155 (who?)
I'm sending all my words back
to the people who need them--
people who wear scars like
war trophies, like jewelry, like
an identification for those suffering
from the same acceptance of
self-hate. this is to the people
who sleep with one eye open, who
cry when footsteps enter their room
at night; this is to the girls
who love by cutting their hearts
into snowflakes and watching
them melt. I left you behind and
I can't be sorry for that.

you are the type of beautiful
that kindly asks the world
to fuck off. the days we buried
have decomposed, headstones are
snapshots; sanitized breakdowns,
rusty tongues, sighs laced
with fear, I love you, I love
you. saturdays were the best
because we could sleep through
the nightmare. you painted me a
picture of the world with your words
and they made us wash it away
for being transparent.

we were afraid of nothing
but the monsters in our eyelids.
back then, we counted days
like shooting stars; it took 67
to wish myself away. this
is for you, skygazer; I keep you
in my fingers because you
slipped through the holes in
my heart.
today, i write a letter

To me, this sounds like the speaker trying to comfort a former self and its companions who are still stuck somewhere along a road between perdition and enlightenment. But the comfort rings hollow, since the speaker has evolved to become one of the idols of his former self... and as time and growing older only works in one way, the whole thing crashes in a formidable cul-de-sac of hopes and expectations...

This is so very lovely written. Every time when I think by now you must have spilled your heart out to the last drop, you shove another thought, another idea, another facet of yourself right into my face. I can't imagine that the energetic and enticing well of your creative mind will ever dry up. Baby, you're the best!

This is one of the most intense pieces of writing I've read in a long's a tour-de-force in all of the best possible ways!  Reading this was less like sitting down, looking at squiggles on a white background; it was a journey into a world that's quite familiar, and yet...refined to an unfamiliar, yet potent and emotional degree.  Brilliant!
