These days are shattering into mirrors of that evening when I was too far away to be able to see how the path curved over your wrist in a distant attempt to forge new roads over old highways, that ran straight to hell.
Roads that grew on the sidewalks of graveyards where canaries came to die.
You were a canary- with a weightless soul.
I remember reading somewhere that the soul of a human weighs the most. You turned into something less than a human that day. You were starving for, and yet full of an empty sort of feeling, that came when you lit candles in a church where it was a sin to pray.
I don't remember if we ever prayed though. I do however remember you being on your knees, and whispering her name like an invocation-
The name of a woman lost to the night you broke your ribs over a mantelpiece of corpses, to remember a sky smudged with poems of long faded illusions. //ari @fallen.alone🍁
