What I felt when I looked at you

a life sized to daily care which does not occur regularly nor properly they don't care It's just a mere fulfillment of inflicted patterns pushing you to die through those papers (don't sign them) they've inserted your heart in a metal cage and corrosion imprinted soul making words reek like rust through the flesh desiccated branches ramify bones have become autumn but eyes somehow assured the summer to stay so captured light can cut approaching clouds like laser and darkness won't shade your resting while you're painting that dream of a house settled by the dalmatian coast your sea is calling for you I saw you leaving wanting to scream kept my mouth shut didn't know how to hand you over that life jacket as deluded sentences were decomposing your chest cavity so you kept navigating that river of perverted past throwing paper boats filled with fury and indictments you were that autoimmune one there is a green color groveling across your face and it doesn't bring the spring muscles are winter drained and dormant tried to wake them up by rubbing that oil through your suffocated pores no one came to see you so they clogged and you kept calling for mother while your intestines were set on fire she didn't came couldn't cry with you as I despise the rain (forgive me)
