i saw you and the world went quiet.
i couldn’t hear the days i had cried myself to sleep. i couldn’t hear myself breathe and i didn’t know if i was alive, but my god, i heard you smile. take me down, kill me, please hold my hand. teach me what it is like to feel human again.
my hesitant fumbling smile, wiping itself off my face and copying down again, a never-ending algorithm of can i? it took me years to move my fingers to yours but the second i did, you dissipated into mist, you tore my heart out and licked your fingers, you disappeared
and for months, all i could hear was white noise white noise WHITE NOISE and you left me with the ocean howling and the roaring in my head is the only thing i can ever hear: who the fuck are you; what have you done?
