Day 80 – on some days (let us bellow)

Day 80
11:00 pm – 11:46 pm

on some days (let us bellow)

in listening to songs that bellow our
fears

turning them in to sonnets of raw
imagination

i wish to awaken in a tremble, purely
unscathed

so i say, that is how i walk the earth
tomorrow

i will rise, open, clean, unabashed and
unassuming

but even sooner than when i release that
promise

i can feel the crumble of the worlds
weight

it collapses like the shoulders of dwarfed
giants

the strong ones who, on some days, fall asleep
crushed

and, sometimes, I fold to the reflection of my
attachments

for an otherwise free spirit, I hold too tightly to
inhibition

it feels false, then, too fragile to set
goals

attempting to imagine feels like a feat of
naivete

and dreams turn to become the fantasies of planned
obsolescence
