if i come back from this, promise, to never let me go again. promise to tell me it will be ok. more than ok. remind me of everything i used to see. how it moved me so much i had to hold onto it. how i smiled so often, some sideways smile that we all recognised. outstretched arms. reaching to the sky. how the pain held my heart like mercury and i was satisfied to feel.
how my feet told my story.
