a dance(why do i feel so lonely?)

 a dance done between two, a tango lacking the aromatic presence we aspire, we are off-beat, off-tune; a song rolling across the thick lashes batting your eyes, we are eternally tragic. woefully damaged. i’m exhausted, baby, and so are you. why do we continue to stand on stage, pretend this is love, and fuck and fight […]

forsaken(by the sun)

Forsaken (by the sun) 8/12/2020 size does you  no justice;  your very presence takes up space. makes me lose my breath. dizzy, spinning, your arms, secure, catch me. intimidation or attraction–i take notice. eyes unfocused for so long–i thought i needed glasses. but with you,  i focus. no need for a lens, i can picture […]

me without you

there is no me without you;
 my dreams have always been
 about you; anointed, i am 
dizzy, i fall asleep with a smile 
on my face. reluctant, i wake up
 angry because i was ripped 
away from you; your embrace 
is all i need. tangible quandaries 
disappear and words like i 
love remain corporeal. you […]

conversations with him: 0.05

my first thought is you, when I open my eyes, alone in my bed. when you fuck her, I pray for your health, wrapped in my frustrations and jealousy, alone in my bed. It used to ache, the pain but I’ve learned how to live with it, bleeding profusely from a wound that has me […]

weeping candles

she shivered when you left the door open. every whisper and snicker, kept her awake. she tossed and turned, crossed her legs and prayed. she thought of you, candles weeping in the late, she prayed for your wellbeing, your health, she prayed for strength; the candlelight, burned her hair, the scent carried like ripe dates. […]

transfixed

You were so transfixed with how the firelight touched my eyes… you were the wick to my candle; with each smile, you melted every time 🔥🌸 @amateur__poet

heaven-sent

<heaven-sent> we dance around the subject, so misguidedly. you want me, i want you, i want to rest my thighs over your face and watch as you lap my at my secrets like a drowning man. i want you to take me without abandon, hair pulling, as you choke me without any hands. prowling through […]
