Moon & Dreams

The moon is a beautiful shade tonight, do you see it fall over that distant darkness? It’s like she’s offering her shoulders in prayer- A prayer that becomes our long lost wish An admixture of paperweight dreams, My mind and my thoughts keep me running I’m always on my feet, looking for answers that paint […]

Curtains

A perennial shower of peace spreads across my chest Joy crawls over my body like sticky ants Their sweet blood infuses with mine I hear a song these curtains muse~ They’ve been watching me curl up and inside, They’ve been learning my silent wish; A lily settles upon my lashes My fingers extract the elixir […]

Staircase to Earth

Hell. All this time, he spoke to me in varied hues of oranges and reds. He whispered in flames that burned my head, he moved about in a curfew that swept my need for fresh air. I am a tree, with a broken heart carved on my stomach. The knots of insomnia tighten around my […]

The Prayer

There are mosquito bites all over my feet The itch grows like climbers around my knees My veins circle the heart My hands run out of control I’m spinning in this web of my creation I’m a collector like spiders Except that I don’t devour upon my hosts I watch them grow out of their […]

D I V I D E

The gap between my teeth widens I’m six years of carelessness and a body clothed in flesh My flesh is skin and a human anatomy I’m yet to understand My flesh is carrot juice and French fries My flesh is a subtraction of the numerical, perhaps the only confusion in my life My flesh is […]

YOU

The metaphysics of my existence circumvent the physiology that reeks of me. My nose, my ears, my mouth and my hands are tales that hum Mozart across park benches on a windy afternoon. There is a moon that grows in the middle of my chest, it grows until writing feels like playing the piano and […]

Celestial Boundaries

I’ve allowed Wormholes to breed Inside me Astronauts from Distant universes Travel down my Throat each night Leaving a scent of Their cosmos upon My lips My shoulders bend From these weightless Clouds A clot of inertia rests In the back of my Head Petals wither Where your touch Once bloomed My ribcage leaks Stardust […]

The Question Mark

I remember the Colorful question Mark in my old Sketchbook from When I was 13 A clueless rhythm Shook me to the Core while the Sea failed to kiss The shore I stood still My feet crushing The sand underneath Waiting for answers Then in the distance I watched the sun set Birds flying toward […]

MY FIRST HEART BREAK

A burglary happened on your lips while you had your eyes closed. Maybe that’s why kisses are stolen these days, not planted. You say heart breakers are bullies who will never be happy again, tell me, what do you truly know about being one? We can be poets for all you know, making you cry […]

COLLECTING CAGES

My hands are stories you never read Long, slender and painted red An estuary within me connects to you Not the whole ocean inside of me Pandora’s Box lies safely in my stash I lick the dust upon it to get a taste They way you slid your fingers under My sleeve Made me swallow […]
