I am with you on a living room floor, drifting,
with streetlights burning our skin an orange glow.
You look like an angel and I couldn’t teach myself to exist
inside this body, but
I want to be vital. I want to put my hands on your hips.
I thought I could teach myself how to feel like the earth
- dirty and wholesome. I want to love something
without chasing God into its ribcage.
I want to love something without looking for its insides.
I am with you on a rooftop above the smog of the city
with smoke curling around our toes, watching lights dance in the distance.
My hands keep begging me to burn them clean.
I don’t feel very wholesome.
Yes, there is blood on my hands. It’s yours.
I only wanted to be vital, but I couldn’t love you
without rummaging through your guts for something sacred.
Yes, I still look at you through the bathroom mirror, through the silky dark,
haloed in the dingy bedroom lamplight.
You are burning me out, take your bloodied clothes and go.
I am with you on a rooftop above the smog of the city,
and there are no lights left in the distance.
I couldn’t teach myself to love tolerably. You left all your bloodied shirts in the hall.
I ran 16 by myself on Saturday on the LRT. It’s a great trail through the western suburbs, skirting the frozen southern shores of Lake Minnetonka. It’s a great trail and is plowed down to a thin packed snow base.
On Sunday I returned to the LRT again, this time with Beth and two of our friends. Beth looks like a snow angel right? It was cold again (5f) but I was warm with just a layer of smartwool, a short sleeve dri-fit shirt and my jacket. We celebrated with YoYo donuts.
Last picture is a bonus Scout the Beagle picture. Every Beagle likes to sleep under a blanket right?
When senpai is even more powerful than you anticipated ( @jisunshines )
