the sun sets in the places down below

we all walked together
across the sand
to a place
that was promised

i felt the way you felt
inside my mind
taking up all the space
but fitting in
so perfectly
into all the cracks
and accidents
i have made
along the way

every scratch
and needle
every time
the record skipped

each moment
has made a mark
on my surface
and in my depths
it is because of the marks
that you recognize me
a language
you can understand
these scratches
and imperfections
these human hieroglyphics
you can see drawn
in the caves
where my story is kept

and you don’t feel the need
to reach for meaning
you just reach for me
