“Our breath finally rests and dreams” – Nayana Nair

it rains in my heart

.

on the sunlit lips
my breath finally rests
and death is what i bring
to you and to myself.
what do you wish to kill?

there is an ocean
filled with marvels and horrors

inside you and me.
there are voices and monsters.
there are mutated versions of us
hiding from the light of our eyes,

hiding in the caves,
hiding in the breath of mermaids.
hiding, always hiding in most beautiful places,

guarding the breathing corpses of us,
killing our worlds with our every breath.
this is their power over us.
this is the say we will never get to have.
but today, what do you wish to kill?

hold this poison.
hold my hand.
tell me what you dream of.
tell me of something that can be begun
only by finding a end.
tell me a story that only starts with us.
