Midnight Thoughts

by Eliza McGee

I'm so happy I let you dissolve within me

2016 glistens like a knife

And I'm so happy

All the way to the next year

You're so happy

Energy like lullabies resonates with us before we fall asleep

And I'm so happy in solitary

You're the sun, if that's okay


If that's okay.

I'm so happy being here, swimming in your veins

Like last summer

I heard your heart beat
