Absurdity

When heaven sunk and you were with it,it pressed your head to its bosom;Let you close your eyes and imagine,that you were still matter…You were still matter.Maybe it was your destiny;to drown with heaven,to find an end beyond the complacency of life,to stretch vocal cords with the angels,one of something,part of a whole. When hellContinue reading “Absurdity”

The Myth of Time

One day we will look back to those daysIced tea in our hands;something to cool our veins as our blood races home.One day we will look back,nothing in our palms but webbed lines that point home,but home is empty and the chickens didn’t come home to roost,the hearth is cold and the ashes were blownContinue reading “The Myth of Time”

Between Life and Death

Hello my sun,I have waited for you in the pages of this book,the spaces between my breathsAnd the whispers engulfed in the darkness.I have held you in my dreams every night,I have caressed your skin in your dreams. My sun,I have prayed that you remain bright ever.I have prayed that the darkness does not drawContinue reading “Between Life and Death”

Pain’s lover

My bones are lead,a fresh sacrifice on pain’s altarTime is a punisher,laughing at me with its hourly seconds…Hot then frigid,when the door opens and darkness swoops in.Only I feel his breath on my cheek,Like river water caressed by papyrus;Caressing me so,”do you love me so?”My hands are lead,housing fragile skin that breaks at the glazeContinue reading “Pain’s lover”

Mirror

HeyWhy do you have wrinkles?They stretch down,fold your smile…close your eyes…when you smileCan’t look up without that fold between your eyes.You don’t want it anymore?You don’t feel sensual and sexualWhat if like him they go from obsession to indifference?You were pretty once. Now… when you look in the mirror,your face stretches downWhen you look inContinue reading “Mirror”

Felicity

Maybe I will want to replay memories with you,amidst the static and the echoing distanceJust so I can trace myself back to those memories.Will you be okay?Will I be okay? Can I lie on your chest,Pretend I can hear your heart beat and close my eyes?Hold you tight and smell your skinLegs tangled with yours,HeadContinue reading “Felicity”

Rainy Thoughts

Almost like I stopped trying when you stepped,became unfeeling because feeling left me hangingNow I sometimes go to your IG…sometimes your tiktok finds its way to me,and I look at your smile,and how you’ve changed your style…And I look at where you are,How expensively they treat you,How hard you smile,how beautiful makeup looks on you.FridayContinue reading “Rainy Thoughts”

Rainy veil

When did it start?” The question gently flows out of my mouth, mimicking the rain falling just outside the window behind his back. I watch as it kisses and caresses the window, before slowly being sucked in by the soil. It would be completely silent if not for the staccato laughter of children in theContinue reading “Rainy veil”

Failed

On this path again I tread alone…Familiar dark feelings embrace me,pointing to forgotten corners and alleys.Their eyes I avoid,afraid of what I’ll see there;their love that I ran from,the darkness and ugliness I felt free from. In a life far from this path,I loved.I found someone I’d be good enough for.Other feelings embraced me,brighter andContinue reading “Failed”
