Can’t

I cannot write about you Not because I can’t but because I cannot the thought of it the thought of it stops as soon as it starts almost as if my body wanted you gone which you are  but you are not the smell lingers however imagined and the sound that sound the sound of…

My Name

You ask me what my name is I say my name is life And you say That doesn’t sound right I ask why You say I haven’t seen you live I live everyday as if time were broken But broken ain’t a verb You ask me what my name is I say my name is…

If you knew

If I can’t imagine what it’s like To run through the saltiness Run through the saltiness Run through the faults Your eyes aren’t faults For they strike like light Like lightning Like light They might It might just be enough To hold a stare In my state How would I? How would it hold? My…

Blood is ink

Embody me In the song you sing In your written prose With the words you grieve Portray me With the ink your pen spills Like every lie you’ve told Like every hope you’ve killed Devour me With your lust For nothing else moves me For no one else, for no one else

Sound of me

As we contemplate every breath Its purpose, raw like cold air We’re faced with truths Naught but others’ perception When you’re caught in vines And too weak to let loose From his touch Burning. Deleterious Stares, harsh as headlights from an impatient motor humming in the distance Choices you have to make As vulnerable as…

The Games We Play

I’m going to tell you a story About the day you stopped seeing me Do you know what it’s like To be invisible? Do you know what it’s like to open your heart to someone who is afraid of blood? Your ambivalent breath confuses me So I take matters into my own… thoughts And I…

Lead Glass Rubies

That’s another mark I carve To prove I’m still here As I draw the line And the wall starts to crumble I feel the warm liquid, rapid Like rage The light hits They’re like glittering rubies Mesmerising Rhythmic, as they hit the ground And then I feel something… So I reach for the bandages. Mj…

10:09

I think it’s easy to forget that in this vessel we are passengers We’re just passing through We are the navigators of our borrowed lives We seem to forget that We are lost Strays in our own personal universe Too big to comprehend Too small for it to be enough It is easy to bypass…
