softenedthe sky whispers,
ribbons of crystalline quiet,
same shade as the angel dust
you shivered every time we were
in the darkness, we were
sorry birds searching for
open dawns. you, the
swan, me, the
black as night and
just as hopeful.
and there were poems
written in your skin, universes
blooming in your hands; your eyes
were a December sunrise saving me
from any sleep.
I’ve decided that
people are a composition of
all their greatest memories—and you,
you were always the most
beautiful piece of
Two SoulsCould I touch a silent thought?
Could I know the colour of a word?
Could I hear the universe full of stars?
Could I hold the sea in my arms?
Could I stroke your voice?
Could I live in your heart?
A song never sung
A paper never drawn
A game never won
A man never loved
A flower that moves
A bird on my hair
A tree always blue
AirI want to lose myself
in an illogical need
I want to remember
how to breathe.
What is Air
if not you?
Pull Me ClosePull me close
Hold me tight
Tell me silently
That it’ll be alright
‘Cause when you’re near
I feel my heart beating,
When I see you
I feel alive,
When you hold me
I know it’s OK,
And I revel in feeling
The sound of you breathing
With your heart right next
The Mosaic and The Wanderer.Yes this whole has been beaten down, broken now in decrepitude.
Scattered, thrown here or there by wanders kicking loose pebbles.
A stranger strolls and sees a stone to keep for his own collection.
He didn't hear the rubble cry as another part of them is stolen.
That was the day the sky turn gray with a storm of unknown magnitude.
Flooding rain washed what pieces remained into a shallow puddle.
In sediment they settled, put back together by this muddy concoction.
As the day exsiccates a mosaic is made and a soul has been awakened.
A woman rises from the sand to search for a man, and the part of her he's taken.
He loves to stroll and walk alone, his thought always so bestrewed.
Wander, meander where time doesn't matter. He's tired of a constant dribble.
Remembering the trinket he reaches in his pocket, and is startled with a pulsing motion.

Lesbian first kiss~laying together, on the bed.
Not touching, I go closer in
Snuggling into you a bit
I play with your cheek,
you play with my hair
I go closer and snuggle..
This time my head
is gently on your shoulder
You snuggle back into my neck
Looking at your face, then your eyes
Your eyes are looking at my lips
I gently grab your chin and lift
I can see your face in perfect view,
you get scared and look down..
I reassure you with a hug.
Look back into your eyes
grab your chin and kiss..
I can feel our lips tremble,
frightened; wanting more
Slowly but gently kissing
explosions of emotions
Beams of sweat on palms
We part away for a second
We kiss again with more confidence
touching each others bodies
stroking slowly, at each others curve
I LoveDear Lover,
I love what we have,
And not what we need,
Or should be:
I love the way we function,
When we're nearly dead,
The way you:
I love the way my heart thuds,
When I relinquish the sweet air
In exchange for:
Your toxic fumes,
And I choke.
I love it,
I love it,
I love you.
Sincerely, the Heartbroken
Condemned AloneI always fail in love;
No matter the man I'm with,
He will leave eventually.
My heart rarely smiles
Ripped apart like a curtain
Of memories that
Fades with morning light.
And if I put my trust in you,
Will I regret it, only time will know.
Inside, I seethe
In rage, crying.
Why am I built
To spend a
I'm not sure what to believe;
All these years exposed to lies,
I am filled with bitterness.
I am their puppet;
They reduce me to worthlessness
Incapable to thrive.
Too scared to leap beyond the moon
Where lovers reside in harmony.
Inside, I seethe
In rage, crying.
Why am I built
To spend a
~Love~Love is like power
its strong but can only last so long...
Many people believe there is a red string connected with your soul mate
But strings can snap eventually...
Golden hearts connected together.
Then to rust and break...
love can make you happy and positive
but also sad and negative
very regretful too...
But pay close attention, you'll only get this once.
Pick your partner carefully.
They may just pick your forever..
Desirable SweetnessSkin is so soft so sweet, for it melts in my mouth like chocolate, it makes me wonder if you have ever
Been in love before, for I am eager to know if anyone else has been able to taste your desirable churned
Sweetness, for it makes me quite jealous for someone else has touched you first, seeing your hidden
Away treasures when hearts flourish and beat as one, as the lights dim to see such gloomed pleased
Eyes in an embowered place, in which empowers the sweet aroma of the occasion, such sweetness
Haunts my very soul, and has relished in the faery power of my unreflecting love……
Snapshots of usthe grass doesn’t grow here;
it’s all picket fences and five millimetre lawns
but ours is a jungle, guarded by thorns
as we entwine, anchoring each other
sunshine bathed and blurry
with Narnia tucked behind the beehive
still we’d rather be nomadic than settle
(we are blinkered but bolting)
and smoke and mirrors have more substance than
this hushed hunting for the other shoe
and the lipstick stains on your collar
it feels a little incestuous
but we chose the second circle
and dark matter is a time-bomb, ticking
so I sink into you again (and again)
rooting for salvation beneath your husk
and hoping we’ll find right
rippleshow many ripples you can cause
in the ocean of someone's heart,
each person has a tidal system they must abide and sometimes,
(even though you know better than to fight the waves)
you can't help but fool yourself into thinking
you can dive a little deeper.
(even though you're running out of air already)
and i am already becoming an expert in
clasping my hands together just right
so that it feels like someone else's fingers
interlaced with mine,
i know how to drape one leg over the other
to make it seem as though it's your ankle touching my foot
i press my back to the pillow beside me,
pretend its more than
just my body warmth heati
That Thing Called LoveA moment
Can be written
Star-kissed SpineShe has this air about her
that I don't quite understand.
It's as if her spine is the night sky,
caressing the heavenly bodies
of the planets on her skin.
like that of a porcelain doll.
She is fishnet and lace,
black and white,
and all the in-betweens.
I'll take her star-kissed spine
and she can have my battered rib cage,
my sore, slow heart
if only she'll take them.

