A part of me wants to RUN AWAY...
to hide from all that is and all that will be
to forget that any and all things exist
to just disappear
A part of me wants to REMAIN...
safe in the comfort of now
sure in the uncertainty of tomorrow
lost in the space that is between
A part of me HIDES...
whenever you exhale
when the world becomes dark
when the light ceases to radiate
A part of me DIES..
with each unfulfilled breath
with each moment of could be that isn't and never will be
with each moon passing
A part of me is SILENT...
whispering only to itself
songs of nothingness, emptiness
longings and dreams unexperienced untouched
A part of me SCREAMS...
to unhearing ears
unbelieving words strung together
ceaselessly in unison they deny
A part of me wants to curl inside of you..
to become you....
to be lost in the expanse that is you....
far from the world..
far from the nothing that is and never was and never will be...
far from preying eyes, ravaging tongues, searching hands...
