Random Poem:

sometimes, I forget to breathe

my heart’s ocean
crashes upon her Stonehenge.
I spiral into self-deprecation
and medicate regret.
she appears in each dream
to extinguish the universe
and stores me on
her dying sun.
I gather light
on Earth’s satellite,
yet my lungs hang
like paper weights.
sometimes, I forget to breathe
and once in a blue moon,
I can’t remember.
