- my poetry · 1) EVERYTHING

blistered fingers and chapped lips

IMG_2101

i’m reaching across space
clawing my way past planets
stretching through galaxies
burning my hands on a billion stars

i’m calling across time
screaming my way past light years
whispering through milliseconds
searing my tongue on the days and weeks

i’m roaring through space and time

all at once
all for you

and what do I have to show for it?

blistered fingers and chapped lips
