Branches


awoken... a silent word was spoken

passing shadows of the graveyard in the sun

when suddenly i saw myself in everyone

i could be sleeping

if i could release these visions

my certainty is eclipsed by the unknown

i know you’re breathing

i know your heart is beating

and i can’t escape the thought

of what’s inside

in the corridors

where angels run away and hide


“you seem so fragile,” she said...

“why do you tremble?

i can almost see the ashes in your skin...

i hear you speaking but your lips aren’t moving

what is it you are implanting in my heart?

are we growing closer or ever further apart?”


one thing branches into another

and always lying under is what’s been

somehow we’re aware of things that we have never seen
