but I’m not going to touch the ground.
I’m falling from the air,
but I’m not falling down.
Lucas de Alcantara aka Tolagunestro aka Lucas de Alcântara Borges Teixeira (Brazil) - Grim Poetry, 2011
There are the strange things,
in my head and in my heart,
always fighting for what is theirs.
I never feel true peace inside,
just constant fluctuations between
the highs and lows of life.
I find purpose and
I find disdain in this,
My words only hurting; only healing.
Can this really be a dance,
a precognition we all practice,
and relearn with new days?
Sleep wide awake while living the dream,
just to let an eclipse come over,
this perfect moment.
Pictures and memories,
shared or alone,
they mean something to the owners.
Let it hurt and let it heal;
the tides rise and fall
Rocking your soul to sleep.
