Hopelessly I fall again and again In and out of love with you Put a spell on me is all I ask of you Electrified and magnetized Entangled with you My heart aches to be yours Close my eyes I need no one else but you Put a spell on me and make me yours Give...

Your Demons

We both knew how this would turn out. I thought I was more ready than I was.

I took it too seriously when you told me my feelings were reciprocated.I watched my own feelings intensify more quickly than anticipated.We used each other as band-aids, a safe and gentle fixTurned to each other for affection and comfort in moments of con...

As I reminisce about our past together,I am reminded of all the times you kept me fullAnd how the door to your heart only required a pullHow I fooled myself into a forever Your voice; once a melody,Devolved into cryptic morse codeThe tepidness of your aff...

Memories Made

Under raspberry Sun.

Under raspberry Sun. We fed on, Olives from Iklaina. Tasting sweet honey. On full lips. Waves crash Under the Blue Moon. Secrets whispered. Promises made. Bonfires flame. Bullroares sing. Clapsticks wail. Stolen kiss. Then returned. Can honey, Be any swee...

Why do I long to hear the sound of your sweet voice,See your ever-loving image before my eyes, The smell of your heavenly fragrantAnd the feel of your touch?Why…Because you saw me.You saw me when I was invisible Trying to hide from the world.You saw me fo...

I thought you were the one.The one who would love meAnd take care of my heart. Love denied once again. I still feel the pain, hurt, and sufferingFrom past and present relationships.Where time and time and time againI exposed my mind, my heart, my soul… On...

Finding Me?

A draft from last year. I'm now they/them, but I'm still finding me every day, so thought I'd share.

Labels.There are so many labels now.And it's confusingAnd scaryAnd amazingBecause I finally know where I fit These didn't exist when we were all finding ourselvesThough I paused finding myself to hide myselfin the identities of others. We, not me. I'm sti...

Enough. Hearing screams. Tired of talk. Blah blah. Can't stop, Finger pointing. Never change. Leaving only, Broken souls. Bloody teddy's One more school. As we all, Look upon. Fresh Graves. Anyone listening? Enough. Say it. Enough.

Misanthrope

This is not an escape but enlightenment.

The ocean has ears.It has heard me.I am a mermaid.Do not listen to my songAs you will wallow in deep sorrow.I can't be with you. The cloud has eyes.It has seen me.I am a wanderer.Do not follow my pathWhen you can't handle your wrath.I mustn't be with you....

I Hate It When We Argue

I got the idea for this poem from a dream that woke me up in the middle of the night. Thankfully, it was only a dream!

I hate it when we argue, it always ends the same.Both of us spit venom, as we try to place the blame. You scared me when we had that tiff, by storming out the door.You told me that you hate me, don’t love me anymore. Why can’t we just agree, to never scre...

6th Street Stray

Hunger her only home.

Born at night.Tossed at first chance.Alleyway to stoop.Hunger her only home.What is love?Or smiles to keep.Head hung low.Matted fur,Stumbes on.Frozen paws,In the falling snow. Brow eye girl.Born rich.No mothers love.Raised with whispers.Told her fault.Eve...

Love Lock

A symbol of love

Been looking through your albums, of photos old and new.So many loving memories, of good times shared with you. All those precious moments, and flashbacks through the years.I’ve studied each one carefully, I even shed some tears. I wanted something differ...

I’m glad that you’re leaving.It’s time to move on.My life can restart.When you are gone. The milk has turned sour.We are no longer strong.My life will be normal.When you are gone. Whenever we argue.I’m always wrong.My life will be peaceful.When you are go...
