Numbness after a breakup.

I feel untouched by love


It's what the clouds are made of 

Gliding through, I come out the other side 


Puffy eyes watch as I go on to explore the sky, 

Collecting droplets in my hair. 

A pillowy bed by night, from which I watch the stars 

Burned away by daybreak. 

I have sinews that keep my bones in my skin 

And my eyes in my head 

Love is just water, truthfully. 

And my hair is wet 

It will dry with the wind as I fly.
