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 […]

Hope in Winters

It’s been so long since I’ve felt this warm. I mean, it’s quite a surprise because winters always infuse my bones with mental sickness and isolation. This time, it was different and different is not always good however this year has to be one of those exceptional ones where nothing great happens but you still […]

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 […]

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 […]

A BANQUET WITH MY DEMONS

I saw fear huddled in the back with a hand pressed against his chin, altering the shape of his pale cheek. He looked beautiful tonight in a bow tie and formals, staring listlessly at the dancing duo, depression and insomnia going at it as though it was just the two of them in the gloomy […]

SLIVERS OF THE MOON

  Last night when I went to sleep God spoke to me He said the moon is a gift For me to seek light Even in the face of darkness I said to him, But that’s the problem Darkness has no face It just is And it spreads Without my consent He asked me to […]

ACHILLES HEEL

I was Troy and you conquered me Reckless and bold, you had a way With my heart Leaving me with no choice But to sway the way you Wanted me to   I crowned you with my trust The only wealth I had ever possessed   You put on your armor of gold But it […]

The Mirror

They weren’t eyes, They were Windows to you; A glimpse of my Secrets. No matter how hard I tried, Pain had a way of making Itself evident through the Brown hues fading into The morbid blackness Hovering upon my Existence. They’re tainted pink & purple, But exhaustion is always Crystal clear. Didn’t you ever feel, […]
