the voices said
there's nothing like
waking up deep into the night
and not hearing any voices

and I believed them

People like you die young, she said
You don't drink, don't
do drugs, eat healthy, rarely
go out, rarely meet new girls

But you keep on writing, boy, you
keep on writing
and that's enough to outweigh
all the above

You'll see

Oh, infinitely beautiful girl
you are not alone

she wrote with
scarlet lipstick on her mirror

But words alone
don't
change hearts

and she was infinitely
unhappy

cursed

doomed

All the boys and men
said yes
to her

but her brother still
said no

Controlled.
Precise.
Intentional.

There's chaos in my
carefully constructed circle.

Unsure how long
composure can be held

desiring
nothing
more

than
to scream

and
beg
for
help

I smoked to fill my lungs
to **** the flowers that grew there
the ones you planted last december

Juan Ramón Jiménez
Y yo me iré. Y se quedarán los pájaros cantando.
Y se quedará mi huerto con su verde árbol,
y con su pozo blanco.

Todas las tardes el cielo será azul y plácido,
y tocarán, como esta tarde están tocando,
las esquilas del campanario.

Se morirán aquellos que me amaron
y el pueblo se hará nuevo cada año;
y lejos del bullicio distinto, sordo, raro
del domingo cerrado,
del coche de las cinco, de las barcas del baño,
en el rincón oculto de mi huerto encalado,
entre la flor, mi espíritu errará callando.

Y yo me iré, y seré otro, sin hogar, sin árbol
verde, sin pozo blanco,
sin cielo azul y plácido...
Y se quedarán los pájaros cantando.

so tell me
when the lights burn low and the music fades
do you still like who you’ve become?
