In Grain

Oh how lovely. How liberating.

I change my mind. I can stop.

This love thing has a pause.

My heart has become elastic.


I can stretch it over your face then

Ping !

Draw back.

Just like you have.

I don’t have to sink deeper

I can grab a branch. Pull myself out.

Whoosh. Suck. Whoosh.


Out I come from whatever this was.

Not covered in goo but grain.


Quicksand after-all. No slime.

No grime.

Oh my how I’ve changed .

My mind. My life. My way of loving.

It’s better this way.

Better for me.

But the funny thing is when I walk away.

You always follow.
