    Snapshots linger over my head
    Torn up tears hang over my bed
    Smiling at the little things that he said
    And frowning at the feelings instead

    Galleries fill with paper and silt
    Paintings and memories sit with a tilt
    Call it all crazy, it’s strategically built
    This time it might be meant to wilt

    [ Curse ]
    I used to run into your arms
    With eager feet full of spring
    But now I’m just a leftover charm
    You wear me like a broken wing

    We used to be in brand news
    Jumping careless into trust
    But now we always have the blues
    We keep hold of our cursed dust.

    [ Balloon ]
    Bright colors fill my emotions
    Hiding in hot air and willing to burst
    Pulling me further from the ground
    And filling my heart with unspeakable thirst.

    I’m slipping out of grasp
    Tearing holes in outer space
    I’m back by a tiny string
    Holding steady in one place.

    Fear is a friend, when you’ve lasted too far
    Fear is a foe, when you can’t cross the star.

    Circles and diagrams edge over spaces
    She floats past silent doors, into smaller colder places
    Listening loudly to the softness of thought
    As little ants crawl cowardly, further than they sought.

    Candy and sugar coated words
    Dissolve on the tip of my tongue
    I tuck them away with flirtatious tempt
    Suffocate inside a heart shaped bag.

  • SayLiz commented on the post, orbit 2 years, 5 months ago

    Clambering around a square
    Below wooden fingertips and
    Above concrete stairwells
    I aim to meet you
    But my orbit falls too short

    Seconds too fast

    Snap. You’re trapped inside the flash.
    Here, you can last forever
    As you are right now.

    But will it really be more time to live
    Or to endure?

    Sometimes I can’t remember.

  • SayLiz commented on the post, sacred 2 years, 5 months ago

    We used to be unimaginable heartache
    Flailing over heels
    Chasing all our dreams at stake
    And unafraid to feel

    But now we’re like a sacred sight
    Pulled down to pieces small
    We knew we’d never last in […]

    Painted bodies against the trees
    Flowing fluent through the breeze

    Touched each other with loving ease
    Left the waves beside the seas

    Obeyed the leader in spite of strife
    Chanting in ears “It’s not life

    It’s living.”

    The Fat Tuesday lights
    Hiding behind their own colors
    The escape against

    Convention

    The purple and orange
    Beaded necklines covering veins
    The flashy dance

    Celebration

    Oddities persist, like the drums behind a tune. Carrying on, they carry deeper, even when the song has ceased.Everything I do, is at odds with my odds. How did I get so messy? Why can’t things just stay tidy, the way everything in my bedroom has a place of its own. Except him. Except me.

    circle small, sunny photograph, hoola in the park, I remember the children playing, and the experts at concerts. Intricate movement into an art. with vast colors and brights.
