there's something about the voice
how it trickles
like warm honey

soft and sticky

sweetness fading as memory
forgotten laughter

the way a word is said
and then unsaid
eaten up again
like cold toast

with honey
remnants
of another drone's
home
say i forget it
say i forget it all

then what?



(maybe you don't know either, maybe that's the point)

I was so excited to see your name in my inbox again <3 :)
This is lovely, but also kind of sad :(

I never expected to see from you new as I was told to expect that you'd never return.

And I thought that you could be my secret indulgence to look upon your words like we look at the stars, perpetuating thought and weaving emotions as our sould move cislunar towards the unfathomable.

Thank you.

Awesome piece, its really dreamy. Its style echoes the metaphors within it... if that even makes sense lol.

I really like it, ure work has a tendency to take me away.

Glad to see something from you again.

It's the comments that grab me and make me re-read this again. And then again.

Thank you for making it ok to not have fucking clue about what happens next, or what happens after what if.

I thought about you today, reading old poems I wrote for you.

I have missed your words.
They smell like old perfume and cinnamon
and electric currents.
