miles in between

  For both of us... We just seemed to act like nothing happened, like what we had didn’t exist; and I realized it was easier that way. It was easier to act as if we weren't one, like we didn’t live on the same plane of existence- didn’t care about the miles that were clogged…

asphyxiation

He had hands of burnished mahogany- kept that palm lodged round my throat; digits piercing skin, leaving my veins prickling.   You did it for the burn, sudden power rush, and oh, how I just loved to watch your eyes darken.   You held me, propped my body between sheet cuffs, sending me right over the…

fevers

  Your body  Hurts me as the world hurts God. - Sylvia Plath   I’ve always loved a brute,  brute of a man like you With  your razor-sharp tongue,  crystals in your veins The hand  housing icicles, eager to  impale     

to: You

  You’d have done it anyways. You only come back to me when the Tides fall flat, and when the Moon departs. You’re gone just as quickly as She resurfaces.    

Honeycomb of Lies

    I crave perpetuity.    So much so, that I come to you  in the form of nectar; a jar of tenacity-  viscidity- long strips of flattery and dabbles of desire.  I offer you seduction mixed with a sting  that you return with disdain.   You loved those animated creatures,  the ones who fill me…

litho

  How was I supposed to know it wouldn’t have turned out like that- that you would never love me.   You took that fickle little piece of passion, and melded it into her. A fragment, she is. Nothing more than processed lithography.   But you loved that dirt and grime, ached for that flush…

tsela

  I once tried to construct you.   I drudged you up from my rib, and melded you into the perfect species. You were so ripe, so full of passion,  it had almost consumed me. A consummated  sculpture- that’s what  you were darling, and yet I was more susceptible to your abhorrence. You  turned on…

problems- ready

  I could have loved you But you- you felt the need to erase me. You made it so I never even existed and So I never even existed. All it took was a little neglect; A spill from your lips, was all it took for me to be scraped out. I hated you soon…

circles

  wednesday finds me easily enough  pitted between wanting and wanted  you used to be nearer   so much closer than you are now   it is a pity you’ve gone around  not much further than before  you never wait long  sometimes you wait too long  but we always end up back here    

letter-

Perhaps it was the miles in-between us that took you away from me; Or perhaps it was just myself that pushed you away. I started seeing your face everywhere, it was so cruel darling. My lips would go numb just from the simple thought of you. This glass filled with two fingers of brown- I…

conversations

    How do you miss me while you’re sleeping? Is it in the way your breath catches, your soul aches; when darkness plunges your room? I bet it’s lonely over there darling. It must kill you to not have me. It rips me apart, makes it hard to breathe while I hear your voice…

-musings

You were never mine, so I wonder why I miss you so. I miss you like you were apart of me, like my soul can’t bare to go on without you.

spice

  You are dangerous -   yet here you are sharp tongue and soft eyes you could put Satan to shame

learning the blues

  I plucked one of your roses needle pricking my skin crimson just as red as those petals   You told me It’s not time yet   I wait for spring to come almost as much as you crave winter   It’s in those moments that your heart grows warmer icicles latched to your skin…

stoicism

    There was nothing there in the first place; no you or I I hardly even knew myself- I could have pointed you out before me. I wonder if you feel that too. I see you are doing things to remind yourself of me, does it feel the same? Does it seem like I…
