Monthly Archives: March 2016

caffeinated.

stay late.
talk loud.
sing softly.
dance forever.

infinite music.
no time.
make time,
live for it.

vanity held
back tears.
the truth
of loss.


subcutaneous.

will it be
a long treatment
time?

will you hear
my screams of
pain?

will my body
recover through the
scarring?

will you tell
me;  will you
guarantee?

will it work?


chocolate.

pools of cocoa
dreams and statuesque
forms of buttery,
silk-like creations.

the aftermath
of a very adult easter
of liquid lunch
and languid nights.

if sunday is for
our resurrection,
a little debauchery
and lust is only worthy.


loose ends.

i’m disappointed.
i wanted to see
as much of the world
as possible.
but now it’s clear
to everyone and
no one –
heaven will elude me.


cheerful.

pseudonyms and
secret games.
membership is full
and we don’t
take your kind.

but come along
so we can watch
just how far
you’ll go
to falter and flail.


hanging.

from the rope.
up the receiver.
out the clothes.
in the attic.
to hold on.
his head.


cinematic.

catatonic
but memorable.
is that your
preference?

catastrophic
but peaceful.
do you have
a map?

idiotic
but enough.
where is my
popcorn?

symbiotic
but unique.
are you safe
yet?

probiotic
but no war.
how do you
sleep?


emancipation.

i mean, don’t
quote me on it.
i’ll never
trust that
it is the real thing.

i couldn’t
tell you
what the signs are.
i just couldn’t
tell you.

i mean, don’t
quote me on it.
but i’ll never
forget the pain
or the nausea.

i couldn’t
tell you
what the signs are.
i just couldn’t
tell you.


crush.

you held
these tears
in your arms,
in your voice,
and in your eyes,

you let me
see you
and you let me dream
that i could
be myself.

i couldn’t
bring myself
to ask.
i couldn’t
fight you.

it was like
you never
knew me.
and i had
fallen in love with a ghost.


caution.

i told her
to look outside
herself.
i tried to
find
the light
for her.

he told me
to leave him.
he tried to
destroy her
and render
them
irreconcilable.
