Take care

I pulled down my wall

with a caved in chest;

figured getting some fresh air

was probably best.

Hidden in a snow storm,

a snow globe of cold, cold air,

trapped in a glass bauble

while pretending not to care.

I smashed it like a wrecking ball.

I cracked it like ball to bat.

I hit a home run with my escape route,

yet returned,

returned and sat

to stop and stare at my own drowning;

to watch the hand grasp at empty air.

I stood up and held a hand out,

instinct kicks in

to fight

to care.

Moonlight.

I’ve got a secret

I can’t tell you.

You have secret

that expels you.

I’ve got a secret

that I tell you.

You hear my secret

and I fall through.

I’m in the darkness,

’cause I told you.

You’re in the darkness

and you hide you.

I’m in the darkness,

I reach for you.

You’re in the darkness,

I can’t find you.

In normal darkness

I would hold you.

In normal darkness

I would fuck you.

In normal moonlight

I would hold you.

In normal moonlight

I would love you.

In this new moonlight

the moon’s crushed you.

In this new moonlight,

the lights burn you.

In this new moonlight

the eyes hold you.

In this new moonlight

the court’s taught you.

In this new moonlight

it expels you.

In this new moonlight

the light sees you.

In this new moonlight

I truly see you.

In this new moonlight

I truly see you.

In this new moonlight

you are just you.

In this new moonlight

I still love you.

In this new moonlight

I still love you.
