cloudsholddreams:

And I will continue
To rest my head upon a thousand pillows
For an unfocused amount of hours
Than to leave it
Heavy in the sun
Unable
To bear its own weight.

And I will continue
To rest my head upon a thousand pillows
For an unfocused amount of hours
Than to leave it
Heavy in the sun
Unable
To bear its own weight.

How’s your summer? - Lebanon

don’t believe that you are 

of the make-up of an ideal human

there are parts of my body

made of wood:

my shaky hands - 

everyone’s shaky hands

leaving infinite years 

worth of mistakes and indentations - 

gaps of me

falling to the ground

in the shape of peculiar shavings


they tell you

you are born whole

but i have been carved down

to a 22 year old

pencil-thin structure

inside a strange body


humans

regenerate

much of what they lose

but ignore

the rapidly withering soul .

Favorite seat in the house - Lebanon
