frame this mess I made
the dyes are bleeding
into indigo lakes
drown my hazy view
with your red lipstick
and forget-me-not blues
anything can feel new any day
a sense I can’t outrun
the dyes are bleeding
my heart has been undone
paint me a bed where I can relax
and your eyes can become my suns
now anywhere can be just a day away
I’m seeing violet for the first time
we spend months
collecting dust
on top of our bedsheets
the faucet is dripping
the window breaks
the iron rusts
birds, they get in
but they don’t see us
they’ll never find us here
in stained glass buildings
we’re away
in frames of Monet
Mucha prints
Debussy scores
we’re greenhouse explorers
