Signing the Papers
vida

(soon i'll sign the papers
 1
the ones that set you free,
 2
my hands are shaking I cannot help it
 3
my eyes, staring at the words on the page
 4
but I cannot read them)
 5
 
 
I believe I'm losing something
 6
in this warm and empty room
 7
darkening quietly eyes of my own,
 8
from across this barren table
 9
I never blink to anyone,
 10
 
 
somethings are heavier than they appear...
 11
because I can barely carry the weight of this place,
 12
something is heavy about it's air
 13
brushing pass us with unexplainable hurry,
 14
or maybe I am this very moment
 15
feeling everything all at once...
 16
 
 
I made love bridges, now out of control
 17
like hopes that never forgot their part,
 18
but my destinations have crumbled away,
 19
so I don't need paper bridges,
 20
I'll never venture again outside my beating heart,
 21
 
 
trembling hands sign away my first true love
