Random Poem:

sometimes, I forget to breathe
JKWeb

my heart’s ocean
 1
crashes upon her Stonehenge.
 2
 
 
I spiral into self-deprecation
 3
and medicate regret.
 4
 
 
she appears in each dream
 5
to extinguish the universe
 6
and stores me on
 7
her dying sun.
 8
 
 
I gather light
 9
on Earth’s satellite,
 10
yet my lungs hang
 11
like paper weights.
 12
 
 
sometimes, I forget to breathe
 13
and once in a blue moon,
 14
I can’t remember.
 15
