sunburn.

it happens
when you leave
yourself exposed:
one ray of light
– one image –
and then a harsh awakening
to the facts.

inescapable pain
and wounds
you can’t hide.
there is a shame attached –
you should have known
this would happen.

if only
i had taken
earlier advice;
heeded the warnings
and stayed away
from danger.

it happens
when you leave
yourself exposed:
betrayal and sunburn –
just one in the same,
right?

smirk ii.

i met this boy.
and he smirks
like you.
like you both
knew a secret
and the secret
was me.

only you would
never share
and never tell.
i didn’t mind
your smirks
and i let you
keep the secret.

i met this boy
after i had
met you.
now i wonder
if you met him
would you let me
love him
like i loved you?


feast.

cold and hard
triumphs
of cunning
proportion.

timely and tired,
purple perfection;
meet me
near the bridge.

fallen feasts
trust me
with their
treasures.


but.

she kept
thinking,
it could be
how it was
with him.

such joy
and infatuation,
a yearning;
a completely
overwhelming,
love.

but they were
never the same.
they came
and went.
she stayed.


boredom.

dancing with a cloud,
i still wish
bad things
upon you;
only to make
us appear closer.

two options,
and neither
have retained
their gloss.
if i leave now,
noone
will get hurt,
and the new
year will
be like
old again.


salary.

how many
games
do you have
the patience
for?
playing
the long
game;
the waiting
game. again.

is it worth
your heart?
do you
remember
that you’re
still living?
do you
remember
this is all
there is?


don’t let go.

you should
be here
beside me;
your words
and your arms
still scare me,
but you
should be
here. beside me.

those words
have always scared me.

that look
in your eye
and i didn’t
want to let go.
just hold me
closer and
forever.
that look
in your eye

and you weren’t
letting go.


strip.

the seduction
was slowly
and almost bored.
but we all
knew why
we were there.
and in a
different simplistic
world,
it made sense.

i was surprised
at my indifference
and the world
i embraced
within seconds:
bare skin and
teasing smiles
pricked my senses.
“I think you
made a friend.”


magnetic.

i am still
awake;
my tea
is cold
and the
ground
is wet.

watch my
skin
fold in
on itself.
layers of
memories
and disaster.

it is humid
and sticky,
but the mountain
breeze cuts
through
your protective
perspiration.

does he
sweat when
he makes
love to you?
does your
skin prickle
and buzz?

close your
mouth
around the
warmth and
melting magnetism;
rest your eyes;
exhale.


monsters.

he wondered,
did it feel
better,
if someone knew
you were crying?

the smallest
monster
relatable;
we were watching
the crystal smoke.

i can wait
if you
can teach me
to trust
your heart.

the harried
are breathless;
but i expect
only you
and your monsters.
