I stopped seeing my therapist
she moved on to start her own practice
So I've started going out more
using useless utilities until I give out
my hands reaching for my purse
my fingers finding the chip

to pass you by is to long
for you close, lips sweet despite her
claim’s acrid taste. you wave.
your wandering hand runs up my thigh like
vines cling to ancient stone structures.
we make a sick picture, half-past-drunk
on years of tension, crushed
between mouths and confession in the dark.
you look at me as though
i might not run laps around the room
in hopes of catchi...

Smitten (A Sonnet)
He was smitten with love for her;
by that arrow deep and sure.
A gooey warmth between them;
filling the heart all within.
But, love's shaft festered, stinking foul;
to gangrenous, aching howl.
Through steamy glass his love moaned;
as he stood outside alone.
Those barbs cannot be reversed;
holding fast in a soul feeling cursed.
Longing for the lost one gone,
to the breast of a differ...

i want to go for a walk you say
the sunrise is beautiful and the wind is gentle
though, i will never notice the sunrise,
not even when you point it out to me
i'll notice how your hand will brush mine
and the soft way you'll speak to me
so gentle, that early in the morning
i'll notice each gap in between the conversations we'll have
the small ...

I watched a film called Green Book last night,
About a black classical pianist’s plight,
Featuring: good cops, and bad cops
And pompous balloons POPPED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Buon Natale, and the light of love’s might.

Lazing By The Well
This love, our love
but all consuming
A stick of rock
it's written right through me
and always has been
Reaching out a hand
your hand waiting
I’ll always return
I’ll always refill
All my wants, all my needs
melt into a single thought
All my hopes and dreams
collide inside the fact
I reach out my hand

A Ballad Of Tide & Time
I watched the ship break
under the biblical rage of the sea
The mast creaking into splinters
The greedy waves taking bites of bow & stern
as the wind, howling like a wolf,
carried the wailing away
under a sky of trauma
her hand broke through a swell
Alabaster against grey
I cried out
Tried to crawl
but too soon
I would be ca...

As of today
I'll only be in your memory,
a trunk full of remembrances
you’ll want to throwaway
and remove forever
imagining you’ll forget me
From today on
I'll just be an empty space in your bed
you cannot embrace
and my scent on your pillow
that you will not forget
I'll only be
a worn out image in your dreams
that will hush the pa...

part of you
i'd let you rip open my chest
fill my lungs with your breaths
wrap your fingers around my spine
clench my heart
until every part of me has become tainted
with your warm touch
until i become something far more pretty
than i ever could be
until i become part of you
Friday 13th January 2023 12:33 am
everything always circles back to you
i find myself unable to go one sentence
without feeling your name
whisper itself at the back of my throat
and i cannot go to bed
if im not imagining how it would feel
to have your arms wrapped around my waist
as we sway in your kitchen
i wish i could function
Friday 13th January 2023 12:09 am
you speak so cruelly of the body i admire
a body that shines so brightly and laughs so delicately
a body that loves so deeply
maybe if you saw the light in those soft brown eyes
or you felt the safety
your presence brings
or you heard the warmth
in your voice
you would speak of yourself
the way you so truly deserve

A new year from me to you,
Well-seasoned with love!
