let me go

Thu, 01/30/2014 - 16:50 -- kxh95

watch me walk away

you can run your fingers through the space i once filled

but you will never know the skin within

its pulsations follow only me and vanish as i do

much like the stars i need to move

through heavenly bodies, both dark and day

and as i migrate further my body disintegrates

and i become immoral in thought

spirits like stone are hard to budge but a little leverage goes a ways

suddenly a heaviness breaks upon me, the earth turns and hardens

time lies awake, alert of a presence

you can’t catch me, you can’t catch me

the wind never settles, the oceans never cease

don’t catch me, don’t bother

i want to feel my bones crack under the weather
