Pure

It’s a fine line between death and life,in those threads of time when I’m under you,I feel death.I die every time your hand strums my skin,every time my breath stops and I drift on a web of hypnotised ecstasy. It’s a fine line between death and life,and I wish for death when you touch me.DeathContinue reading “Pure”

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”

Hypnotized

A stubborn lip that wanted to lead,Either released or bitten between teeth.I was hypnotized by all the ways it moved,all the ways it laughed,all the ways it smiled. The first time on my neck,Head lolling,mouth agape,nerves alive.Holding on so it don’t let go. Felt as it rose to mine lipPressing nervously,then again firmly,drawing back slowly,aContinue reading “Hypnotized”

Rain For The Wicked

I don’t ask much of the universeDon’t pour libations,nor face the eastern sun,or the western wind-in salutation . I don’t ask much of the universe,don’t stay a while to listen to the trees sing,or the rain clean.The leaves have turned without me seeing,stomped on caterpillars that hoped to be butterflies. I didn’t ask much fromContinue reading “Rain For The Wicked”

Do you love me now

Praised him for his yellow roundness,the way he brightened their universe.A huge spectacle made of his presence,surprising how thin the line between adoration and hate is And sometimes he wished he wouldn’t riseThat he would dwindle and in the darkness-his ashes would be lost in the abyss . Look how the sun,how it dances forContinue reading “Do you love me now”

Fragments

I’m sorryI’m sorry that when you stare at these broken pieces…all you will see is nothingness,incomplete puzzles that don’t make sense,incomplete puzzles that you can never figure out. I’m sorry that in my joy is –a practised laugh,a rehearsed pause.In my silence are words stifled by fear,yet I have no cause to be afraid. I’mContinue reading “Fragments”

For you

His soul stills,calm found in her warm embrace,the hand rubbing sore muscles“I love you”-a song that ripples and roughens his throat.“I love you” he repeats-tearing the thorns from the rose,his blood the sacrifice it demands“For you, anything ma chérie,”he whispers in her ear,the flower tucking in her hair,luscious mane that swallows his finger.Silky threads thatContinue reading “For you”

Colour Me Your Love

It was not by the colour of our skin that our love was built,but my blood that sang to the beat of his heart. It was not by the ebony of my skin,that greatly contrasted the cream of his,But by the dancing of our bodies under the moonlight. Nor was it about the onyx ofContinue reading “Colour Me Your Love”
