welcome home, starling

you are safe now

Remember The High

Remember The High

Bright lights, white walls
Do you smell the blood behind the bleach
and the trembling
in your bones

5 days, 3 appointments, 4 red tubes
17 pills, +12 tests, 1 life left

When we start to wilt,
and the world tilts away from us
We’ll hold our scars
and remember it.
