wishbone 04:39
you soak up all my sunlight till I'm only a hard rind and you wonder why im so mean tug of war with the soft parts of me I feel like a wishbone that youve gambled on in your family home i feel like a pest in your warmly swarming nest I feel like a penny in your fountain of missed opportunities I feel like a pet in your zoo of regret tendrils strewn around the room pink rose petals white tile bathroom storm whirling out on the street rattle my ribcage till I feel something
