Barter

I want to trade my

Inability to surrender

For the metaphors

That dissolve like sugar

In your mouth

And my fearlessness

For your ongoing

Conversation with despair

My fixations in return

For all the ideas you have

Swimming in your mind

Like an aquarium of

Arteries giving you life

My patience for your

Collective instincts

And how you chase them

With utmost hope in you eyes

And my silence for

Every sin you committed

And all those

One Last Times.
