I exist, soulless and still at heart. My actions, though shallow, play their part In a world that's peacefully, calmingly dark;I breathe through a life devoid of our spark. Each moment of thought clear of your shapeIs A moment of ignorance, a chance to escape,A moment of triumph in my withdrawal from fate...A moment to … Continue reading Soulless
Run Away With Me
Won’t you run away with me? We can disappear into the trees, following our hearts, falling on our knees, with laughter, and joy, and love, and need. Everything inside is begging you, please? I know what I want, and I know what I see, And I know that you know that we’re meant to be. so … Continue reading Run Away With Me
Dying of Thirst
As the sun sets, my body sweats; This burned, aching, greedy mess begs in anticipation for when the tide rolls in to fill my soul with nourishment.Lessons and warnings erode from the shore"Drink from the ocean, and thirst even more," Do they know how good the ocean tastes,When you’re aching to drink after for too … Continue reading Dying of Thirst
The One with the Aliens
Trapped here, Between my heart and my gut, Caged by my ribs and a mind too open, I’m Fighting for a freedom I don’t really need. Your eyes plead, “Don’t leave…” But your arms are wrapped around another. “Soul mate,” or side dish? I’ve never known the difference. Not here, anyways. “You complete me.” Is … Continue reading The One with the Aliens
To Let You Down Easy
Wrap me in your silky arms, ribbons of love around my wrists. I’ve found myself within your knots, Tied up, then down, then in your kiss. This noose that hangs around my throat, A final breath I'll never miss. Suffocating in our dreams, Consoled through death by wandering lips.
Here for You
I let my guard down, to be replaced by another’s secure arms in an embrace that felt as natural as falling in love. In that moment, a star shot through the sky as if to say, “I’m here for you.” For the first time in a long time, I knew I was where I should … Continue reading Here for You
Another Love Poem
You have awoken me, my Spring Sun, from a cold and barren winter. My weathered branches are now colored by the vibrant palette of a heart in bloom. What of you, beauty? Will you keep my love as you have kept the smile on my face since the day we met? Or am I in … Continue reading Another Love Poem
What Was I?
What were you to me? Would you believe You were everything? Did you see this coming? Holding me and pretending We'd wake up together If we refused to let go... But we let go And now I don't know What I was to you... What was I to you? A good excuse? Someone you could … Continue reading What Was I?
Petals drip from golden hair, which drops so lightly from her head. Rouge rubbed softly in her cheeks, she hums a tune of soft repress. Bluer lace wrapped round her neck- a navy noose adorned with gems. Wrapping silks of whites and reds, she wraps her mind around the end. While teardrops wake in emerald … Continue reading Maiden
I thought I could live in the river; I thought I could survive on the tiny bits of algae it fed me from time to time, that I could tame it and morph its path and power toward a destination beneficial to myself. I thought I was the only one who could truly understand the … Continue reading The River
