flesh that is mine…
your skin„,wrapped around me………..always felt
i was inside you…….
you never have to admit……..the way you look at me…

Then where should you stand to begin with?
And when the falling’s done
How bad should you plan to get injured?
And if you land on your feet
Do it count as a fall or a jump?
And do it feel like a fall
When the hands that pushed you were holding you up?” —Mos Def - Pistola (via ekstatics)
