I think I was once your sister
I remember you in my room
When we made somber deals and pacts
Took turns to stroke each other’s backs
Because we needed to be touched
Because we needed to be enough

I think I was related to you
I watch your children bickering
Easily free, they are themselves
Easily kind, their softness tells
But you and me, we hurt ourselves
We are still dumb to each other

I think I loved my sister once
So long ago I’ve forgotten
Her life lies still inside my heart
Her heart still feels a beat apart
I am breathing and she knows me
Her blood still runs away from me
