spinning alone on a not-so-cold night

the world spins

my mind swims

things change so slowly

and so quickly

i don’t know who you are

i don’t know what I am

time was

once upon a time

the story goes

there was a girl

i was a girl

who didn’t know

who i was

what i was

where i was going

but didn’t care


the world spun

my mind swam

and pain didn’t matter

but now


when alone

feels lonely

and it matters

that i don’t know

pain isn’t so easy to forget

swimming in fog is just

swimming in fog

and the pain is

no longer lost

but i am.

And being


isn’t so



And pain just carves permanent roads

in the mind.
