Random Poem:

i just remind you of yesterday
thisradioact

i swear i've seen you move this way before
 1
i watch myself cry into your reflection- torn between wanting light to be a figment of my idealistic creations and
 2
wanting a spotlight to shine down on me right at this very moment.
 3
i pictured my face
 4
in between the gasps of desperate
 5
and seemingly infinate abandon
 6
i saw my eyes look lost without caring and
 7
distant without hope.
 8
i wish we'd found this place before i'd knitted myself a cocoon and immersed my existance into bite sized portions for the next floating sparrow to devour.
 9
complete distraction underwhelms my existance.
 10
i wish
 11
i'd worn your soul on my skin
 12
and touched the world with your being.
 13
it meant i could keep our code, our number,
 14
our security and our lives
 15
mine and all mine and not have to share it without you
 16
because you were the only part of myself i could look in the eye and call
 17
'friend'.
