safe.

i wish i could take the ache 
from inside you,
and fill it with warm
and hope
and fire
and all the light.
lay on my chest and let me
love you until 
the sun creeps
through the window. 
you will always be safe with me.

tomorrow.

i tell myself,
i will talk to you tomorrow. 
i will cave, tomorrow. 
maybe i can tomorrow
myself into moving
on from this. 
like maybe, tomorrow
i wont remember you
saying how you want to
know all the things. 
maybe tomorrow.

dance

i can feel myself slipping,
sliding slowly into spaces
that are too small
for me to breathe in. 
elephant in my chest, 
weights on my feet. 
i walked into this room,
voluntarily. 
and now it won't let me leave.
i know this dance,
but you can't skip steps. 
move
move
move.
or it will swallow you.
