“She’s annoying” “Why? Because she’s not you?” The stillness extended and the tension grew, sneaking in through the spaces in each window net, the dour drafts, and the slice of space underneath each door. Flopping on the bench, she let out an angry howl “You make me so angry!” He said nothing to that. There... Continue Reading →
Hue, Glow The intense cantaloupe Blazing above like an aura Big, Bright, Hanging low making the hours seem so slow formulating this mirage to seem so real sweat and the drowsiness a part of me This ample colossal luminous streaks cutting the grand azure into bits Sun rays spiking off my skin The radiant sky...

What if I die here?
What if sin’s chains choke me till I die?
What if I reach and I crawl and I strain and I fall?
What if I cry and I try and I never get out of here?
What if I never find my voice, or the courage to tell the truth?
What if I live my life for someone else because I’m afraid to demand it back?
What if I never stop hiding?
What if shame keeps my hands from rising?
What if I never heal?
What if the wounds in my deepest parts fester, and I rot, full of bile and bitter?
What if I end up broke(r), miserable and alone?
What if my dreams make no sense?
What if all I set out to achieve is emptiness and stupidness?
What if this is all there is to me?

I give to you My largest duvet so you can hide under and busy yourself in the bed of my thoughts, be pillowed by my over-protectiveness, entangled in the warmth of my angst I give to you my scissors To trim, and cut yourself down, shorter, way shorter than the largess that has been bestowed...
