cup.

another one
for the cup:
cup of sugar,
cup of tea,
cup of soup.

another one
for the cup:
cup of dust,
cup of glass,
cup of blades.

another one
for the cup:
cup of blood,
cup of salt,
cup of hair.

another one
for the cup:
cup of nails,
cup of grass,
cup of pain.

past.

he is.
i am.
we were.

your touch
is cold
and forced.

my throat
is dry
and empty.

your heart
is small
and fragile.

my fingertips
are reluctant
and strained.

your brand
of love
isn’t mine.

my lungs
keep aching
for more.

your ribs
are bruised
with effort.

you are.
i am.
we were.

smirk.

they used to say,
it was your
favourite thing;
to crack
the elusive smirk.

i used to think,
it was the
hardest thing;
but somehow
you blindly knew.

but like the
seasoned victor
new escapades
await;
beckon and beg.

you are so wanted,
so desired.
and you despise the need,
but yearn for the desire.
the chance;

to burn and feel again.

i wasn’t playing;
i wasn’t numb
like you.

you used to say,
noone else
would ever know.
you were right.
it is different.

and noone else
will ever
know like you.
but all you knew
is gone.

the shadows
don’t reflect;
the past, the ghost.
i cracked your
smirk.


mascara.

sticky tar,
ashphalt
and black
ice.

heat curls
the edges
of your
emotion.

but your
burning skin;
raw with
terror.

scorching stench;
nightmares of
debilitating
cramps.

the cliché;
the standard;
the end is
nigh.


cholecalciferol.

why is it
that even
wearing sunglasses,
my eyes
squint and peer;
distending to survive
the external
bombardment:
excess vitamin d.
poor appetite,
nausea and vomiting;
weakness, kidney failure,
abnormal heart rhythm.

they told me
i didn’t need
to fight it.
but i realised
they just did not
want me to anymore.
they told me
i didn’t need
to fight it.
but i realised
it was because
you didn’t want
me anymore.


definition of madness.

i am in love
with the man
who has crushed
my soul,
and beaten
my heart,
until each rib
cracks;
and then shatters.
yet still i wait.
and still i love.
and rebuild. again.


fragments.

i can drink
to all the fragments
of love
we shared.
but i will
no longer fight
to force them
into completeness.

there are too many
missing pieces
and the remaining
shapes are bent:
they cannot fill the void.
they don’t fit.

i have tried,
but we are
merely fragments
of a love puzzle;
two souls
never to be fulfilled.


like sleep.

i could finally wrench her
from you;
from your all-encompassing
grasp.

i think we knew
it was ending
when the clichéd sun
set.

i have instantly
misplaced the stench
of my
desperation.

yet the yearning
and the deep,
empty, darkness
remains

in the shape
of your silhouette;
your tunes surround
us.

i’m sorry the load
got too heavy;
but i’m not sorry for halting the
pain.

please promise.
please don’t
forget
me?


chill.

dazed. i walk through
this life
constantly enveloped,
by a frozen embrace.

frozen. like my body
is not mine
existing only,
as a transparent mask.

captured. vivid retelling
of a lucid dream
shivering sensations,
transversal piercing sinew.

defeated. the object
succumbing to fall
like a relieved surrender,
shattered bitter grasp.
