dream
as I let sleep come.

opening

[PRESS PLAY]

there is no light in this
place where i reside.
my eyes go black and
there
is
only
condemnation.

can you imagine being devoid?
a soul like nothingness.

what allows you to imagine?
what allows you to wonder?

[PRESS REWIND]

once i had felt the light.
once i was the light.
now i am lost, eyeless.
if only i could unsee.
if only i could unspeak.

what to do when such
secrets blind you, silence you.

[FORWARD TO THE FALL]

i thought i was sunlight.
i thought i was kind.
now i understand
i understand.

nothing can be undone.
it can only be remade.
