glowing

i apologize for the blip, the minor misuse of time and patience. i allowed you take rent in my heart, blinded by infatuation, i am happy to say that I am now over you. i do not blame you; how can i when i never told you how i felt? you went on your days […]

take your time

i wash myself in tranquility; the scent carries in my hair, my skin, my smile. i scrub away the dark thoughts, brown sugar sticky on my skin, i trace crescent moons all over my stomach. caress layers and layers of love into my tired muscles. knead the saplings of tropical trees into my curls, press […]

destroyed

i ripped myself apart, for you. i tore at my skin, scrapped the flesh from my nails, for you. the blood made my hands slippery but i pursued on, for you. the hair you once tangled in, became pulpy clumps in no time. the eyes you only complimented once were easy to gouge out; i […]

doubts surface, drown me, i reach up for breathe yet you are relentless. i crawl my way to freedom but you push my head down each and every time– no matter how much i struggle. i choke, i beg, i cry, but you block out my pain and shut your eyes and i pray.

A blip in time

I stretched my neck until it protested and creaked, the cars slipping and honking by As I teetered from a perch up way high. The silhouette of bodies entwined caught my eye as I hesitated–paused before I dived. An androgynous blob embracing under the moonlight, their shadows vague and disconcerting reflected in the bleak river […]

by my own hand

I remember when my body erupted in pleasure. At first, my body shuts down– my eyes blank, my breath loud in the sudden silence. Then, I was set aflame. My body shook greatly, a hurricane breathing its gale winds, a tempestuous tsunami crashing, stealing, wrecking with malicious intent, an earthquake splintering the earth’s plates, fracturing as […]

i blindly follow

  you used to be my tender mornings  my twinkling nights, my shy, tentative kisses and rough foreplay turning into midnight. soaked, drenched sheets must remind you of me. my pretty smile must have drove you insane, but weren’t you to blame? leading me with your love i blindly follow, trust bound across my throat, tightly-gripped, […]
