I Wish I Could See You [Alt]

by Nora Nygard

The Portal exclusive


I wish I could see you
speaking to me
saying anything

all alone on your birthday
going broke
losing your mind

maybe we'll never spend
another afternoon together

looking at the flowers
and trees in the conservatory

I've been isolated
most of my life
I caused this
opened the portal
and it manifested

I wish I could see you
walking through the canyon
cigarette in one hand
mountain in the other

I can't recover memories
of my brother
tell me about him
I want to know who he was
before you and I disappear
from this Earth

I wish I could see you
you're welcome in my dreams
it's hard to remember you
I doubt you remember me

I wish I could see you
I wish I could see you

I've always been searching. Drumming in punk bands. Singing into a cassette mic alone. Trans angst, alienation, going on the road. Synthesis, tape, poetry. Two failed tours, two failed degrees. Reclaiming my voice from the choir, reshaping my voice after punk rock. Years of isolation, hormone therapy, production studies, and hundreds of releases with various projects. ... more
