Falling into Everything, Falling into Nothing.


Smeared with the silver of stars

awash with the sparkle of the sunlit sea-

I will wait, have been waiting,

I need this like I need to breathe.

set me on fire

and watch me burn.

for nothing dies

quite like i do.

Like the flame of a candle

I flicker, distorting my picture,

the taste of rain falling like soft sugar-

is only the icing on top of the cake.

flowing nowhere

feeling empty.

for nothing dies

quite like i do.

Wishing with only a faint heart

filtering in and out of existence-

me; alone with paper strewn across the table

and your name written in pen all over my body.

i reach halfway, fall to the floor-

for nothing dies quite like i do.
