fear.

we are destined

to burn

and that

turns us

to ash

scattered

on graves

the wind is fast

and the ache is sour

in the air.

the cars are rushing by

and there’s a quiet hope

that they are all

headed somewhere.

it is all so

much.

and so little.

all at once.

and

it will take a while.

to let go.

of this all.

but I am starting.

dark

amongst stories

of dark worlds.

and fallen angels.

and scars. that never heal.

there are shades

of light. and stars

shining bright.

waiting for you

to come home

rain

it was 3 am.

some sampha was playing.

and

the earth was still.

and

the rain was dim.

and

every so often

there was nothing that mattered

as much

as

letting it fall

drizzle

it was one of those days

that began with the drizzle

of the sky

half past

the turn of the morning.

with clocks that run.

and soles that chase.

and days that stop.

and souls that ask

what are we running to
