Someday, I will grow silent.
Someday the sound will stop in its gut, my mouth will sew itself.

I'll grow tired of the table, of watching you talk,
my hands will turn to the keys, I'll watch them speak.

Picture me as a tree: the mind, the hands
are watering themselves, the leaves will sprout within.

I'm a weather system, my breath's the rain, my eyes the sun, sometimes,
my shoes are clouds.

I may not leave the room    that's ok.

I will water

I'll watch the sun come up
in my eyes,

I will sprout violets
                     you cannot see.
Why would you want any other
when you're a world within a world?
As the music left my fingers,
I saw how beautiful my hands were.
Playing the Piano
That's all of it for now. I feel no need to elaborate. :heart:
When I wanted to walk with you and hold hands in the snow,
we only got as far as your van from your friend's house
with it snowing by pure coincidence.

To wake up to it now,
it's enough just to think of you,
and to hope that you're thinking of me.
When someone we love leaves us for a while,
let's not pretend that the instinct to wish them a safe trip doesn't come
from the sliver of thought hanging at the back of our brains, imagining death.

Some will see the blood and charred bones already, others just the crash.
Most will summon their energy up, make their last moments count
between them and the human leaving, (let the back of their receding head linger),
and those who won't would not let the thought of "last" enter.

Let's not pretend this isn't an instinct, a wish to hold in your palms
everything that person means to you at once,

because you can't see the dice that float above their heads,
the ones that cast the odds.
Safe Travels
I've been wishing safe travels a lot, lately.
