i have forgotten what beauty sounds like.
it is as if the world has gone silent.
while there is this
love falling from me
the simple thing
i am trying to say
‘in loving you, i have found my way.’"

and i am sitting here, weeping wild flowers into your name wondering why love was never enough to lift me from despair.
you were a pleasant dream and a snowfall but I have been through avalanches and mudslides and nightmares that continue even after i open my eyes.
every moment is a dull throb with you but you know i have had electricity run through my body, i have felt myself on liquid fire, as if i was both the participant and actor during the Milgram experiments.
you don’t know. you don’t know how it feels to tattoo hurt onto your skin, to raze your emotions to the ground into words, to sob like a storm is trying to escape from your throat.
no. you are not the one.
you are clouds passing by on a sunny day and i am here, in the tempest, my heart breaking with the wind against the ocean surface.
sometimes suffering is a medicine and it heals me deeper than your love ever will. you have no intentions to reach deeper, to pull out the darkness i have rooted within me, entangled with my ribcage and esophagus and rooted into all the times i’ve cried asking what it means to have a mother or father.
i choke on love.
i want a revolution, an overthrow, and a long, long cry in your arms.
but you are an everyday and a peacetime
and so i will never be able to sit still with you,
not when every part of me is aching for tragedy.
