Lying

what did you do with him today
what did you give him
can it be that you
saw him like the others
walls watch you
from all four sides
pale beige walls
painted and peeling
like burnt skin

roll up roll up
its a mystery here today
rolled up the grass
within soft blades
looking up and watching
cupping your curves
round your bones
supple under your weight
comforting in your aid

x
the helpless.
 
y
the unhelpful.
 
z
screaming for help.
 
xy
no z can mean
they’re alright,
I guess.
 
xz
there’s only one
difference, but
it’s just not right,
it feels helpless.
 
xyz
you mean everything
to me.
 
x
just leave now,
but why?

I can feel,
it’s about to come up,
it’s in my throat.
This is raw.
I’ve got the floor.
This is everything
I’ve been working for.
And, I don’t want it
now.
 
I, the girl Midas
am lonely in my
rich and sparkling world.
These words project
and
escape
my mouth is empty.
Please come save me.
