    i.
    it's spring, now, and things
    are turning beautiful
    again, changing and leaving me behind, but
    they will come around, they
    will learn to wilt the way that
    i have. but that is not beautiful, it is the image of
    things which have a need to move on -
    i need to move on.

    ii.
    things are growing, they are
    changing, and i am standing there
    with a camera amidst a white-knuckled
    grace, hidden between the skin
    that's breaking because a soul wants to learn to
    fly again. my lens might not be cracked
    ( just yet ) but i don't have
    any pictures to show for a day
    the sun reared it's ( ugly ) head.

    iii.
    even words know how to move -
    a book is twenty-six letters, they are over-
    and-over-again, but they are different
    every time the page
    tires and turns. i am the same
    book, the same letter, it will not change
    the way i am - this book will never
    have a sequel.

    iv.
    music has a pattern all it's
    own, but my bones will never be a
    symphony, i will never be an orchestrated
    wonder, only chaos; this destruction
    comes and goes, but sometimes
    it likes to stay the night, sleeps on the
    couch with loneliness while i watch over them
    until the sun closes my eyes. even when
    i'm not alone i am a singularity, i am
    one, and that is not
    good enough anymore.

    v.
    this world breathes more than i
    do, moves its chest so that life pumps through
    it's veins; but i am cold, i am dead ( i think )
    even though this mind is moving, and
    this bitterness doesn't have a home ( my body was
    its temple, was it's grave, but i'm
    my own grave, now )
i think my stars are going out

They're the most personal out of the five, that must be why. c:
