the little girl
took towel in
scrubbed away tear drops
rubbed away until nothing was left.
the little girl
rubbed away fog
collect on true window,
no one looked back into her eyes
and saw nothing
the little girl saw that there was
nothing left for her
and so she gave a little sigh,
and became one of the stars.
i hope that every evening, your
hands cradle a tired
face, that your legs find themselves warm and
that you have the freedom to
kiss those hands,
trace scars and forgive straying from the path,
rub shoulders and hold til it's all right.
that it's okay to feel this way,
it isn't a sin to breathe this way,
it's okay to Be
in this way.
i pray that you can love yourself at night.
day is coming and i am night, apocalypse, contained collapsing chaos candlelight. i am the shadows in the corners of your sleep paralysis plights and i am your hallucinations. i can't seem to find the root of it all. take me to the stars and leave me there so i can find some truth in the nothing. i am night, i am no one. i don't want to be afraid anymore and can you do that for me? i'll close my doors and crack open the windows and find the dust of my bones on the shards. take my hands and melt them into copper, bronze flower stems. cut my throat and pour the red clay into your palms and shape me a ***. place the flowers within and throw the whole mess out the window for me. maybe they'll be discovered by the darkness and the stars will come out in despair, delusion, delight. maybe one day we'll all disappear and no longer Be. maybe one day we'll figure out what it all means.
