the destructive walls are shaded
in grey and i am remembering
every feeling i have forgotten-

i am terrified.

this is a city that never sleeps,
the bones of my chest thrumming
like taxi cabs in the streets,
my fingers shaking
in want for comfort and solace
and love.

i am not standing
in lorca's vomiting crowd-
i am his vomiting crowd,
looking high and low
and between my clenched fists
for catharsis and purification,
for the reason of this illness
pressed against my skin,
for the indefinable sickness
i drown in like bubbles of spit
day in and day out.

i fear the restraints
i've placed for myself,
that they may not be there
or are not in fact real.
i am caught within a sticking web
of decaying sweetness,
coney island's cotton candy,
yet it is not a trap.

i am afraid of love
and that it holds me back.
i am afraid of love
because i am used to skin on skin,
animalistic,
when the drum beats meet.
i am afraid of love
because it is so far stretched
over these thousand miles,
that i fear it might break
and i will wait another
week for the mail
to arrive
to tell me so.
based on my current feelings and frederico garcia lorca.
