In the wanting, there’s a greif-

nothing comes for free they say-

I built a wall, I cast a seive-

I want to burn my bones, believe,

in all the dreams that come today…


If you cast hopes into the sky,

The ocean will have rain for weeks-

the salty drops of clouds that cry,

for all the human yearns and seeks.


If kindness kills, then so do dreams-

The only push to keep us going.

If time just stills, the earth would scream

with all the pain that comes with knowing.


I sawed my soul in half today-

To set free all the need within it-

It clawed out its way,

This unbearable weight,

and still, I am no lighter for it.
