If it was important, they would have said stat.
If that person doesn’t need a heart tracing, they probably didn’t make it.
I don’t really understand your job.
I think I would like a heart tracing.”

If I could cremate my thoughts for enlightenment

I’d light the match to my ear

Hear my mind blow up and listen

The heat might burn the hate change my face

Give me intent to be intense

And not lose sight though eyes will burn out

Let my intuition lead me north

These people manipulate, and my senses might deceive me,

Then all I hear is their smiles when my downfall is received

As I burn

Giving light to a dark mind

I no longer need you to fuck me as hard
as I hate myself.

Make love to me
like you know I am better than the worst thing I ever did.
Go slow.
I’m new to this
but I have seen nearly every city from a rooftop without jumping.
I have realized

that the moon did not have to be full for us to love it.
We are not tragedies
stranded here beneath it.
