I ran inside


I ran inside
sharp edged steel
through the glass
pinned and broken
like a butterfly in a box

inside watching out
truth inversions
upside down lens
turning around
mind circus
I saw the world

no words
but you knew

I ran inside
riding shockwaves
tumbling and crying
only one stone
to press the light
to me

another fell
then another
and a crash
more shards

push me to the surface
drown me
save me
hold me still
until the storm
has no where left to run

you woke me up
with your smile
held my hand

I believed you
