Just like a war, but softer

 

War

I am always inspired when shaken up by the world. My sentences are afraid of you and the light, so please don’t read them.

I would sit straight and exposed in the middle of the summer

giving loads of fucks about everything

Cause it was all worth it.

I would quietly play the same song in my mind

wishing and wishing and hoping until I felt tiredness

Cause it was beautiful.

I would ask and aim for answers designed to be tough.

Cause it was daring.

Then I went to wait in line

for what I know that it is mine.
