only here,
in the barren wasteland of my bedroom
do i ever find a pack of skeletons,
none dancing, none singing,
but all just laying there on their spines,
glaring at the walls.
They are like me, except I never do feel at home
not with these teeth marks on my heart
and my lost collection of egos
and feeling worth it.

the world is spinning faster than I can keep up,
but slow enough to lull me to laziness.
the sun is 92,960,000 miles away
but it is closer to me than anything has ever been.

still, I run my fingers through the carpet,
looking to touch something, to feel.
there is marrow there,
maybe even a foreign skin from somewhere underground,
but all I see is a herd of biologists, and make-ups and DNA's;
skeletons.
I can't tell which is mine anymore.
you are in Ireland,
with that same thunder in your eyes,
setting fire to the greenery of men's hearts.

in me, rumbling, low and hungry.

and there are neurons that are gassed and running
that I am
something
in the very least.

you are in Ireland,
with your coal hair and unforgiving touch.
there was a lightning in you,
striking every chord of your own happiness.
no, I haven't seen a red cardigan since you left,
and daylight doesn't look the same.
I miss you
and I know I am missing
something. you
are where I am supposed to be
