Death by Fire

I am the fury that burns through your veins, I am the shadow that chases you, the smog shielding your eyes cannot protect you from the truth. The truth is you are unworthy; unworthy of your first breath, the exhilarating flutter of your heartbeat, and the shivering hope of your soul that makes you uniquely weak. […]

A Garden for the Meticulous

A Garden for the Meticulous, the weirdos who like their things stacked one by one, numbered and labeled, cleaned, bleached, steamed, folded all in the right, proper places. I have waited centuries for the flowers to bloom in accordance to your desires. To fancy a beast, a garden, sedulously and scrupulously bred for your peace of […]

2:52 am

At this lonely hour, 2:52 and my mind continues to wander. My heart is torn in two As I listen to the radio, My heart aching at the strum Of a sad rhythm and blues. Pause–as he croons of heartbreak. Nod my head as she screams A Valkyrie’s cry for revenge. Dark and troubled, The ether […]

Enchanted

Enchanted by your presence, damneded by your testy resolve, I know no remedy to this happenstance but I can only await my lovers return, flesh whetted with mulberries and thistle eyes frosted with remembrance.

Boring girls, tell pretty lies. Manipulated-bated breath, I can only follow along, dragged behind their sashayed swaggers.

A contorted “smile”, that creaked and wrinkled to my untrained eyes, tinkling, nauseating “laughter” that made […]

I lost myself in the thralling tides, The mystique of the sands, And the bearded man of Time. Enthralled with legends, ballads and myths About girls with dark eyes And bandits who crave one wish. The twinkling stars told me lies, And the night bled magenta A thick, sweet dye- Promising to fulfill a vendetta, […]

in my presence

he was tall before many but fell short in my presence. A disaster with no quandary, no cursory decelerations by dawn’s promiscuous hues, crested as the serpentine trails of tears, shed like skin– flakey and delicate as moths, as ash fell like rain drops as I tipped my head back and laughed.

Baby boy,

Baby boy, you got me thinking of kisses And how the world can just stop, Split in two. Which side will you be on, When the world is divided; Will it be me or you? Because this thing we have Can only improve. So push the moon back And stop all the clocks, Answer your […]

I Remember I use to Pray

I remember I use to pray That you would take the Pain away. Lonely nights on my knees, Wet, salty tears Mixing with my shame, Fell like great rapids As I pleaded for mercy. The agony too great, The suffering too substantial- I could not help but feel Suffocated. Each breath scratched at my throat, […]

Stay Weird

I wrote this a few months ago while I was having an anti-social media stage lol Keep your true self hidden, They are not prepared for the the truth- The truth that you are unique and different, A comet taking her own course. You must hide until it’s time, You will know when, when you […]
