Title: When he was the silhouette
it was like
any other day.
but then it was in us like a secret.
and it made us leap and writhe
a little possessed.
but with rhythm and
and he was crying in his way.
and i was yelling so that someone could
and then that dim light
that floats in my chest,
the one that
barely makes a shadow,
burst like stadium fireworks
and burnt the leaves to ashes.
they floated to my upturned face.
i was glowing.
it blackened everything around me.
i sighed to
let the light out.
and i saw everything different
in his shadowy
parts. and everything was different
from that time on.
