This is How Love Feels Like |Poetry


(for Ileri)

like floating

at three a.m. 

your head is not in the right place

the wind drops its jaw

and forgets to blow

there are butterflies

tiny, colourful, 

spiralling about inside you

trap them. free them

your head should work

but its not in the right place

strange

and you’re floating. sinking.

and you’re holding on to your heart.
