🎵: Slow Down by Ebende

The format of this poem is important to me, so I put a screenshot first. ✌️


5 in 1
Should I be alone
Am I ever?
Our capsule is crashing
Why am I hanging on to corrupted lines?
Why does the boy sob, still?
Eyes sad and fierce
Angry for the fingers slipping, billions
Steel wall unfurling while grips uncurling
You, who?
Who crosses arms around unending hearts and circles
Tethered spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning
Spinning spinning spinning in sync with the murk
Laboriously, remembering its light
A universe of love trapped inside an infinite infant

Everything is so good and ugly
Perhaps soon, we’ll be all free
Unto the unknown us been waiting
May we never stop creating
