about

leden / january - únor / february
Leden’s ice, slick and glassy, cracks and melts. Únor sees pieces break away and plunge into the water below.

lyrics

Your tongue lashes little sharp words that start
the feathery cracks creeping across the surface of my heart.
A hairline deepens as each
I Love You
separates to lonely islands in a sea of time
until we've come so far from the last one that we're in open water.
I expect it
but it's still a surprise when it comes
a light little blow that builds inside me until it reaches those fractures and suddenly
crash
a piece is gone.
Plunging down through my feet and into the earth where I can't ever reclaim it.

Rushing blood is warm and pools through the remaining cracks
widening them with its passage.
A slow throbbing in my chest
until
crash
another piece falls away.
This heart inside my chest now incomplete
treacherous and unpredictable.

Days can pass with no movement then
a warm memory bubbling up from an old summer begins to melt my icy defences
until
crash
another piece drops
tears through my stomach
tears through the soles of my feet
another piece of me swallowed by the earth.
