The Lights In My MindThe Lights In My Mind
My heart is not a mourning,
and I am not its keeper.
I learned to swim before I could walk.
I am creaking over in the experiences,
the gush in the rush of it.
Every day is a new
memory. Every time I let
my head on your shoulder,
I let in myself, to myself.
To you too, but to myself.
These days I navigate through the lights
in my mind. The places weve been
feel surreal, how I am not sure
if I am aware
of these happenings as theyre happening:
I need a guide.
To unwind my inner voice,
to curl it around my thoughts,
to thrust it outward
ahead, like a lasso
to captivate future adventures.
Blood BrothersBrookie always holds my hand when we cross the street. She's never given a reason for it, she just does it. It's become this unspoken rule with us that whenever we cross the street together, she slips her hand in mine and I lace my fingers through hers and we walk hand-in-hand until we reach the other side and she drops her hand and we both wipe our palms on our jeans. Brookie's a little scared of crossing the street. Her poppa died in a car crash when we were six. He was a pedestrian. She's never gotten over it.
Brookie is my best friend going on sixteen years now, which is pretty impressive considering we're both sixteen. We don't have some cute little story about how we were born in the same hospital on the same day or about how our mothers were best friends long before they were pregnant with us and somehow passed on that bond while we were still in utero. No, Brookie and I met the same way ever
