There is peace in distance.
I discover why mountain climbers
are so impatient to be vertical.
That's why clouds are so chill all the goddamn time.
I let the voice become the words.
I hide between pressed pages
and riddle myself one deconstructed metaphor at a time.
I no longer wish to be caught.
See me just out of reach.
Don't blame you.
There were too many almosts.
He told me, "I don't see you settling down."
I will settle for nothing.
I've always been this kind of girl.
