delicate

incomprehensible brevity lessens not the sting of the verbalization

a breach
sun shines
willows weep
you tear
sunsets
wider
deeper heavier
stronger
rain drop
on the brow
of human convention

unified and bound
forward and agreed
i want it all
i want it
now

relinquish
confined
imprisoned in your whim
trust reliant
relishing the vulnerable
raw and bleeding and prone
to the principle of rationalization
wading in condemnation
sober in realization

in orbit
out of space
i’m sold out
nothing here
just slippage

and it was gone
it never existed
sins absolved

my perception of
your desire
manifested
a big fat cage
to lock me in.

and it was gone
it never existed
sins absolved

i gave you that power
but i took it back
cage dissolved

and it was gone
it never existed
sins absolved

eternal light shines on me.
