Five months. I wonder when I’ll stop marking time on the calendar in months, weeks and days. And all the moments that take up space inside them. It’s weird when the moment slams into you. You wonder where did this looming feeling of dread that now resides in your core come from. Then you look … Continue reading

Unbind

Unbind

Unbind your will Unbutton your collar Slip beneath the star-kissed night Just beyond the day’s final hour Between the letters And arches Hold the branches of your Evermore, Everafter, Forevermore With no doubts Just the touch of your heated words Caressing exposed skin Barren to the breath Stretched beyond rival Unbind your will Unbutton your … Continue reading

Regret

Regret

I never saw you as a regret A mistake Just the only distinction made in distant waters Lost inside a slumberless nocturnal nightfall With the taste of virility dripping from your lips Of desires and multiplicities Ah the possible possibilities of the one that got away Slipped through my creases Devoured by the inky night’s … Continue reading

Trust Your Struggle

Trust Your Struggle

Three, three is the magic number of the day. I realized it’s been three months since things in my world flipped over and changed forever. In some ways it feels like a lifetime ago, in fact several lifetimes ago and really, it was. And in other ways it feels like it was yesterday that time … Continue reading

We All Fall Down

We All Fall Down

Chattering teeth Frozen affection Beating without rhythm Without rhyme Besmirched wings reverberate against the absence of your lofty touch Lost inside the dark forest of perpetual thought Tangled fragments rooted in ambition Coil and toil at my feet Laid waste to rumble To past, to future no more Shattered palace walls Befall Cracked broken crowns … Continue reading
