As The LoverYou whisper
Beautiful lies into my bloodshot, swollen eyes
As you dab the blood off my flesh, where it had been running down my neck.
when the day is done i'll be goneIn my fingertips is the devil
Daring me to touch what is not to be touched
And I care not, reaching through my own open ribcage
To touch what lies between inflating balloons that are my lungs-
In my ears echo your voice,
Begging me not to reverse the corruption in my heart
And I care not, reaching between my lungs to grasp my heart with my inked fingers
To release the sigil stitched deep into the veins of my heart.
To The One Whom My Heart Belongs ToOh how I long to open my eyes
To see your beautiful face next to mine
Oh how I long to brush my fingertips across your cheek
Against your jaw
Down your neck
To your chest-
To feel your heart beating away;
The heart that keeps mine willing to keep beating too
Oh how I long to bring you breakfast in bed-
Waffles browned to perfection,
Ripened strawberries placed ontop
With a can of whipped cream on the side, yes the whole can just for you
With your favorite mug of your favorite coffee with rose petals upon the surface
And I long to be the one to dab some whipped cream on your nose
Just so I can be the one to kiss it off
And oh how I long to braid your fingers together with mine
As we walk down to the market to buy
Makings for dinner and dessert,
And maybe some wine?
“But of course” I imagine you’d say
Oh how I long to be the one who brightens up your day
Who gets to see your luscious lips turned up at the corners
And oh how I long to be the one with
Permission to kiss t
Broken BurnsI curl up in the shelter that is my bed
And pull the covers over my head
My body is grateful for this simple type of rest
My mind is sleeping, there are no thoughts at best
I forgot my caramel coffee with a cup of sugar on the bedside table
My shaking hands take up the mug, they are nowhere near stable
And as to prove that, my coffee spills and stains my shirt
In the same sort of way that you stained my heart.
On How Not To Become Attachedi. Close the gates to your heart
Gates, not walls, make it so you can still feel a little but
Don’t you dare open that lock
ii. Don’t ask how they are
Only talk about the subject at hand- like a game, a poem, a book
Don’t delve further- stay in the well-lit part of their life
iii. And when they’re nice
Tell yourself they’re nice to everyone, that you’re no different, don’t you dare think you’re different
You’ll never be different
iv. It’ll be a pleasant sort of empty for a while
But when you find yourself lingering on their words it’s time to go
v. Just don’t be like me
Don’t write this, or repeat it over and over again with every intent of following through
And then just abandoning it,
Don’t do that.
When you lose a best friendWhen we said friends forever and
crossed pinkies like grade-schoolers,
I could only believe those words
lodged in your heart
like they did mine
because every time I think back
I can't help but remember the
under star lit constellations,
and study sessions where we
learned more about each other
than we did Biology
but now it's clear
that each beat of your heart
has made those words fade,
and you could care less
about crossed pinkies
but I'll still see you,
and hear your voice
and I'll still wish
the meaning hadn't changed-
Forgiveness takes twoThe words are struggling
to tumble off my tongue,
and despite having
a fleshy cushion
to rest on,
they stain my teeth
and sting like acid
"I'm sorry," I stutter,
but the bitter taste
doesn't leave my tongue-
not because the words weren't true,
but because I know
I won't hear,
She's an artistShe's an artist.
Always seems to be daydreaming,
She draws to escape her pain.
Cause for a single moment,
When her work is done.
It seems like there is no more rain.
And she could finally touch the sun.
The one that shines so brightly in her paintings.
But then it's gone,
So she keeps drawing,
She's become good at escaping.
Running from reality.
Because dreams are the only things she wants,
Her imagination is the only thing she's ever known.
And it's sad really...
Because she tries so hard to be happy.
But the most beautiful thing she could ever create.
Was that smile upon her face,
And that is the one thing that remains blank.
Waiting to someday be something more than,
At peace within this tranquil garden,
I picture the moments where I've made you smile.
Those times are endlessly precious to me,
I think they're worth the while.
They're worth the time I've spent with you,
Even if it wasn't long.
I only wish I'd spent a little more,
Before our love was gone.
Mommy Is A Super HeroMommy Is A Super Hero
Standing before his class, he held his tiny report,
“Who is your super hero?” Was written in yellow chalk on the green board.
Exhaling his breath, the curly haired boy closed his little eyes,
“Don't be ashamed of yourself” His mother's words rung in his ears, “And don't ever cry.”
He began to read aloud, with a shaky voice.
to his class, he told his mother's story.
At age fifteen, she was a beauty queen,
the most beautiful girl in all of the world.
She flaunted her silky hair, bore her bare legs,
prided her breast. The boys treated her like she was a treasure chest.
They respected her rules, they “looked, but didn't touch”,
but there was one older man, who from her, wanted too much.
All alone he met her, he approached her in the alley,
and all his mother told him, was that this man had treated her badly.
But what the boy didn't know was that she was taken against her will,
and that two months later, she turned up ext

was triggered by a blunt pair
of scissors, sparking violently
against the lightning,
shaking in the wind.

tattooed with no ink but
the dark bleakness
of an overcast morning,
infiltrating uniformed wrists.

shaky raindrops rioting

the second storm
wept a two year downpour
outline that dripped from wrist
to hip, sidelong silhouette glances
obscured by the rain.

frozen, until icy glass
fell in stained shards from
the stillness inside.
thinner, brittler, growing
in flurries of sleet and hail,
her outline was never filled,
though the floods threatened
the third thunderstorm
was a mist-ridden melancholia,
a dream for permanence
smeared in ink through
fueled by the hope
that just this once,
the rain would spark a
rebirth beneath the ground.
instead, a tsunami
washed away the ink
