and I drowned in her ocean
She was love, lust, and explosion”

The beauty of being is suffocating.

Rummage through mountains of torsos and limbs
that all resemble your own. 
This life destroys, and there is nothing you can do but climb through the carnage, and thank God that you still have legs to carry you away, and a heart that hasn’t given up yet.

that the sky cracks herself open out of jealousy, begging you to turn your eyes back to her.”

“Ask him why he can’t commit.
Ask him.
Ask him how he can say he loves you but not check on you everyday.
Why he can call you in the middle of the night but not first thing in the morning.
Why he can’t say your name without splintering his tongue.
Ask him where he goes after he leaves you.
Who he’s with when he says he’s at home.
Tell him you don’t trust him.
Tell him that he makes you crazy,
that his half assd attempts at security drive you mad.
Tell him.
Tell him that you don’t like the way that loving him makes you feel, that you wake up every morning aching.
Tell him, you hurt more, you sleep less and it always feels like you are too weighty for him.
Ask him why he can’t commit,
why he leaves and returns just when you think you can live without him.
Ask him why he can’t stay,
Why he’s committed to leaving but not committed to you.
Ask him why you never feel like you can ask him these things?
Why he gets to live weightless,
while you live shoulder deep inside him.”
