sips.

it's an unnameable , you're chasing shadows.
no one knows you're a writer with the doors shut.
no one touches the skin, or do they
what  is your name when they touch you?
you can't remember
the sky is jagged edges
and
the air is a bruise
you are new here
don't forget, repeat it like a prayer.
you use the words like a blanket when you can't sleep
it doesn't matter what they're telling you.
one more button
if you heart is racing it's only cause you didn't ask it for permission.
if you're on the table it's because you used your feet and legs to get up there.
it's because you did it.
be like a bruise and spread, i thought in my head,
get inside, shake me up, this is me asking for it without uttering a word.
