Circumference Hymn

Chief among us is the sweet,

And sour to us this hour—

 

To strike down, finish this

Or run away and leave nothing

 

For every girl I have ever loved,

I have hated for just as long

 

Should I forgive

The ones who left me?—

 

The ones who never did?—

She was one of them…

 

I was the not-alone

But I felt that way anyhow

 

Shoulder-length and tied back

Black hair sugar-sweet and sad

 

Laughter once echoed here, now,

She only hums when she prays

 

I suffocate and scrounge—

She advocates for the found

 

My life was once hers but now it’s just mine

A sound I make in the dead of night

 

My lungs are forbidden to breathe

Vapors embrace from within some cavity

 

She is evolving and I’m revolving around

The same goddamn feelings that aren’t worth anything now

 

So I digress, and ingest

Suggest a change of address

 

It’s time to move on.
