Victory Dance
Victory Dance

Let me dance my
Victory dance around the anarchy that crumbles
Inside me.
Rubber band arms stretch far out
Collision
Rejection
Dismantle this machinery of misery, let each bolt fall loose and scatter
I will never feel this way again.
Barefoot
Squelch and grass below my untravelled feet,
I see the world in the ink of the sky.
No vastness of blue
No expanse of green, no depth of your mud eyes will be as
Large as my insides.
Fireballs curl around
Chaos,
Transformed
Moulded into melting sand
My skin unravels and sinks into
Nothingness.
