anywhere but here

anywhere but here

i only like myself when im drinking or dreaming
in dreams, i float
sugar veins pump glucose and verve from my wet hair to my knob-like toes
pastel tabs in warm mouths like dewdrops on burgeoning blossoms
ill tear holes in your shirts and leave you hanging like thick winter coats on rusted hooks
in dreams, i stand in the light and i am not afraid
i capture reality’s shadow and slip it in my back pocket
dancing and perspiring with trolls and imps who pack thick lips and carry a heady scent
they are meaningless and i kiss them all and bite holes in their cheeks
my brain is wading in pools of tonic and i will not allow it to come up for air
it leaks out of my ears and drips down my neck
everything is melted in puddles
memories splashed across hot black concrete
the earth could soak me up and id kiss the dirt and say thank you
happily be swallowed by the barren expanse
graciously be washed up on another shore in another dimension

  1. This is incredible! So very vivid! Your descriptions are on point, wait scratch they they are soaring up above the point and raining glitter all over it 😂 That’s how good I find your writing here.

    Also on a side note, this kinda reminds me of the song King of The Clouds by Panic! At The Disco.

  2. Such a fun read.
    I really enjoyed this.

    Especially these lines;

    “in dreams, i stand in the light and i am not afraid
    i capture reality’s shadow and slip it in my back pocket”

    Excellent!

    -Speaking of Panic at the Disco.. I just boxed up one of their Tour Kits today. Great band.
