“The meaning doesn’t matter” by Sasha at Bowmore

The meaning doesn’t matter
what this means or that means
what the hidden meaning is
buried in the coral and the mistletoe
What matters is the feeling in the centre
the feeling in the place between belly
and chest
encased by ribs that hold it all together
even when there is no together

A city is falling
this city of mine
in my skyscraping
tumble down
fall from where I thought I’d be
how I thought I’d be
who I thought you to be
who you really are

Mirror image the earth
mirror image reflected in the need
for unimaginable bravery
saying “Yes”
choosing “Yes”

I wonder
dear reader
if you’re sick of me
If you’re tired of the same thing
over and over and over and over

But that’s how this works
return

Return
return
