Please do not let the disrespect find a home within you
Never think that by swallowing your tongue,
biting your lips, leaving your voice on the shelf
that so-called love will stay


Going up.

You want to get high
high into the old sky
so that this world
is just a tiny black smudge
in the corner of your eyes

You kidnap your lover
through promises
yse their body
until there is no love
left to be taken
so the dead weight
becomes a problem
so you throw it back
onto the world
