Interrupting / a bullet
Talking / building a wall
Not having an answer / a deficit, a 'lack' to be filled.
You're not here to be hypnotized.
Something about going away,
extremes I imagined feeling, so I asked her
Did you just want to absorb into the foreign landscape?
Or are you relieved to be home?
Both, I bet she thought in her head
Impossible, I think to myself
To feel both of those things at once -
Maybe in moments, side by side
Why not? I can hear her asking in my head
Like two muscles pulling on the same bone
First you are stuck, trapped by those feelings
Then like a star, you implode
