it’s all in my head, it’s all in my head
the only light in the room came from the computer screen and the candles that i kept on my desk to refrain my eyes from getting too sore while i worked, late thursday night. i put the top down, and the reflection in my pupils went from a sliver of silver to the heaviest of browns.
i lit a cigarette and kicked my feet up onto the edge of the desk, leaning back and breathing the fresh air of two in the morning in. the air is so clean that late at night, when no one is awake to pollute it. the only ones that are up at the time are those stumbling drunkards from bars galore or the insomniacs, neither category of which i’d ever fit into for years.
