I haven't been sleeping,
I have but I pretend or fake it till
I actually fall asleep and forgotten about how I ended up
with bruises in my dreams...
#number3 how I feel about the sky
is inaccurate ...
If it's not blue, it's grey
and if you can feel
both at the same time
then my blisters are showing ...
You used to be my ritual,
now I flick through
myself, like you would.
So callously, aggressively
as though I am meaningless
to your so meaningful existence.
I am entering the horizon
filled with the unfamiliar path
and it blooms for me
and I'll settle with whatever
that makes me feel like something again.
