53 (who?)
will you meet me in the spaces
between our fingers

become tiny

indivisible, but one

(and all the smaller pieces
that don't matter)

trade electrons



a hollow note
crawls up
my throat

when you


twenty minutes to dawn
(i know this because we've been here before)
in this moment, and this thing of arms and arms entwined, called embrace
this moment on soft notsosoft ground sheets

this look

it's the same
and in this moment

this moment is again


and your voices
singing as the past
ricocheting off
ceilings and walls
that do not house me
anymore, i hear you
strum afar
voices lamenting
as one.

your mother


when i
it's like
but i
i can't
what did
can you
know that


you are farther away
when i am with you

than when we are
so far apart


i do not have a traditional clock
that could tick away the night
in even tones
to focus on
when i'm trying my hardest not to be awake


i only have digitalisations left
for metaphors


and i know
no matter what colours
what sounds
and what repetitions
i will never
be able
to run away
from your name


there is a fear
that smells
like hope


it's time the future
gave up


is it?

or is my mind
just trying
too hard


did i believe it was you
in those words

perhaps that wasn't
what mattered


the insides
of a flower
feels like
the need
to scream


if i was walking
and dropped these bus tickets
by accident

i wonder who would pick them up
(if at all)

i wonder what their shoes look like
how soft their fingers are

i wonder the thoughts they'd be thinking
when they read mine


i slipped once
grasped a hand
to stop from falling

easiest way to lose
a few years


i wasn't
and you knew it


the cold seems alive
when i open my eyes
and forget the warmth
is missing


sometimes there's a mask;
sometimes a ball
with whirlwind skirts
and shining black shoes
mist covered eyes
and the most ridiculous of costumes

seems to be mine
title = (truth)

[these are many little mini poems that were all written one after the other]

free-flow-fall thoughts

I really love this!
Even though these are obviously separate, they share a sort of wary hopeful tone that is golden! ^_^ I especially love
"when i
it's like
but i
i can't
what did
can you
know that

My brain made perfect sense of that. ^_^

I suppose they share a similar tone as they were written one after the other.

I'm actually quite glad that you liked that fragment - in my mind it was mimicking a telephone conversation with someone who eats your words up and says them back to you before you've even had the chance to say them.

Thank you :heart:

Ooooh, maybe it's because I've had so many conversations like that that I understood. ;) You're so welcome!
