remove myself

say the name you have chosen  
over and over  
numb to the ways you have touched me  
so fully I hardly even know  
until these words come through me  

when we're together †   † † †or after † † † † in mind  
†† † † † † † † † † † † the world is breaking  
†† † † † † † † † † † † † †over and over  
it doesn't matter - our surroundings  
- we are making it out of Time  
spinning shattering  
garden lights of forests  
- how indifference turns into a rising wave  
if I let it be  
by its own  
if you see me  
if I let - can't help it - †
beyond all words  
all texts  
desires  
plans †
human humanness  
in us  
With every second that passes between us  
the world that holds us is Never born  

I am old here  
and removed  
I never want  
the love that finds me  
I can't even  
feel it this time  
but still,  
such words will come through me.  

Too soft to feel  
Too painful for skin  
Too delicate for anything more solid than  
the space between our imaginations  
where we communicate  
and remember  

Where it unfolds  
if I let it breathe, it grows  
- like a baby.  
remove myself,  
it goes  
- like Nothing.  
in the tunnel you create  
I can make what has not been made.  

It nullifies  
what you learn through travel  
for now the world is moving around us;  
I am not traveling anymore;  
I hear it from a distant mountain's echo  
the obsolete thoughts they still speak below.  
The past is distance  
rise up miles  
create new life  
a planet  
next to our Reality:  
one day it will come through.  

Walk with me  
†† † † † †wherever we go  
†† † † † † † † † † † there's no  
†† † † † † † † † † † going back to what we were before;  
†† † † † I stay stable as the winds pass through me  
†† † † † and blow down civilizations - †
my years of experience  
catch your crying hand.  
A second passes  
watching you - †
I open my mouth to

Love is gross and I hate myself for this

if I remove myself, I come full circle.
