I Don’t Want Much, Really

Here’s the thing. I just want to walk barefoot in the mud and let my hair stay messy and tangled and feel the sun kiss my skin. I just want to dance when the beat’s right and the mood hits. I just want to write shitty poetry or love stories or dark shit that doesn’t […]

Mistress Moon

lying here upon my bed in my ear, a whisper a rustle at my feet what’s this? a call, a beckon rising, I cast about there, again throwing open my door she’s standing there her face full upon me I’ve seen her many nights previous at times her face half-hidden her hair is adorned with […]

How It Feels – Collaboration

I had finally fallen asleep, something which does not come easy for me. How did you get in? I didn’t even hear you, didn’t feel your approach. My chest erupts in a fountain of pain and confusion. My god, is that a knife, this can’t be happening, can’t be real. Please stop . . . […]

Worthless Trash

you deleted me from your life so easily as if I meant absolutely nothing the softly spoken words the whispers and sighs the groanings and aching the dreams and realities erased dropped for someone better or more beautiful perhaps a clearer voice or a wider smile I can’t really say all I know is that […]

Needles and Nails

my lips drop musical lyrics spoken to a tune heard only by myself you think you see the realer parts of me when you slip in my cryptic song I lay open my breast bared every thought hidden and woven deeply while my knees part and my fingers slide lower and perfume invades my senses […]

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 […]

Slithering In

spill yourself into me pour your soul into my open mouth let my thirsty tongue lick your every thought slipping through every crack and crevice slithering in I taste depth and insight humor and sadness experience and love artistry and lust every flavor is a whisper I can never get enough lapping at your feet […]

Cometary

hollow inside what I want to hear drops like pins to the tile straining my ear I hear ….nothing aching muscle sits in your palm a thousand salty drops line my lashes press your lips to my temple pull your trigger ….bang reverberation echoes in a hollow chest three words set the universe spinning mine […]

Little Reminders

Fading out Memories Whitewashed Sterilized and bleached Shelved and labeled Photographs yellowing Slip from distracted fingertips Rivers dried leave sandy beds Words quiver then still History becomes history Novelty, routine No longer special Or unique Not a glowing star Illumination dimming The truth hurts But at least it is The Truth Little reminders of who […]
