Shamefulness is unnecessary. I’m begging belligerently for flight, the wings to carry me home. Choking on the carbon, missing the fresh breath to fill my lungs and cypher all these bad thoughts into the good that sustain me. Borrow a pocket and hold me in your hands like the glowing and growing vengeance in my heart. Believe in the solace that is relentless in its protection.
It started raining last, while I slept. Imagine the electricity between my lips, not shy of the spark; my nape blushing with goosebumps. Breathe close into my neck, let your nose graze my collarbone when I pull you close.
I said it was hard to describe, that I’m failing to find the words. You said it’s all ineffable, that it’s not everything. Not even close.
