until i want to

stop

injecting my veins

with poison and pretty lies

no one will stop

me.

my arm is a canvas

and i draw bruises on it

like art.

i will stand

on skateboards

and sit on your

shoulders

and ride the waves

until they will

carry me away.

i never liked

the ground anyway.

it is the place

i land

when all the things

i hold on to

let go of me

because they do not

hold anyone.

it is always

cold.

i like flying

too much

and crashing

even more

because it reminds me

that i was in the air.

is it a crime

to find broken things

so beautiful

that you want to

stay broken?
