Soak

Updated: Aug 24, 2022

An ode to a colossal pillar of love.


Visual released from Studio Ghibi


give me your pain,

that furious waterfall,

which they inflict upon you,

so i can soak it up,

like a yolk sponge,

and take it away,

gently letting it go,

and watching it melt,

down the chrome drain

trickling slowly,

with our tears.
