“Principles of nature, such as gravity, are not something created by the mental process of a person, and so cannot be copyrighted. Other things that cannot be copyrighted include: ideas, concepts, processes, systems…”
music by: Helena Hauff
the problem with the line / dividing me up / between the measurements i take / and the compounded screams my body’s chambers / make / is the simple fact that it makes me see / the atrocious fear your restless heart denies
my mind getting lost in the sanctity / of your eyes / blurring the space between / where you stand / and where i need to be
my pride in a pool on the floor / i wait for you / to catch up / to our start / waves of your echoes / rattling you / behind
faultless rains / washing us clean / yet you take / the first leave
out / to secondhand streams / a blinded sip / from a cup / mistaken
this is the slowest car crash i’ve ever been a part of. just the worst emotions stretched out over the air, swallowing it all.
just trying to b[r]e[athe]
quietly shifting the fat from the bones to the to the pit of my disgust inside the windowless walls where the colors trap you in, reminding you that you belong here.
