she blew a kiss to me 

and rode away

I was already crying and

she made me smile 

fragile raspberry I am

stuck in angry seeds

stuck in the past 

stuck here 

I was injured by innocent butterflies

they didn’t know what they were doing 

hell is when I’m not compassionate 

pain is when I’m not patient 

and the soft quick pieces of time when I love 

moonlight starlight sunshine heart shaped 

that person is here

I breathe 

chase clouds 

chase hurts 

chase now 

nothing is mine even if I feel like it is but

mine laughs at me 

mine runs away 

mine dies 

mine is with me 

mine is with you 

mine saved me from the barnacles

and the saltwater taste in my mouth
