Finding the strength and fibre to fill
My gaping heart that stings from the wind
Consciousness sparking and spurring
Magnetic surges for the positive to my negative

Teeth hitting cement and cracked split
My mouth is falling apart
Falling to the wind
Thin and salty strokes across my chin

Eyes obedient and steady
But my face flushes drunk betrayal
Speech even and predictable
But my fingers knot in my pockets

I break free propelled by force
To an easy space to an easy crowd
Eyes on the walls look past me
Eyes behind me burn my neck

Weight across my shoulders pulls me close
Suddenly the wind howls through my chest
Disjointed hopes scream across
Your eyes and mine
