Vapors

Balance among the storm clouds

Walk along the seams

Wander through the silhouettes,

Watch water turn to steam.

I’ll follow you up there, feelings liquid in my mouth,

Knowing, full well, that they’ll never let me out.

Wings

Would you love me if I disappeared?

The road is long and far from here

For there are places I must know

And though it is not my choice to walk alone

I will try to do so courageously.

Wandering through cobbled streets,

Laying to bed my suffering

Right up until it’s too much to bear.

I know I’ll only see your face everywhere

Walking behind me

Missing beside me

Brace my heart to face those fears

Cannot rely on someone who is not here. 

Breaking periodically throughout the day

Standing there with nothing to say

Nothing to do,

Nothing to do.

Without you, how could I go on?

Somehow I manage, walking along. 

Strangled bird’s song moves passed my lips

Standing on a precipice, I wonder,

Can a bird whose wings are lost truly fly?

Do not ask me, as I still have mine,

They’re only broken, now.
