"If that's all that happened, it wasn't much
If you keep on talking, I'll lose my lunch
If you don't believe in God, I can't believe in you."

If things break so easy, then were they ever true?

The things you say
cause traffic jams
in my heartbrainsoul.
Like a spent gladiator
crawling in the colosseum dust
who can count on his remaining limbs
all the people he can trust.
Like the one who stands behind him
cheering him on
Estatic when he stands defiant,
wild with abandon when he's gone

just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
