morning explodes in my chest and 
i have long since forgotten this
scent of soothing madness 
like warm kicks to the mouth
i awaken on the foot of my bed
hung upside-down in my steel cocoon
i do nothing like steer winds 
or weave little stories 
instead i dream of threadbare wings
there is no butterfly at the end of
my life
no escaping this blistering summer
skies slip through my fingers
is letting go my sin? 
i want the clouds to sing to me
wailing angels strangling their silky harps
blue-blooded-bruised-bone
my nightmares collapsing into my 
days
aosora aosora aosora 
and i do not sleep anymore

 

hello kids
