Sentence after sentence pours into my windstorm
A broken song, littered limbs of poems
I wonder when I’ll finally sleep
Without words floating over my head
A sword’s edge I crave
Reaching out to slice my palms on
Some sweetness drips from the pain
A watered down truth
Veritas in my lips
would you send me butterflies tonight?
because i miss the doves.
there are days i forget your smile
i forget the way you said my name
i wish i hadn't cried the last time i saw you
hell is the static
hell is the dizziness
hell is the tightness in my throat
all i remember from faith is the begging
when did i first fall in love with you?
was it under the never ending skies in chicago?
in those cruel winter nights
where only you kept me warm.
or was it amidst the song of crickets and breeze?
in the summers of virginia
where even you would sing along.
some days it feels as if
the world is molasses around me
there's an invisible rope around my throat,
a cord of coarse thread,
and if it were to ever leave me
i think i'd lose my head.
