numb. when i close my eyes all i see is deep reds and oranges. and i am tired. and the sounds flood my bloodstream. keeping emotions bottled is required. don’t you see? i don’t have the liberties you have. i now hide, i squirm in the covers to find a cool place. weakened with restraint.Continue reading “your liberties”

patient and sleeved inside a strong arm. fingertips wet, dripping with possibilities. it rests awhile when all else is busy. quiet and thoughtful, it aches for submersion. while the sun rises high, and bodies move quick. its calm, magnetic. and it draws me in tight, closer. and as it transforms itself into static, it quiversContinue reading “patches”
i caught that. found your hard side, slipped through my cracks like water, it did. and you meant none of it, i know. but i caught it. it slid down my chest, right into my belly. easy with the balloons that were already there. caused breathlessness. my likeness. and i can’t tell you. paranoia. learnedContinue reading “caught”
rushing into it, i’m running for your presence. delicate in the texture of fingertips, i shine to meet the preference. just give it to me, give me what i need now. imagine the life set, open arms follow sunny embraces. i can almost feel the reassurance, like honey all over me. enveloped in the idea,Continue reading “untitled”
a light shining
you’re the unexpected. a light shining in a cold, dark room. you’re the blessing. frightening and needed, slowly penetrating the core of my heart i anxiously wait for each minute, when i can see this picture more clearly. hoping and wanting more of you, this insight consumes. unlikely in the beginning, i was lukewarm andContinue reading “a light shining”
goodbye love memories scream soft against this void dreamless into frantic summer after you smear the past girl shot trust whines but the moons stars sun purr like music for her the sound sweet silent listen she became that rock over moments since.
pushing at the center, it creeps up into my throat. lodging itself until i can’t breathe anymore. i found the problem tonight. burning a hole into the bed i lay in, quiet enough to terrify my insides and sew my lips closed so that i could not verbalize a word. tonight i cut myself offContinue reading “tonight”
a post is a post
fibers stretch to reach each other.. colors blend with one another.. masks slip to show the feeling.. we choose to breathe on our own. the sun shines to keep what’s living.. and night falls to free the eager love reminds what falls beneath constantly hiding behind our eyes. so how do we end up whereContinue reading “a post is a post”
we move like..
you make me complicated.. delicate… involved. and my silence weakens our strength… moving through nonsense, the minutes roll by our dignity. caught up in levels that burn the capacity. washed away the solid foundation.. built on a pedestal, amounted to no good. trouble maker. you mask the cause. revolved on a whim. balanced by love. reflected by faults. Continue reading “we move like..”
i bloom in the texture of you. make room for the moments to breathe in your light and hide softly in its warmth. hungry fingertips take all that you allow me to feel. and i hide. frozen eyes bleed for your nourishment and you fall softly into my presence. keeping me cool and calming theContinue reading “movements”
