Hiraeth

I am going to die a slow death
poisoned by the dreams
I have nurtured 
in the womb of my heart
but couldn’t give birth to…

Of love that I have longed for
that has mournfully bred 
and filled every pore of my skin
of that nameless face for which 
my soul has filtered crowds…

I am going to die of the poignancy
that has clogged my brain
of the bittersweet melancholy
that I have had for company
for all these years
all these hopeless years…

          1. It’s really crazy how that works out. The best experiences of my life came when I didn’t expect them at all as well. I might post a Murakami quote about it called ‘Side Trip.’ I’m glad you like Denis Kenzo, I’ve been obsessed with him all year!
