that’s where it goes, that’s what it does, no one really knows exactly. you can’t say exactly. you can’t tell yourself exactly. but you know because it’s not something you can give up that easily it’s a soft set of fingers cushioning your lungs cupping your heart inhalation exhalation mandated by a mindful figure.
can you still see out the window if you look away for just a moment knowing that you can’t see anything but what’s been trapped etched drawn burned into existence now. something you can reach up and touch something you can look down at and up at and around at and know that it’s just as real as everything as is wrong.
which is saying a lot it’s saying enough it’s telling you fairy tales that ring true, they’re true in some other frame of mind but maybe not this one and maybe not today.
