Dark forms… 2018

Dark forms... 2018

I breathe in deeply, watching the dust particles swirl in a complicated fashion, the sunlight streaming in through the window

It is the first time in days I have lifted the blinds… not only on the windows of this room, but on darker corners of my mind

I remember what it felt like to be open, glowing like neon

To be aflutter with anticipation, twitterpated

And then the blinds began to slowly slide down one day, until it was too dark to see you

We became dark forms moving around, careful not to bump into one another

so careful, I can’t even remember what it feels like to touch you

I curl my outstretched fingers into my palm, capturing the dust and thoughts together perhaps the window will open today

Breathing in fresh air, instead of the recycled and stale scent of these memories
