is there anything that lasts

more than the feeling

that nothing

ever will

i used to look at these

things as distant

far fetched parts

of realities

never felt

( nowadays,

i only seem to know

how to feel everything

all at once )

Voices

Voices continue to scream in silent rooms

As sanity is swept by brooms

reeking of remembrance

at ten to three am

( eyelids shut )

You

shttefan-280960.jpg

You let yourself in.

You

walked through doors

and floors

covered by a myriad of flaws

we never bothered to look at

,

You

placed your self

on internal shelves

I never wanted

to reach

,

You

barricaded your self

on levels which

were never warranted

,

You

collected dust

in bursts

dispersed

across the worst

outbursts

never previously rehearsed

,

You

went through phases

we called faces

in vases

always held

until they fell apart

;

But

you

Were never let in.

You

Never bothered to look at.

You

Never wanted to reach,

You

Were never warranted,

You

Never previously rehearsed,

You

Were always held.

Until

You fell apart.

I woke up to it

Threading itself

into threads

that barely held together

,

Staining the

stains

that only stayed

because they

could

barely fade away

,

Infringing itself

on the fringes

because they

could barely hold themselves together

;

Because I could barely hold myself together.
