Vessel

Just beyond my fingertips lies all I’ve ever wanted, All over my fingertips, lies all I’ve ever been. On the tip of my tongue are the words I never said; Tainting my tongue is what I wish I hadn’t. On the surface of my skin rests all of my potential; Etched into my bone is what I will achieve. Dissolved in my tears are nights I never knew; Behind my eyelids are nights I’m glad I was there for. Grazing my heart is everything I’ve ever felt; In my veins are the things I’m lucky I did Ringing in my ears are all the things I’ve heard, Beating in the drum is all I ever needed to hear. I have a fragile body, yet my mind is brittle, All I ever needed to tell you was already there on my skin.
