Hanging Love in the Air


Eyes staring through me,

humans with strange hearts

Love hangs in the air,

filling balloons on a string

Doors locked shut,

a hallway of tears,

I’m drowning and running

and getting nowhere


Spirits fill one half of me,

half dead,

eyes half closed

and humans with strange hearts

haunt my sleep

My heart is full

but my fingers are stiff from

going too long without

holding a pen



finally open my eyes,

banish the spirits

and hang love in the air.
