Kurtis Mast. Actor

I will not last forever

as nothing

does

the pain only cradles till it crushes

and holds the pieces

before

the road

it's not all that exists

there are exits

and trails

that have yet to be

and until I'm settled in the nothing

it will always seem to be something

other

than what's at hand

and presently the bareness of me

is all I have

to give

but I still can't help

falling in love with you

even though the sky is blue

and the balloon is the wrong color

it's full of breath

as we are too

and yet I have to let it all go
