my bedroom
suffocates me,
so sometimes i climb
out the window and
curl up on the
roof
instead,
there used to be a tree
down the side that kept his
arms open for me
but he said i don't think
you're ever gonna know
how it feels to be
midas
or medusa,
you know you've
already got a heart
of gold and eyes
of stone

i said now
you
don't get
to touch me

(i can drop down into the alley from here, or sit with the cat like a gargoyle)

Love this, particularly because of the talking tree. And also, your endings are always always clever.

I'm not sold to the writing, as much as the concept and the idea. The small letters and gritty font is fine, but thats just visual. It's the Medusa and Midas, the heart of gold and eyes of stone, and that same contrast,  that makes my heart feel very big in my chest.

Strange, it makes my heart feel small and quivering.
