Fall in unison with me
onto pillows and bad dreams
Silently, I’ll watch the
hush of your breath
How many people will fall asleep
in sync with me?
Close my eyes and wonder how I got here.
Close my eyes for me when I leave.
Will you hold me when I walk,
walk into the flames?
I am the delicacy you’re unwilling to give up.
I promise you won’t miss me much.
Inadequately explicate the lies I’ve told
The mask I wore
Lay down with me, won’t you?
Synchronize and weep
Blankets that suffocated once,
