attachment to the speed of time

in those moments when you feel most uncomfortable-

the awkward silences
the moments in between
your attachment to the speed of time

deflect from patching up segments of your life, following a deception that perhaps the human experience is better understood as one perfectly piece

and instead,

let yourself dissolve in the discomfort that is floating from one journey to another
sitting in between
soaking in nothing

because sometimes it is those gaps—times in between, moments unknown—that allow light, the most beautiful light, to shine through the spaces where it would otherwise be trapped if there were no breaks-  no gaps. let the discomfort breath and evolve itself. dissolve in its beauty. see the light. don’t understand or conclude. be uncomfortable because nothing beautiful ever came from comfort.

addicted to the chaos,
smooth roads were never stimulating for us
we woke up begging for a challenge
exhausted, we kept searching for more

destruction is what we do best
not just today, but every day,
we feel like destroying something beautiful
paralyzed, we keep moving forward

blind to the bone

blind to the bone,
i saw nothing but the pretty pattern of the pores on your back
white sheets, heat waves, bodies melt aside
you’re hot to the touch but i’m not afraid

you said you know my kind
you know exactly how we are
you said people such as i jump clouds and are starry eyed
and that we’re your favorite kind

riding on the rhythm


the best things about being alone are

not having to share the leftovers
sleeping on whichever side of the bed i want
riding on the rhythm of my thoughts, untouched

but then i think about you

and how the worst thing about being alone is
that you’re alone, too.
