Unless the walls shatter themselves in a collision to break free

Until the stars fall to pebbles to match the dust, you’ll see

At the bottoms of misery’s ocean

Is a soul manic to its core

Pride that lingers the wreck

Doesn’t bring it back life

I’m not scared of the starts that wreck you just a little bit enough.

I do not fear the benign stops that leave you gasping in puddles of truth.

I do not fear nothing that has ever been.

But the steady glide.

The straight line.

That feels like nothing

That becomes from nothing

And will come to nothing at all.

I fear just how long that line is.

I fall like an empire at its peak. And you like a feather

Flying fatefully down to rock bottom

Every cell that trembles in regret

Trust me, every single one will forget

At the end of a heartfelt cry, every regret is still the right decision

On the edge of every loose sword is a heart still figuring it out.

But you never had it in you.

What did you ask for when the day was out?
When the bridges of red brick
Fell to clay
And then nothing
Like make-believe

I’ve had you there in the back of my mind
I’ve had you there all this time

And this will take me out
The way we’ll always end up being casualties in their moments of clarity

And this will make me into something else
The way I rise from pieces of me
I haven’t seen before
Now I know where it hurts the most.

Momina Arif.

Every person you met was someone you’ve already been

Every day that would come around would come around again
