my two most talented friends that i have nothing but admiration for.
thanks to friends, family, and anyone that listens. love you so much and for forever.
last winter my friends all visited my parents old house
before the weeds were all pulled up
before the vines came back around
to trap us in our useless steps
i was already sleeping for years
dreaming of the carpets i stained in nauseating lust
no one got to close to avoid the vomit
expelling from the bottom of my soul
that turned that whole world gray
flowers in my hair
twisting in my skin
your friends put them there
to rot in my skull
Track Name: flowers pt. 2
i feel so foreign:
i'm not meant to be in this body i inhabit
with these dreams that hang over me
your mother swears i'm dying
says that shirt is choking me
with the shackles of our language
and the breaths we couldnt breathe
and i will sleep with flowers
and they are kind to me
and in my peaceful dreaming
the world dissolves quietly
oh body, be held by whom you love
swallowed in the silence
of the sky that hangs above.
