What A Wish I'd Be

I wish to be loveable

what if I quietly disappeared one day just like your counterfeit love

what if I took off all my clothes and neatly folded them, even the gloves,

where we spent all those happy nights before you began screaming at me.

what if I raised my arms in absolution to Sycamore trees climbing eternity,

and then let myself be picked up on the breeze just like dandelion fluff
