For youFor You
I am tired and I am weak,
I cannot find the things they seek,
You can have the tears I weep,
My flesh and bones are yours to keep.
I lay my heart upon the floor,
At your feet, at your door;

This rainbow meant to persevere
Fully formed and ruling the sky.
The colours continued to swell
The brightness, the lust

There wasn't much to be filled. So to pass the time, we talked.
"You ever wonder?" Helio asked.
"About...well...what's out there." Helio and I were rooted to the stairs, quite happily, but it was awkward to move in. He kind of twisted in the general direction of the closest pore. "Out in the cytoplasm."
"I haven't," I admitted. "What's there to wonder about?"
"That's exactly the thing. I have no idea." Helio sighed, gazing into the distance. "Somehow it feels like we play this huge, huge role in something important, but how can we when we don't even know what that something is? I want to be something that, that has
