giving

succumb and detach
heavy footsteps
leave holes in the carpet
the same path
in different contexts

you watched the blood
drip from a crack in my lip
waited eagerly
to see it color the ground beneath you
and it still felt like something
while I kept my eyes closed

I’ll get lost again
on my way home
lost
safe and sound
