Martyr and Anti-Martyr

As I lay awake, I realized without moving that I loved what I could have and what I couldn’t have. Insatiable.

It was a tiny revelation. I looked at my life and saw I had everything I needed and all that was left was for me to fall asleep to that tune.

Waterfalls are my favorite thing. A river falling down the edge of something and it flows and it goes. It roars. Gentle violence.

A mouth wetting lozenge that slowly goes away. The last of its kind for now. A blissful moment where I thought to myself I could wake up with it.
