I wish everything was possible.
but some shooting stars nosedive.
You are an oak tree sturdy and worn
scuffed up at the edges and yet
you are strong arms and safety
when the monsters come to play
and I am feeling naive again
I have done these things a hundred times
I slip into insanity, feel it’s sleekness on my skin
It feels so new, but I’ve worn it before-
On the happy hours and sad nights when
beer is my lover and we fall asleep together,
knowing he’ll be gone […]
To crave is such a distinguished feeling from other emotions. With sadness and happiness, it’s temporary. We can “feed” our feelings and change them. But to want something, well….
It’s like a hunger that never wanes.
Handing out fate at the end of the line
So far behind everyone else
Can’t help but wonder about the destinies left over
what’ll it be this time?
what’ll it be this time?
Spitting out your insides shouting
what the fuck do i care!
and i rest on the seat in your breakfast nook
and i rust there, on your French pastry chair
and die a little
How do I even begin a conversation with you? We’re so alike, so in love, and so completely different that I feel like the weather is all we share.
This first date of ours will be awkward, cute, and confusing as […]
I am happy.
Happy is peace
dimpled smiles and
cool steady breezes.
Happy is boring.
Give me a reason,
Any alibi will do,
to make me come back
and suffer along side you
like I always do.
Grief is a house without windows,
Grief is a house where the living room
and the owners are sleeping, always sleeping.
Scars don’t hurt like they began.
There’s nothing physical to them,
The agony is purely mental-
A scary story told gentle.
So then, tell me?
Why do I suffer so
When I see you pass me by
If my heart has […]
My eyes grow,
my lungs are swollen balloons
“Is this happening?”, I ask myself
“Whattayasay?”, you ask myself
a foot tapping,
you put your hand in mine
and my heart […]
SPLASH- a puddle wraps around my ankles.
GUSH- the sound of galoshes
CHIRP- a tweet from a feathered friend that wishes to say hello.
Take my heart, scrape it, clench it in your hands,
I am weak clay in them,
I am just mud if left alone.
Shape me in an image, capture your thoughts,
I am tangible, I am real if you make me so.
So create me, I […]
It covered her. Soot was everywhere, the fire had burned the city to the ground; her world, her life, her everything, was a powdered ash that hovered in the skies.
This damage you’ve caused, it broke me.
I am a snapped branch after the hurricane,
and you were the storm.
Your eyes were lightning that hit me in daze and
separated my soul and body.
Your words hit me like […]
I want to breathe you, your rough dense skin interlooped in my hands. The smell of pine and sex and leather and papercuts.
I want to keep you safe, trap you in my arms,
here there’s no escape.
here there is no harm
I’ll lock your fragile heart up in a tomb,
birth your sweet memory from the womb
and on we’ll go, into the sun, into […]
Light me up, shake me down, rotate this frown
see the silver lining in the clouds
and we’ll go up, up, up in flames
