memories

  Memories taste sweeter in daydreams, but when you look at me, i forget who i am, i forget, i forget how to breathe. i’ve studied about love, under a tree, wrapped up in a quilt stitched of stars and dreamed why it seemed so easy, almost like watching tv. books stacked up high, rustling […]

Unrequited

  “is it about me? the poem you wrote about my eyes? that they hold you, keep you, sustain you? that moment when i made you smile, and i thought it was the trick of the light, could have i found the truth if i leaned a little bit closer? we never kissed, little more […]

yours

  the crush of ice, melts when your tongue traces secrets up and down my back. splintering under the heat, we need more than twisted sheets and incessant pleas when you miss me. it hurts to leave me like that; burning like a shooting star, glowing with red-glazed heat, you crashed into me like a […]

kinda

  i kinda want to sit in your car and talk about nothing and everything. you scroll through your favorite indie artists, i pretend to listen so i can hold your hand. i ask you about your dreams and passionate things, so i can follow your eyes, and watch as they burn as bright as […]

push-and-pull

It’s a give and take world Where what-ifs and maybe’s Plunder without afterthought. We push and pull from those Who smile and decay: our seeds Quiver before shooting out Like falling stars. The grass Is stained in a dollop of honeysuckle And dew, is it remiss to lean Down and take a sip? If you […]

cauterize

It was remiss, how the taste Of you on my lips, drew me in, Drowned me in unending bliss. It should be unfair, how sweet You came to me; soft kisses That disappeared on my skin like mist, You licked my wounds like tears, Flowers petals appeared, where Pain whet like stabbing fears. you pushed, […]

“you are worth the wait”

he was patient with her; he lulled her with his honest eyes, and he seduced her not with his body or lips, but with his heart. he shed his insecurities before her in a tease; layers and layers unwind with each declaration. and the show of vulnerability, the great reveal of honesty, won her almost immediately.

stained yellow walls

stained yellow walls remind me of him. he crashes through my walls whenever he smiles. when he hearts me the most, i jumble my words. actions speak louder and common sense fades from my fingertips like a spector. intelligence is a fruit that dribbles juice from its stem. a green liquid that stains and splashes […]
