Her Fever Dream

eyes close flutter open in a wicked craze then close I am tired of living and why should I love again it is sent but not returned written and spoken but never kept inside lost in translation, there is no confirmation miserable silence and I wonder if I’m wasting my breath on someone who’s blind […]

Stop Putting Out, Give Out

When I stop putting out Will you stop coming back home My body’s more than a tunnel to him But to you, I’m simply a plate You eat your fill, then discard what you hate I hold my weight in my hands, am I ugly He adores my body, each shallow, every curve You hold […]

Don’t Call Me

Don’t call me strong; cracked glass eyes Shatter into a stream of blood Tears fill the creek where we swam There was a time long ago, before the shade And shallow, I’d listen to you talk Glide on the tips of maple The water, the water, always more crystal Tomorrow Love echoed through the trees […]

On My Back

I carry my demons on my back Disguised as friends of my own mind I carry devils dressed as my lovers My exes, and my accomplices I carry vicious memories dazzled in delight When I was young, bad seemed glorious I etched my name through the victorious Misgivings of misdeeds for attention For some reason […]

Fleeting

Time stamps IED’s on the hearts of the young Beeping, brooding underneath the skin Finish me, finish me, she screams in the dark Take all that is yours, then take what is theirs Never too early to steal a night, never too late To trample on the right Because you can never be done serving […]
