Satunnainen teksti

Concealed violence

I dreamed of being an orphan, adopted
less manipulated
I was never silenced
I grew up silent, on my own
into the noisy world

One

I created a sea for myself
someone else created the fishes

My sea drowned me

Numb

Someone left the last cord unconnected
the static of the television fills my mind
I don't recognize my own reflection from the mirror
I touch my face and take notice
of my body's empty echo
The volume control recovers from a loose connection
my body has teleported to the bathroom
- I find myself watching the scene unfold from the corner of the ceiling
instead of the floor
Tinnitus

I drift back to sleep
which is my life

request

soft hand
now listen to me
hug me

Disguise

no one told me I'm a piece of machinery
where do I get oil
how do I treat myself
amongst the people

Mirror

I try to find pieces of myself in others
pile up a new me out of the sea
these days I breathe better
underwater
choking