Silent and new, she had no place.
No familiar faces shone
upon her silent shores of
Friends, they told her.
You've got to get some friends.
As if, she scoffed, it was that easy.
No, this newness was good but it was
And each new branch
she tried to grow, to reach out,
hurt with the growing pains of
An introvert doormat in a callous world.
But how could it be so enticing?
Late August, a friend blew in
from the dust.
Inviting. She wasn't too keen on
trying to grow new branches again.
But this one held the promise of fruit.

no life without lovei once had a heart and then one night it went rather tart
i woke up with a start my chest no longer heaving yet i still felt like i was breathing.
i assume it was the angels teasing,
i was not dead nor alive for some strange reason i hadnt survived the night
i say this because i now see with different eyes
i was frightened i was scared i was bitter i was numb
but then i remembered there is no life without love
have you ever noticedHave you ever noticed that when you cry alone you wantsomeone to be there
but you pushed them away because you wanted to prove you were not weak
In the end theres always that one person who tries so hard to push youforward
and they never truly leave your side
Have you ever noticed theyre that invisible person that brings forth calamity as you cry
well you've still got time, so at least try to notice
DemonpowerHope blossoms for bitter flowers
seeking out a vengeful power
Dreaming of the night
Dreaming of the limited daylight
What a spectacle for the devil!
What an achievement!
the children storm through the town on their bikes and trikes
hoping to hear cries from those they never liked
Hauling bats and hammers blades and daggers
On their latest bone crushing escaped
comaticIf I could dream for a thousand years
I'd somehow still end up here
because in my sleep I dream of home
and you're the closest thing I'll ever know
As long as I'm beside you whether we end up in heaven or hell
my puzzle is complete because youre the only other piece
I'll dream for what will seem like a thousand years to me
I'm sure it will seem like a month or two for you
Because im asleep yet awake, i cant quite escape
I really want to communicate but i'm to busy
im to busy being lulled away by your symphonic voice
its the only thing that keeps me alive
im sorry im sorry im sorry im asleep
but when i wake up youll have my soul t
Do you know the taste of the universe?One day, when you’re five years old and made out of fractured sunlight and mirror shards, you sit down on the bench of the MAX train. You’re dressed in your winter coat and boots that are too big and one of your parents has pulled your hat too close over your ears.
You’re sitting next to your mother, and on the other side is a man that smells like loneliness, something that you’ll later know as cigarettes and alcohol and homelessness. He’s crying quietly into the top of his jacket and you’re scared to look because you’ve never seen an adult cry.
The train ride goes on for five minutes, which is a lo
