more confused than angry

more stuffed away than needing to speak

more afraid of meaning than feeling

more resentful than righteous

more betrayed than mistrustful

more disgusted than indulgent

more agitated

more disappointed

more hurt

more angry about the understanding than the experiencing

such a fleeting moment

it lingers longer than is comfortable

then is washed away by song

and sun

and tomorrow


each moment 

felt like water running down the skin

felt like warmth from the sun

felt like everything became softer, quieter, and wider

like everything was gone

even if just for a moment

like the world was just another shell to hide out in

like you could leave it at any moment

like the moment after something stretched 

and the slack is longer, looser than before
