moving through, and be silent.

“the only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. and the only thing people regret is that they didn’t live boldly enough, that they didn’t invest enough heart, didn’t love enough. nothing else really counts at all.”
- ted hughes

“you swallowed the light.

you swallowed it,

and all the children in all the villages

came down from the mountains 

singing about the north star

and how they saw it in your belly.

this is what you do.

you take a broken thing and you

make it more broken.

you eat the stars and lick your fingers.

you lead a small army of lost boys into oblivion

because you are too lonely to tell them

that you haven’t figured out where you’re going.

blame the bad days.

blame the ghosts

and all the monsters your father warned you about.

you want to be the hero, and you’re

trying, but this is bigger than you

and you can’t put your fist through it.

not this time.

you swallow the light because

you think you can keep it safe.

the lost boys are still lost boys

but now and they ask questions that you can’t answer.

you swallow the light and try not to choke around the burning.

pretend it’s whiskey.

pretend it goes down smooth.

you’re trying to be the hero but you’ve forgotten how to be gentle.

you’re trying to be the hero but maybe

you’re just the man with a fist for a mouth.

maybe you’re the lost boy.

maybe you’re the one that needs

to be saved.”

- caitlyn siehl, the hero

“i’ve been smoking a lot

and starting to doubt

if i’m breathing you in

or smoking you out.”

“you are made

out of comets

and stars.

do not surround

yourself with those

that treat you like

dirt and dust.
