Parts and Pieces

PicSee,
we are
the
parts and
pieces
of
other things
crammed
into
small spaces,
and
without
too
much
air to
whisper
the
characters
‘let me out’.

We’re
shook,
frozen in
time,
and
like
Noah once said,
“There’s
only
room
for two
of us in this
world,
and I’m
not
going anywhere
anytime
soon.”

See,
those parts
and
pieces
fall
like free
will, and
I’ll
be damned
if
I come
ill-prepared,
idle even,
and
without
a leg
or
two
to
stand on.

But
getting back
to
those
parts,
let’s just imagine
two
worlds
claiming
the same
space in between,
and
if one decides
the
other
should
have it
all, then
those
parts
and pieces
simply
become
us defined
and
our
only next
option
is
to
fall
in
love with
the
next conquest.

See, these
parts
and pieces
are
full
of the stuff
of
Gods,
and I’m
just
giddy
in
knowing
that
we
get
to
listen in
on
a few
of
those
conversations.

Unlikely

It
seems
highly
unlikely
that
we’ll
do much
better,
so
let’s fly
away
like
two feathers
fighting
for
the same
airspace,
or
the time
you
almost
lost yourself
to
my
touch.

Let’s
forget about
last
night’s
fight,
and make
love
in
between
the sheets
with
a likeliness
in
mind
to repeat
and
then repeat
again.
