lacking the energy to completely fall
seems better to just be lonely
watch the stars shine by myself
greet the moon with
no one’s name on my tongue
red heat coiled in my belly
displays my lies for my mind to see
bottle up what i’m feeling each day
bury it out in the yard in the shade
rocking through the motions of normality
shiver every time i see
the contours of a certain face
that voice sends sparks
across my spine
but i swallow it down
and sometimes forget to breathe
forcing my eyes to turn away
while my heart shudders underneath my ribs
i dream of running
but know i’ll never get far
lock up all the tender parts
hope they’ll stay caged
before the fire bursts through my skin
burning me with need
