rising and collapsing lungs.
liquids boiled and brewed and running.
a sheet more crumbled than a dream.
fingers tracing the contours of a fantasy.
bored beyond belief.
the giggles and sighs of different lives.
endless books of limited letters.
crackling knees and jaw.
childish and undesired companions.
knowledge that slips away from its birth.
foreign voices of familiar faces.
music that blends into your blood.
an existence put down in virtual ink.
the same old worries of yesterday and tomorrow.
too many breaks.
apathy of the soul and feet.
no room for rebellion.
