I Turned Into Bright Carbon! I Became for You a Diamond!

REMEMBER that time I     flick  wrote something on your      flick     hand as you were
leaving and   flick   you said why are you writing on my  flick  hand and I didn’t say
Anything   but just kept   flick   kept inking your hand into   flick   constellations   that
caused a riot in your blood   match  you have no clear recollection of when   flick   my
mouth became a pack of matches and    flick    you lit my     flick     you lit my mouth
flick  you lit my mouth with your mouth  flick  and turned into the brightest flash  burn
of carbon denouement
