Hayley Gibbons

there are the words you shouldn't


stars wonder life heart breath forever

light realize even feeling heard death

and sometimes was, and often that,

definitely never soul, unless it's tuesday or the rent is due

and we regret and all's not lost

and next time - when you're really you!
