don't change your flavour
so that other people can eat you up.
they're hungry like a wolf
The gaps between her fingers;
That was where he wanted to be.
The spaces she didn't realise could be filled.
where did you come from,
you mystical beings?
who gave you permission
to attend the biggest party
that is the universe?
the stars aren't twinkling
heaven looks better from a distance
she was carved from the inside
a hollow willow full of heavy liquid
which seeped through her bones
and blurred the world.
sometimes you've got to let the air touch the bottom of your lungs.
let it plunge to the depths and very fibres of your being.
then you will know what it truly means to live.
