The fall to float

Bisma Jan

I don't feel comfortable in lying down,
What you call;
"Being at ease",
for me some part has to be numb.
When I'm lying down,
My head should hang from the bed,
My hair touching the ground.
I like it when I can't anymore feel my
neck and head,
just the inevitable gravity.
I like it when my arms fall numb, hanging.
I only fall to float!

  • I don’t know or perhaps I don’t want to know how do you write such stuff like it’s piercing the heart and expressing it all. I don’t have words. I love you!
