fear and excitement
are twins
who love to switch places on us

I want to fall for someone
who will break for me
who will let their stains spill everywhere
who will allow their eyes to pour up a glass
of the beautiful mess
that they are

I wish I could’ve warned you
about how heavy they can get
how they’ll refuse to leave
and instead
unpack in every room
they will pile up to the point
where you won’t be able to lift yourself up

is to find a tool or two

less food on the menu
any escape route that’ll drain you
but you’ll soon learn that
being empty
weighs you down just like them
that’ll never stop trying
to devour you
