8 LAUGH -

LOOK AT MY FACE, DOES IT STILL LOOK THE SAME? YOU SHOULD KNOW. YOU USED TO FEEL IT EVERY DAY. I'M DEFEATED, BECAUSE TIME HAS ERODED AND THE THINGS THAT I'VE CHOSEN TO
REMEMBER ARE OVER. BUT IT'S WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE, SAND AT THE EDGE OF THE OCEAN. I STAND ALONE HOPING STILL BUT FLOATING. MUST FEEL BETTER. HOW DO YOU DO IT? HOW HAVE YOU DONE IT IN THE
PAST? I USED TO LAUGH AT YOU BUT NOW YOUR WINGS ARE LAUGHING RIGHT BACK. CAN'T GRASP YOU. CAN'T ASK YOU TO RECONSIDER. BECAUSE YOU ALREADY PLANTED THE SEEDS FOR WINTER. IT'LL BE BACK
AGAIN TO SAFELY INUNDATE ME, BLATANTLY PAINTING, MAYBE ON DREAM CHASING, HATING ME UNTIL THE KING HIMSELF COME AROUND PAYING ME... RIGHT. DELUSIONS OF JUSTICE OR KARMA COMING THROUGH FOR
ME. ARM IN ARM, YOU AND ME, I’D KILL MYSELF FOR THAT, FOR HAPPENSTANCE, OR FOR OUR HALF ROMANCE TO AT LEAST COME TO A FULL FINISH. WHAT'S THERE TO DO BUT LAUGH? BUT I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT I
FORGOT TO DO THAT. WHEN THE SUN’S OUT I HATE YOU, BUT BY MOONLIGHT I LOVE YOU. I MISS YOU. EVERY NIGHT IS A STRUGGLE. WHEN I WAS WITH YOU, I FORGOT WHO I WAS AND THINGS MADE SENSE. NOW MY
TIME IS SPENT ENGAGED IN PREEMPTIVE DEFENSE. BUILDING A FENCE AROUND THE CLOUD THAT HANGS OVER MY HEAD BECAUSE MY JOY IS SHATTERED GLASS AND MY LAUGH IS PRETEND. SO PRETEND YOU NEVER
MET ME. WISH I COULD DO THE SAME. BECAUSE I SOLD TOMORROW SHORT FOR A NEW TODAY. I FELL PAST THE TREE LINE, PAST THE STREET, AND UNDER THE SUBWAY, MY PAST REPEATS. MY LAST REPRIEVE IS
THE GRIEF THAT FIGHTS ON. ROCK BOTTOM, LIMESTONE, SPOTLIGHT, I AM ALONE. READY TO SPEAK BUT MY WORDS LOST THEIR PURITY. INVISIBLE DISEASE THAT IS NOW BLURRING THE LINE BETWEEN REAL AND FAKE.
I FELT SAFE WHEN I WAS WITH YOU. YOU’D LIGHT UP AND LAUGH WHEN I KISSED YOU. IT SEEMS HAPPINESS IS AN ILLUSION, AND YOU'VE MASTERED IT. I CAN TELL. IT SHOWS UP IN EVERY PHOTOGRAPH THAT I HAVE
PLASTERED UP ON MY WALL, SUBTRACTED, BACK FROM WHEN YOU STILL LOVED ME, PAST TENSE. AND IF I FAILED AT LIFE BUT MADE YOU SMILE IT WAS WORTH IT. HYPNOTIZED ON THE SURFACE LEVEL BUT A KISS FROM
YOUR LIPS IS WORTHLESS. HELLO. WISH I COULD TAKE IT BACK. I'M SORRY. DIDN'T MEAN TO MAKE YOU LAUGH.
