the hardest part is what comes after

honey, when you have achieved the ultimate goal, you should’ve known it would’ve left you wanting more…


reaching the mountaintop

is a momentous occasion, of course,

but one cannot remain there forever —

they’d freeze! they can only remain until

the exhilarating rush fades and their mind stops

pulsing with the pain of success. crawl down the jagged rocks

like a deranged, sick devil out of her mind and an insatiable desire…


honey, when you have achieved the ultimate goal,

you should’ve known it would’ve left you wanting more…


the appetite for superficial highs is something you inherited

from your grandfather, but fuck, he couldn’t understand

the kind of joy you experience running around secretly to your dreams,

to your lovers, without your parents’ permission…


but what happens when you return home? what

happens when you’re at the bottom of the mountain with nowhere to go

but forward, forced to move past the highest you’ve ever gotten…
