F = G*((m sub 1*m sub 2)/r^2)

I have a bachelors degree in arts management
and maybe you have a masters in archaeology
or maybe someone has a Ph.D in linguistics
we go to school
because we do not come into this world
kicking and screaming
knowing the phonemes
and the morphemes
that we are crying out
that’s why we get a Ph.D
in linguistics

so when I talk about my therapist
and your eyes leave mine
to maybe take a peek at the floor
I don’t feel like the one that’s crazy in this moment

gravity has been on acting on you
since before you knew
that you were even
you
holding you down to the face of this earth
you didn’t have to understand
what gravity was for it to do its job
so I can see why when you feel the pull
of those emotions you can’t name
you let them take you
like gravity
down
it’s only natural

but like gravity
if you learn the formula
you can circumnavigate the rules
and find yourself
in the open air
breathing easily
and flying above
what used to hold you
