untitled XXIendless waves and your remains,
the sun brighter than ever seen.
a missing piece just like all the other makeshift bridges,
that never want to let you go on.
deciding you're not minding staying after all.
thinking your enduring is bringing you closer to farther away,
that sparing a few moments could be worth it as long as you're alone
the falls honoring their name with reckless abandon,
and trying to free your feet from the ground;
one of the few things you would expect to persist
but it too will erode away
like every friend that could ever be made.
pursed lips blowing away dust that proliferates
with every tick the second hand makes,
and somehow your other hand can't sweep away.
and now you're shaking like you sometimes do
the companion of erratic breathing.
no light could find you now.
when I cry you cry too.
but I wish I could do something else.
it plagues your every thought
and I fell ill just as long ago
but I'm frozen in fear of something worse.
