Fantasies & Fiction

There’s a fantasy, at the surface of my spine It flutters into your arms like a Gothic Romance choking on its own saliva I spill the rainbows that you planted in my bladder ~ an acid leaves my body crawling on all fours, There’s a lullaby growing in my belly & with every kiss, youContinue reading “Fantasies & Fiction”

Night Creatures

All the night Creatures crawled up to my desk ~ & I wondered… What Creature am I in their language? The one with the touch of Death or the God with untimely sunlight ~ as bright as a snowfall in the raging summers? They keep coming back, I don’t think they’ve a name for me.Continue reading “Night Creatures”

An excerpt from a poem, a question to myself and fellow writers; Will you write yourself?

Of Women & Moonlight

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 myContinue reading “Staircase to Earth”

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 theirContinue reading “The Prayer”

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 isContinue reading “D I V I D E”
