limbo [ˈlimbō] (n.) 1. journey without destination. 

here in half-light the photos are flimsy at best,  crinkling like radio static: i breathe and taste  white noise. these are the liminal spaces, the  breath-in-between; they don’t make maps  this big and i’m slipping through the lines. i  sing my youth and march to a forgotten beat  still wandering, trailing after your limerence. 

a highway is no place to build a home and this  ghost town is no place for the living. not here  where the sun doesn’t bring morning  and the moon won’t bring dreams. not here,  where you peer at me though faded polaroids  and no length of film will bring you back.
