a gem

by hillarymay

“Nothing exists, don’t fool yourself, for a wise man like you can see through walls but doesn’t seem to care to leave the building.”

Like a stray feline you’ve placed yourself back into the warmest corner of my mind. Taking up the spaces that hoarded the frustrating notions, the heart wrenching realities of a lack of devotion and I’ve lost track of the bad as your hair tangles around my veins. And you’re just like that. You just are.

Is it the way you sweeten the bitterest of tea from the largest hive that buzzes for blood? Your courage.

Your courage, my love: that could touch such broken glass, me scattered among the sheets, you laughing and breathing, me dreaming and dreaming.”
