In certain light it appears like the curving jagged contour of a country traversing the tip of my nose and running across my lips. In the summer months, when the sun falls across it with heat, the line lightens, a drip of milk, a pale pencil drawing. I used to hide it with my hand. [...]
Permission to think
to explore what is and was always inside you.
Limited by the mind of another, so
he might capitalize
and institutionalize on what he couldn’t do
Simple and honest
like gravity and oxygen.
Nothing makes since without you here.
I know as well as what hold me to the ground
that you are to be in my life
Lips parted so willingly
as the others passed across her neck.
Passion and lust so closely entwined
that the heat from their bodies
is beyond what their senses can accept.
Each edge of the bed felt like it was a million miles high.
I panicked as she turned over, rolling towards the side.
I knew the second that she reached her destination,
she’d be gone forever
but I couldn’t stop her.
Pressed into another corner
she feels the urge to run.
Everyone tells her to relax,
that this is normal,
you should be happy.
But who’s happy with walls
behind their back
hands at their shoulders
and cuffs on both their fingers?
Longing for tomorrow is making today feel so much longer. I bask in the sunlight hoping that it’s rays can warm me like your smile, but they never do.
Longing for tomorrow is making today feel so much longer. I bask in the sunlight hoping that it’s rays can worm me like your smile, but they never do.
The couch gave under my naked back
and your hands felt sweet on my chest.
The glue between our skin was wet and drying.
Your taste still rang on my tongue.
Heart beats turned into centuries
as Wilson stood in the street.
With the blood of the others under his feet
he stepped toward what he knew would be
the last thing he ever did.
The trade was so quick
Her fingers grazed mine
and as I looked up to see her face
I could already feel my hand longing for her touch again.
Then she smiled, as if she could hear
my knuckles begging.
The clips fell into the sink,
pieces of him he no longer needed.
And each one fell so easily,
The bar was wet and cold on Joe’s forehead. He couldn’t believe that the place where Jenn and fell into his life, literally, would be the place he saw her for the last time. That night she slipped and landed in his lap ran so vividly through his mind simultaneously as he watched her clumsily [...]
The only chance he had
was to let everything go.
He left his baseball mit
his favorite hat
his mothers kiss…
Everything was behind him now.
What was ahead was beyond
his mind could go.
But his feet would go forever.
The root of the problem wasn’t that Edmond was never home in time for dinner, it was that when Julie woke up in the morning she would find Ed sitting on the edge of the bed staring at the wall as if he was trying to make it look like somewhere else. Some mornings she [...]
The music leaped into my ears
and spread through out my limbs.
The movement, so genuine and free.
As the band played, I glide past your feet
and dive into your smile.
Dancing never felt so natural.
The antlers were strong
sturdy coat hangers that
we always relied on
and never realized that
they weren’t actually ours.
The feelings went from strong to intense
as the elephant sat right on her face
and her lips parted like the flood-gates
The words just slipped out
… like I meant them.
The blood flooded my face as the truth
came clear in her eyes.
The fear turned to disgust
and the truth wrapped around both our throats
and took us.
