You see,
there's a light-hearted levity
to the way I approach things today
I did once say
hearts heal with time
and denial
I think it might be malaria
and LH and FSH that are making my head spin

depression is a forced state of mind
after time and denial deals its hand
When there are people who love you
and people who care
and people who will light things on fire
to make the world
or our retinas
a brighter place

and the sparks that hit my feet
sting a little but it's worth the light
and the eyes that even now
still make it okay
the sparks that that boy throws
still stings my eyes but i'm not crying
anymore he doesn't exist and the past
doesn't exist
and none of it exists to me
and i sleep a little better at night
