  • He turned me down
    I then downturned another
    Who then downturned her
    The paralyzing juice of rejection
    His veins full of lead
    He's left with loving what he lost
    More than what he has

    My snakeskin, cold in the dark
    But warms up in the light
    I then upturned a green-eyed giant
    Who upturned and entered me

    Will we stop seeing what unites us
    But only what differs?

    The ghosts of old loves
    Hovering around his orifices
    His orifices

    As you narrate your own heart-tale
    You thread souls into one beam
    The love you gave and have been given
    Weave into your own dream
    I trust myself to re-archive
    My love historic stream Writer/s: Björk Guðmundsdóttir
