The Cracks In The Wall

written by: James Diaz



Half of knowing is forgetting

every person
who ever held themselves
came apart later that night

something in the darkness
reaches for us
the bed frame becomes wobbly
and it can suddenly hit you
how breathing isn’t really by default

something in our bodies
demands that we live

something else makes us wish that we weren’t

and the night drags on

into our own little catastrophes

and over
the scars
are asleep,

and the unnameable
lies still
in our mouths,
because for once
we want to.
