we will run
directionless but on
until the sky recedes before us.

we will outlast the horizons
sink teeth into every sunset
until we chase
what chases us--
until the oceans below hold no demons
the galaxies above
no shadows.

we will lose ourselves
to frantic
fleeting space
until there is nothing left of us but
souls and
destinations.
First poem of 2013.

I owe Sam Beam a drink for stealing his words for a title, but hey, that's okay. I'd buy Sam Beam a drink anyway.

This is my absolute favorite piece of poetry by you so far. Maybe favorite piece period. This is the kind of poetry to put in the front of a book, or write on a wall, or memorize and recite. I don't even normally like poetry, how do you make me feel these things?!

Sounds like something you would recite if you were on an endless roadtrip. Or a nomad endlessly walking through Africa, Europe and Asia. <3

sink teeth into every sunset

--sink teeth sounds fantastic anywhere but coupled with sunset it makes a rather rapacious action seem elegant though still passionate.

I really like the spirit in this and the cadence of it. Makes me think of a particular music video featuring children (payed with pizza, hehe) running through a forest with adorned with homemade costumes.

Beam is the best. I'd buy him a drink too.

Thank you. :heart:

That sounds like something Sigur Ros would do--am I right?

Drinks all 'round! :love:
