Those red flags dusted your eyelashes
Shutters flashing open to reveal your fears
I was fine at first
“We all have our insecurities”
And brushed them away with my fingertips
Redefining the very core of me
With their licks and edges
They fought against freedom
Leaving me alone
In the place they had once welcomed me to so proudly
Those brilliant red flags.

I keep myself up at night.
My howls, echoing below the earth
are muted but powerful.
of emotions on breaks
wracks my bones, vibrating
at the highest chord.
It was a dull existence,
and still is, Somewhere. But at least
now I have an excuse for inaction –
rotted flesh rarely makes a good impression.
there is nothing I can do
for the ghosts of the present,
but feel these screams,
silent to everyone, even me,
from beyond past and future.
