[ii still bleed blue]

three years ago ii had a blue dream
where every nuance became an extreme
if ii were afraid of bad dreams
ii would call it a nightmare
ii was asleep for at least
one summer and two

ii can fly in my dreams
and ii knew the whole time
that ii could fly away from him
but ii wanted to drown

ii escaped
ii have flirted with the stars (ii almost caught the moon last spring)
but ii still can’t breathe under water

ii know the sea is not so different from the sky
but he left me afraid to look love in the eye

… sometimes ii dive into my coldest memories
and retrace my steps
to find where ii went wrong…
