do you ever look around

and wonder what you’re looking at


a home or

a house or

a question


this is nothing

but a haven

for the things i want to keep safe


so once again i let the music paint me

wherever it wants


sometimes i make impossible mistakes


falling in love

or missing you


so i save pieces of you

to put into this empty house question


am i a world built on your words

have i only made this my own because you’re here

and so

when i fall asleep

on the first night it’s not mine

can i close my eyes when it crumbles
