Your thoughts are sullied and torn -
I hear them whisper from your ears,
torturing you with truths you would
rather forget. We do not speak of this
often, but tonight is different. Tonight,

the moon is full, and the clouds
weep the syllables of your name. Tonight,
the air is thick with hunger, and nourishment
zests from your veins. Tonight...tonight,

the doves sing wretched melodies through
misplaced strands of your hair. As your words
give way to impasse, the grass stills beneath
your trembled fists. I kneel beside you
on broken branches, trying to remember

the cadence of your favorite star. But I think
we have both forgotten.
Sometimes...there is nowhere left to go.

Thank you so much. :heart: This is a beautiful comment, and I've read it a few times. I haven't been able to come up with an adequate response, so I suppose this will have to do. Thank you so much for saying this, it really does mean a lot to me.
