hum

I spent the first
two decades of my life
trying to guess the meaning of
“home”


I won’t spend the next chapter
trying to escape


wherever
whenever
whoever


I rain on into the refraction-after
into the shine that comes only when
the thunder’s washed everything deaf


I tarnish myself through
the kinds of situations I’m later told
I should have avoided


bruise me selfless
polish my exterior
with your diamond knives


I only get softer


pain breeds wakefulness
I dream through all shades of

daylight



wrote this a while ago. I am so numb right now. Need to remember how to live wildly and I really really just wanna ditch this place. escape.
