between my heart and brain

My angels seem to have flown.

I’ve given some away.

I wouldn’t blame the last for leaving even though I need them to stay.

I thought to howl your name into the night but I didn’t want to wake neighbours I barely know so I hope you hear the breaking of my heart if you decide to go.

I can’t tell the difference between my heart and brain.

It all feels the same.

The shatter cuts through barriers and its sound is my soul cry.

I might be easily confused but I can never lie.

My eyes are like almonds; sometimes bitter and shaped for you.

I’m not sure where they came from because someone can’t tell the truth and it’s not because they’re deceiving, I think they want to protect an alibi but I can see it in the mirror and I’d like to know why.

I’ve never been a beggar though I’ve stolen from the proud and I’ve given more than taken and lost more than I have found.

I’ve been granted blessings.

Can I count you in?

My wings are made to fly and this is where I begin.

I asked for you last night yet I doubt you heard my need; my want is a desire and so much bigger than me.

My love you are untouchable; the thing I just can’t reach.

I can feel you in my soul.

I can’t hold you when I speak.

So whisper that you’re worthy or write it in my eyes.

Kiss my soul now baby your silence feels like goodbye.
