after and

In this life I am the after and

I’m Labrador and pepper, butter and oranges

I made no mistake, I know where I stand

I’m minutes, I’m flowers

When the funeral is done

Imagine seeing me at my best

I’m me,

After you,

After and.

forget.release

meet me at my watery edges
cast your judgements aside
and find that you are free
there are no eyes on you
but mine
forget
release
accept fate and all of its disclaimers
the distance between you and your desires
is a fleeting thought
amongst the rot of your doubt
forget
release
cast your judgements aside
and breathe your deepest breath
the only thing holding you back
is you.

every night

maybe I do
go to the valley of the shadow of us
every night
I smell that woodsmoke
I see that constellation
I am alone in the
in-between
where you and I were
and whatever’s next
it’s safe to say
there’s nobody like you
it’s safe to say
I broke my heart too
every night
I burn away the memories
I block out the sky
I am alone in the
in-between
where you and I
were you and I
