Barred from the world

This is my artistic expression, or comment, on what’s going on in the world today. We are continuously told to be positive and make the best out of it, but it’s also important to be allowed to express frustration, sadness, fear and loneliness. It is okay to feel those things AND to express them 💖.

I set myself on fire for you

Your arteries seem clogged with the debris of dreams,

The ghosts of your loves are edged into your skin.

I watch your eyes on me; deserted islands sunk into a milky sea,

And I set myself on fire for you …

Flames sputtering, dependably, icy into your veins,

Like an epiphanic drug swimming in your stead.

I convert you to me …

Making you an addict to my dreams.

What days to come?

What days to come will run, will swim,

Will drag me by the hair?

Will flood, will dry, will crash

Into my boundaries?

All I know is that you’ll be there

To cause me pain, to lift my joy,

To take away my grief.

You are time, you are the sea of consciousness,

You are Eternity, you are me.
