What I Meant To Say Was…

cool emerald bursts upon my lips tongue lolling, dog panting twisting into purrs and moans the baker’s hands knead white dough adding yeast and sugar, as required it’s chocolate and caramel strawberries and whipped cream raw black earth and the rain there’s crashing waves on the briny shore and the precise, measured lines swollen lids […]

Tracing Whispers

my fingertips trace the curves of my flesh once again I crave you wishing they were your hands not mine that your body was pressed against my own my flowing swells and dips matching, moving perfectly in sync with yours fitting perfectly that you were here to love on me your lips tracing whispers along […]

Priceless and Precious

I lost something precious A pearl of immense value Made its own way to my hearth and home I remember embracing it Cherishing its soft smoothness in my palm It was both warm and cool I marveled at its creation In wonder I was blessed to hold it Now I sigh and whimper As I […]

The Poet

his pen leaves splatters and drips ink drops and blots stained fingertips a chewed up lip used up nibs on the floor his fingers run over his skull scratching then clinging messy then smooth he squeezes the words out his pores he leaves little messages between the letters and the lines the black marks and […]

Drifting Along

floating in a world of wet this small pond my haven arms fluttering gently keep myself afloat thoughts stretch as time fades senses take over I gaze into the heavens clouds soundlessly drift overhead bright blue of the summer sky blue within blue within blue blazing too bright white sun squeezing exposed skin quiet breathing […]

Tide Pools

Time slips through my veins like grains of sand My love beats as the the waves crash upon my heart’s shore Wispy clouds of thought travel across the atmosphere of my mind The seagulls cry out longing and I miss you Salty sea air fills my lungs and each breath sounds like your name I […]

Lies I Tell Myself (and Sometimes Others)

It’s okay that you don’t love me. I’m not hurting. It doesn’t bother me that you don’t read what I write. Sliding razor blades across my skin helps me feel (better). Stopping helps me feel (better). I’m happy. I’m getting used to us being apart. This hurts less now than it used to. We can […]

Unrelenting Ache

I miss you But the words rang hollow Because honestly What I feel is so much more than Simply missing someone It’s a hole in my chest An ache unrelenting A part of me missing My heart in tatters Air unable to penetrate the walls of my lungs Blood run cold Vision blurred by tears […]
