whenever my mouth gets tired
words bend like vibrant electric paintings
that shock you at your fingertips.
i peel the feelings from my brain
peel my mind like a bittersweet orange!
isn’t this gorgeous!
you get to see me at my very lowest point
crawling in the soil of the earth with my vulnerability, a girl that is a snake.
naked in the painter’s eye and a poet’s dream.
soft baby in the eyes of some, but a devil in others.
lately i feel so confined in my body
had lies birth a universe in the home
of my ribcage
teeth got sticky from sugary tropical juice pouches like summer
lately i feel like i don’t know why we exist
but i let you linger inside me like my intestines
i used to wonder why i couldn’t live on the moon and drink fresh azure waters from its craters.
i used to wonder why my soul never got intertwined with another
and why i’m always dreaming of a boy whom i call apollo and that i have a loving family with him
i’m such a fool to think i would get an answer!
i turn to the cards of the universe but none of them satisfy my curiosity
but hey brain! sky! universe! i have a question!
why am i the one falling apart?
