if ever were I to have a lover
it would be with my pillowcase--

it has seen me at my messiest,
sprawled out raw and bleeding
as wrenching sobs vibrate
through my chest and my fingers
are white knuckled and numb from
grasping at my slipping reality 
just a little too hard. 

it has seen me blank and reeling
as I contemplate my finite existence
amongst quagmires of
stars in the small hours of the 
morning when sleep has left 
me to combat my landmind
thoughts alone as I build
and break myself into
bite-size quantums.

it has seen me in my rarest of forms,
when my body feels like its
catching fire as a radiant
buzz unwinds the reluctant 
knots that have settle in my bones
and i can feel that stupid grin 
parting my lips so that
I may let my quiet world know
how truly content I am. 

if ever were I to have a lover
it would be with my pillowcase
because knows me
better than anyone else. 
day seven: Pillowcase, Journey, Wake
