armed and recycled


maybe we are already in heaven,
sleeping in a bed that Jesus made us,
dreaming about the life we lived because
even through all of the battles we've waged,
the blood from those wars is somehow apart
of us and we miss it all the same.

maybe when we die, we'll awake on a cloud
to someone as sad and as happy as we'll
ever be. maybe this is already over
I hope so
I'll fix this later
There are holes in my ceiling
from all of the times I've shouted out against the dark, against the grain of my existence.
And even in my most comfortable state,
my hands tremble and shake with desire.
I want to grip the points of burning stars.
I want them to pierce and infect me
cut me with reassurance.
I want to know that I am somehow awake or asleep
or alive or I am
proof that inanimate beings
can still bleed.

At night,
I can see through my eyelids,
I can see the world revolve around everything.
these nightmares and the lines between what I think and what I know,
what I feel and what I have become are so blurred
that I start to believe in romance again.
This time, I hope it kills me.
I'm having trouble discerning imagination from reality
