Have a great life

I hope you have a great life.

Here. In this town.

Where all the beauty hides you behind these trees,

the tall ones, the prickly ones.

The ones that pick and scratch at your skin until it’s you.

Your long hands at your own scabs. The wounds that stay well hid.

The lies that cry – green eyes so big.

The lives we’ve lived.

Lost memories come back so vividly,

a smack in the face, a thrust in the chest.

Bloodstained lips, red eyes and the lies we want you to believe.

All the things no-one should see.

Here. In this town.

We make believe.
