Coma (day 26)

There’s a bullet hole in my past

I can’t keep a secret

but I need to

so I lie awake every night in a coma

made of superhuman proof


Running from light that can’t find me

Crushing desire in my head

I’m holding you back,

I might as well fall


Secrets weigh more than a lifetime

so I want to give you the sun

and everything I think

But instead I stay here with

your playlist overflowing, gone tasteless


That’s what echoes in my ears

as I stay awake every night in a coma

made of lies but

tangled up in more proof than I want to admit
