breathing

falling

into

20. I love you even though I’ve forgotten what I’ve said before

my rules are yours and the gods’ now, the hearts and their hands are printed on the walls

now yours are tucked inside the corner

secretly hoping to be opened, to be noticed

in this abandoned tree house you never did bulid yourself,

surrounded by a grove of trees and grass

I said you

never saw the sky

so blue

so blue

so blue.
