Rookie (my mum)

Purifies - Poem by jeremy moore

If, for example, you lived at the bottom of the sea
I’d cut my feet off and become a fish
If I got closer to you the deeper I sank
I wouldn’t even mind becoming a shadow that wanders through the endless darkness

My shimmering haze hangs charmingly in the air
I was just drowning in the days that didn’t work out
You’re not here
I know that, I know that

As the sun rises and rises
It purifies the place where I am
The warm, warm wind takes away
The blue stamp imprinted on me
If, for example, these words reach you
You can rip out my vocal cords and throw them away

I was longing, longing
To have lost my stinging wounds
And for your warmth to take everything away
Even if it was just a dream

Your warmth is disappearing, disappearing
Taking with it the place where I am
I want to go to sleep wrapped in your arms
That even wipe out my punishmentAs your warmth disappears, disappears
It purifies the place where I am
The warm, warm wind takes away
The blue stamp imprinted on me

The pieces of my memories are rotting away
I don’t have enough piercings to cover myself
I'm forgetting you, you're fading
Your voice fades into the rabble

And in the end your gone
