heat.

back in the hot room,
she remembers:
it’s been 11 years
since he walked out;
10 years
since she ran;
7 years
since he begged her back;
6 years
since she was home again.

back in the hot room,
it all came back:
as the warmth
embraced her body,
so too did the sweet
memories of a love
once unknown
and similarly suffocating.

just like the hot room:
you let it break you,
because you think it’s worth it.

[okay]?

what happened?
it’s okay.

where did you go?
it’s okay.

how’s your heart?
it’s okay.

is it dark?
it’s okay.

are you alone?
it’s okay.

when will it stop?
it’s okay.

why not?
it’s okay.

it’s okay.
it’s okay.
it’s okay.
it’s okay.
it’s okay.


queue.

you say
it like a joke;
but where
is your self
worth?

watching the
queue form;
some will
fight for a
place.

others will
leave disgruntled;
some will
fight for what
they value.

but i won’t
wait in line
any longer.
i was patience
and quiet.

so fight for
your spot.
or leave
disappointed and
queued.


cloud.

it is on
days like this,
foggy and
humid,
no wind
and rain
in dull
sheets.

i’m playing
games and
i don’t
really get it;
i can’t
deny;
it’s still
my dream.

every
november;
forever,
i suppose.
it is on
days like this,
a warm cloud
engulfs me.


jump.

tentative, feeble
steps forward;
looking over
my shoulder;
doubting.
should i
return?
at least
the old ways
are predictable;
stay safe,
little one.

trembling, heavy
steps forward;
spending so
much time
in ‘what if’
would have
kept me
from falling
before.
but.
what if?
and.

light, temporary
steps forward;
can i jump?
i don’t
want you
to catch me.
but will
you wait?
watch me
fly? and
walk next
to me.


party.

it is
the external
pressure.

why does
my solitude
offend you?

i do not
take anything
away.

yet they act
like my absence
is obscene.

tireless hours
spent
reasoning;

must my own
comfort be forsaken
for yours?

i internalise:
what if you
didn’t go either?


cheese.

another piece
of cheese.
[please].
fidgeting
with labels
and perception,
the lines
became blurred.

while their
breaths rose
and fell;
a charming
symphony
of intricate
belief and
caution.

another piece
of cheese.
[please].
drink the
wine,
swill and spit.
caress your
conversation
like a kitten.

while his
chest rose
and her
pulse fell.
the darkness
collapsed like
layers of warm,
rich chocolate.

another piece
of cheese.
[please].
she embraced
his darkness
and they
fell into it
together.
