Do I? I do!

I took a shower.
It was the bravest thing I ever did
after swallowing 5 kinds of fruit
and taste
Nothing/
Nothing
Is permanent. The dew drops
always find their way back to the heavens
and the heart always find reasons
to not stay
constant/
constant
is what you made me feel when you
held my wrists so gently
I thought it was the air whispering
a soft lullaby to my
hands/
hands
have a funny way of remembering.
They can see through people
even in the dark, they collect stuff,
like memories and scars and
love/
love
is something that I have held so dearly
that my chest never feels empty
even when I have nothing
to protect it with, I mean nothing but
laughter/
laughter
is a privilege. I spit it out
in bits and pieces,
I have but little
of it left in
my stomach/
my stomach
is full of ghosts from the past
and I do not know what are they
doing to my taste buds,
look at all these fruits
and look at me unable to taste them,
I really don’t/
I really
don’t
mean to love someone like that,
but do I/
I
I do.
