Fields Under a Blue, Blue Sky

Foot on the fence post Looking out on the land The sky seems bluer these days She told me she loved me With her dying last breath Seventeen years, today Back when I was young and alive Stars and dreams on the horizon Me and Molly kept on without her Sunsets never look the same […]

Stockholm

your teeth tore at my throat as my legs wrapped around your waist gripped you tight they were covered in half-healed crescent-moons themselves amongst a backdrop of purple bruises my screams silenced became moans and whimpers lifting your snarling face to mine your eyes shone like black discs and I bit your soft lips ‘tween […]

Once A Prince, Now A King

Strong arms hold a precious little parcel. Cradled there, she appears tiny. She screams and yells; Tears course down his cheeks. He touches the back of her hand; she latches on with a grip that can stop ten grown men in their tracks. She gazes at his face; he smiles. She smiles then coos. His […]
