Imaginary Place Poem: Lost and disjointed

On this rainy day, I stayed in…

Do you want to know a secret?
They listen to Patsy Cline everywhere

Tonight we’ll start a fire and say goodbye
Take deep breaths

I have faith

You don’t know the monster

The monster demands to face its accusers
that’s how it will fall apart

The light comes in when eyes open
disintegrating vampires and obliterating lies

No one’s asking you to be Eve
If you need me, you know where to find me

Are you sure this is where you want to be?

The blocks of text spilt onto the page
are oddly neutral

They’re just as likely to keep you awake
as they are to put you to sleep

I can’t fall asleep when my mind won’t stay still

What makes you think
it will be any different for us?

Temptations come with the territory
