The Instinct

Standard

Instinct
First reaction
Spark
Initial thought
The start of a fire
Truest blunt
Don’t blink
Say it at once

The Drawer

Standard

I’ll draw new eyes for you
When I can no longer remember how they shone
I’ll trace your new face
Your new figure
When I’ve forgotten how you used to look
No need to worry
No need to be afraid
I can draw you
I can lengthen days

The Long Speech

Standard

A thousand words in my stomach
The utterances
All my speeches
Rolling and turning in my stomach
A million words in my belly
The pieces and bits
Silent thoughts hidden in my body
My blank eyes
My indifference
My face rarely lit
Your ears
Your hunger
I’m not gonna feed

The Disguised Blessing

Standard

I thought something was missing
I thought I had something less
Until I’ve bled these words
Until I’ve shared how bad it hurts
It’s a disguised blessing
I’ve made the survivors heard
