[357] Answers That Linger

The light explodes into the room⁣
burning up your skin⁣
revealing how i see you in my mind⁣
Have you ever drowned in the air ⁣
because the heaviness of the moment⁣
is sometimes too much to bear?⁣
When answers become more important⁣
than the questions we dared ask each other⁣
When our thoughts need expressions⁣
beyond the abstract to create disorder⁣
to create the new order⁣

The light dies out as if ⁣
you consumed it all ⁣
Your radiant red skin ⁣
a contradiction of what ⁣
you actually feel⁣
You speak in broken⁣
blue sentences but⁣
you think in floods that devoured villages⁣
and earthquakes that formed mountains⁣
My simple answer swirls inside your mind⁣
as the night falls and the night calls⁣
the anxiety that you fought so well⁣
that might return because I simply said 𝘯𝘰
