“those who do not understand true pain can never understand true peace” – pain (from naruto).
- my tomoe sees you:
you jog then run; turn the crescent moon
to a reflection
of the upside down.
you laugh; i laugh too
not wanting to understand what i already feel: just a replica
of the face you took
from my face; that is
you wore me so i
wore you backwards
to synchronize the heartbeats of the people who are dying yet,
acting like it’s all
child’s play and our feelings are
mere toys with knives ready to strip us naked: aorta by aorta.
like you won’t wake up one day and tell me, it’s over.
but still, it won’t faze me: what i already know never
haunts me, when i understand so well
two opposite emotions trapped in a body:
both, i’ve felt
both, from you.
