Skin

Your skin tastes like mumbling blue berries trapped inside sea shells, skies falling upon your collarbones Did you really believe that the weight of this world could shatter you? You carry butterflies inside your stomach You love like tomorrow is but a fable Tell me, do you not shudder when you think of the end? […]

A Sigh of Freedom

The distance is a mist eddying upon my thighs She plays the lyre that resembles eternity Grapes have been growing around my wrists My feet taste like oranges swallowed by the steps they take The portrait of a holy tomb stares at me I feel my shoulders turn into minarets My stomach morphs into a […]

The skies are wilting leaves Today it rains like petals falling from above Flowers of heaven shed their eternity The earth laughs in cyclones and hailstorms When she claps her hands forests are laid ablaze The fire slowly subsides when the windows are shut And doors forget what it was like to be laid bare, […]

Weakening

Teal skies peeling off their skin Their mouth is dripping with diamonds They smell like paradise under the yellow sun The chair is paper, it crumbles beneath my weight My hair tastes of wood Orange juice splattered across the counter A broken hand caressing the flower vase The floor is water and I slip I […]

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 […]

The Cure

Gold like honey dripping from The tip of your tongue Willfully made a way Down my throat Through the Chipped lips That never Seemed to Bother you. Your enigmatic daisies still Sit intact, crowning my Strands like precious Gems favored upon An ocean of Black. The fragility encompassing Each beat of my heart is Afresh […]
