My eyes are filled with coal

My lungs, are violent,

The morning lightning lights my eyes

I can’t find the words

“Breath” and “breathe” are things I can’t write anymore

You sit and watch the world slip through time like sand washed away

Is it all over now?

Oh, let me follow you down

This numbness won’t last

Don’t tell me this too shall pass

Don’t tell me

Better days are ahead

They released too too much at once

Now we all are numb

Do you even feel the hunger?

Do you know what you crave?

Or do we pack ourselves with light

Taking from eachother

To fill this emptiness

You know we all are blown through

Shipwrecked

We find eachother

——

The world is burning behind you, girl…

Keep your eyes on me

I’ll dance with you in the street

——

What if these days don’t change?

What will you do?

Will we adapt?

Even the tightest grip slips

The biggest hearts break

Can you start all new?

——

We lack subtlety…

Pack ourselves with light

We’ve all been blown through

We try

To make ourselves feel real

We try to make ourselves feel

——

Impressions,love…

I stand there watching her

I drink from her cup

She smiles

Her brown eyes

Remind me of fall

“Experiences” she says

I kiss her forehead

I’ll take a lifelong impression over 100 experiences any day….I whisper

She holds her breath

I feel a little bit of light leave me

Maybe we can remake the world

Maybe we can love after all

Silent Film Actress Marie Doro, 1902.
