Red Heart Blue

Skidded down skeleton-truths
Down down down, until
I crashed myself
On a pile of
farewell smiles…
That eggshell youth…
I won’t go higher
Or faster
without my red balloons
I know, not here
on this floating feeling…
The rocket fuel for flying,
that childhood lightening
struck my blue-red heart
struck my red heart blue…
Again, again and at
the same time…
The future handles
push my ankles through,
every lost feeling too…
The energy, that energy
can never disappear,
So yesterday is still here
And I can not leave it here…

Can’t leave it anywhere.
