Nullified Hearts

    I once shared a room next to you two   In that quaint little house that shared my hopes and dreams It held a younger and delighted me   I was so inexperienced but I believed true love existed   I was free floating on a cloud painted by imaginary love and fulfillment…

Consigned to Oblivion

  You are beautiful today with your bone straight hair and square cut glasses   That blue shirt with balls of dust that shine like stars   You sit with your back straight Head high but your eyes even with glass covering them   Show your vacillation   They flicker and flare for that validation…

Paralysis

  They are under your bed knowing that schedule better than you do   But you are not afraid   Those demons take one look at you and they cower   But he himself wouldn’t know that you are terrified   There were daggers in your eyes   Little tiny poniards that would sluice those…

Pipe Dreams

    I was the byproduct of my environment   Polluted and disoriented   Rough concretes and twisted lead that make up cluttered saclike captivities that we burrow in   We call it home although it is just a house   There are no fond memories here   Only bullet paved windows and exhausted blinds…

The Pursuit Of Pleiades

    There’s gold on your skin little tiny speckles that I would lay down and count   The world stopped spinning once whenever I had tried   You laid there and said my eyes were laughing I was imaging us turning into those sprinkles   We would shift into little balls of dust  …

Ripe / Problems

    I fell for you when the first drop of snow landed   I could have been a rose in a field of your tulips your bulbs encasing my thorns   But you made my petals burn obsidian   Your bell shaped words prickled my husks velveted it with your lies   It painted…

Obsolete

      There are a lot of things I still don’t understand   Why   For instance my heart seems to crumble whenever I laugh   Why   Whenever I tell myself don’t think about it crimson still fills my mind   Sharp blades   Flickering fires   Embers that want to consume me…

1500 B.C.

    I’ve always envied those people who invented that bent little t-square   Measuring the passage of time   Eyeing one shadow as it makes its way along the crossbar   How miraculous that moment must have been sharing it with another   I imagine it’s much like my time with you   Like…

Thinly Veiled Ravens

      It smelled of metal and gunpowder   Spicy and toxic coupled with bloodshot eyes fingers twitching alight with anticipation   My body thrummed with the excitement that only comes when blood is shed   A timid strike is what broke me a gentle tapping rapping at my chamber door   Obscurity is…

The Dispute With God

      There are firm pillars lining the walls of my heart blocking that amorous aura you send me   I always get these segments   With rough patches of slug that dehumanize our logic   I had once thought it was God   His mighty hand coming down to chastise us   A…

First of The Red Hot Lovers

    I liked to think of you as Ares how tenacious and potent you are   The moment you first held me in your arms I had felt more beauty and fervor than Aphrodite herself   Such spite she blooms for you   The suns not even the brightest stars amounted to the perfect…
