I broke my watch when I knocked upon your door. We made a pact to never go back. Awakened and free we scraped our knees jumping down to hear what the breeze sings, violent swings we curse the ground. What lies beneath the man- made gray guilt smudged below our feet? Awakened and free, we scraped our knees. Awakened and free. The shock travels from hand to limb, but I honor the promise with prose and pen. My liver, my spine, my listless mind. Swallow me with keen dirt and kiss the scars on my hands. Shuffle our feet to the edge of the cliff, share goodbyes, and lock fucking lips. The world forever yours and mine, but god damn forever is such a long time.
