pull out the knife, from where you slid it in my side. Let the blood, rich and rosy, drench your hands, a reminder, a memento to the times we passed untainted, warm in the sun. Avert your eyes, from my prostrate pain, out of sight, you can raise your head, pretending the role you played didn’t bring me down.
two tickets to barcelona sants I told you I missed my flight
my bus broke down halfway into London and tonight i'm crashing on someone's boyfriend's couch it's a quarter to three and all I hear is arctic monkeys inside a funeral hall where I wore black lace like an unburnt witch and resurrection like a diamond ring and I feasted on the thought of how close I was to being whole again
because you thought I'd die without you but life is more than just a memory of you
if you show me your soul hidden deep inside I will admire it. show me the worst parts, the broken pieces... so I will know where to start. show me the most damaged parts and I will show you they are still lovable, unique in all the world unduplacated and more valuable than gold.
Most every person is a finger print, unduplicated, the unexplained magic of a bond seemingly to the soal burns deep into a mind and generates memories and feelings that never subside
For a moment just consider As your sinews stretch and muscles strain As your bones shift and crack
Consider your body Watch it and think Skin stretched over flesh and tissue Marked and scarred Pale or tan or dark
Picture it Look over it This body of yours Make it in your head Your mind Then open your eyes to observe
Consider your brain floating in liquid wrapped in skull and sending tiny electrical charges all around your body telling it what to do Consider your feet, calloused or soft, holding you up (or maybe not) Consider your hands, rough or delicate or both, helping you (or maybe not) Consider your arms and legs (or maybe not) Consider your stomach
Consider your heart
Consider for a moment, whatever state you are in Whoever- wherever
Consider your body Imagine it unbroken Now look
Imagine your body - not unbroken, certainly - but whole
It shouldn't take that much effort
It's right there, after all
Your body may have been broken. But that does not mean it cannot heal.
