secretsi told you my secrets while you were sleeping
whispered words falling heavy from chapped lips
something about you takes my breath away
goes right through me and leaves me in a fog
i almost wish you would have heard
and saved me the trouble of wondering
sometimes i feel like a dog
begging for a little bit of your attention
and sometimes i just want to throw my arms around you
just hold on and never let go
when i know you're listening, the words get stuck
piled up behind my lips and refusing to sound
someday maybe this will make
some semblance of sense
someday i might have a chance
to be everything you need
someday, i hope
we can share something more
you were stretched out on my floor
and i didn't know you were sleeping.
i'll never have the courage to speak again.
Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
