losing things

you go trickling,
slowly pouring.
never realizing,
always hesitating.

your mind in a frenzy,
vision always hazy.
where are you going?
what are you doing?

have I lost you?
have you lost you?
where is your heart?
itโ€™s not doing its part.

your voice is strange,
but your touch is stranger.
youโ€™re getting blurry,
your lightโ€™s getting murky.

you fade like a tattoo
I got in the summer,
like the disappearing pink on my skin,
after it gets all tender.

Iโ€™m losing more words,
dropping my swords,
I sit here draped in myself,
expecting no help.

you lost yourself;
I lost myself.
we lost each other,
and thus,
everything altogether.


all the stars, semi
