Saturday #1

Last week, I swore I would get out of my fucking house and meet some people. For god's sake, I was merging with my couch! Which led to yesterday. Yesterday was Poetry Workshop day Poetry Workshop Day What better way to know if I am actually good at poetry or not? I asked myself, clicking... Continue Reading →

Hasn’t happened yet

He walks through the door, He brought the sketch; Crinkled paper in sweaty palms. The bell jingles as he enters, The buzz like a soft whine; He stares in your eyes- "Make it good," he says, Make it bleed, he thinks. You shrug, he nods, He doesn't even know where to put it; How could he... Continue Reading →

Not a Dot but a Semicolon

Breath play... You took my breath away; Screaming silently like I'd never choke, You took away more than my hope; More like my sanity, till all that remained of me Were shadows and echoes of what I used to be... Sticks and stones break my bones, But your words broke more than my soul; Poisoning... Continue Reading →

Fright and flight on everyone's lips We succumb to cowardice. Snap. Out. Of. It. Life goes on. Children are born. Flowers bloom and... Continue Reading →

I Borrowed Your Pain

I borrowed your pain Quite unconsciously And I do want to give back these holes Because I forgot how much it rips my soul The restless nights The gulping and swallowed Screams and reams of pain That cannot keep these bones sane. I didn't protect myself And I was left unprotected and Vulnerable to your... Continue Reading →

Starving 4 Touch

This world is like prison A prison for the senses We can see, but not approach Hear, but not engage Taste, but not prepare Smell, but not track All 4 senses are given full range I can view the world around me Hear the buzz of life, or the whispers Of noise-canceling headphones I can...
