Morning After

you’re standing at the door fiddling with your keys and I hate myself because I know what you want to hear and I don’t have those words inside me or maybe I do but they stay lodged in my throat or maybe more likely I only have them for someone else a someone else that […]

Collision Course

chaos reigned my mind untamed searching seeking watching waiting dark patches of cold millennia between eye blinks tear ducts frozen open exhale puff ice crystals float quiet deep long quiet alone longing wanting more my heart in stillness but disquiet a blue light appeared a pinprick really far, far away coming closer? I waited his […]

Creation

go on, lay your lips upon my thighs suckle there you will find yourself come alive there in my valley drink down my rivers of life gushing in torrents lap me with that soft and thick tongue my fingers will plow furrows in your hair while my land quakes and shudders curl your tongue taste […]
