River Rise

A river of pain flows from the fractures of my crushed soul, from my inner breaks, pain pours within me, a river that cuts my weaknesses into hard edges. It drowns a piece of me everyday. Its rumble plays in my head, and vibrates under my skin. Liquid battle drums. I rise as waterfalls crash […]

River Ghost

I left my ghost in the river. He haunts as he flows in the water. His pain bubbles up, crashing, and splashing on the rocks of destiny that continue to divide and direct him, the roar from the impact creates a calming cry. Listen as my ghost brings you peace. The river always flows, no […]

Salt

I see autumn brown hills in your eyes, under the rustling earth hues, there is a vivacious green ready to spring, like life curled in a seashell. I take my hand and tilt your chin up, looking down into your eyes, I hear the ocean whispering in your gaze, waves crash whenever you blink, and […]

Temptresses

Love does not extinguish, it lights other candles, the birth of new flames, glow with faces from the past. Red veiled memories flirt with the future. My fingers are burned, trying to touch something that isn’t there. Time is a temptress and I’m caught trying to slip off the dress of her illusion. I’m caught […]

An End to Start

Love lacerates the wind, your breath bleeds in the breeze, your whispers stain my dreams with red. I hear you, even when you don’t speak. Your screams color the inside of my skull a shade of burnt burgundy. Blue and purple bruises form from your teeth, which I feel in the chilling wind that scrapes […]

I have a ghost trapped in the walls of my eyelids. At night, when my eyes shut, I hear him pounding on my eyelids. I hear him trying to escape as he wonders why I buried him there, but when I close my eyes and I see him, I remember why. I dream him, he […]

Love Does Not Retreat

Love does not retreat. It continues on. Bloodied and bruised. Maimed and hobbling. Love does not retreat. It dies before it stops. Love does not retreat. Love marches forward. Straight into your darkest moments. Love takes shelter in your pain. In the house of your agony, Love sets a table for one and drinks a […]

Tasting Echoes

Give me your blue. I see cities in your bruises, the singing blue tongues of a nation under your skin. I see your song percolating, beating underneath. I cut you with my teeth and taste your sacred anthem, I free those melodic cities, the emancipation of your song, echoing skyscrapers drip on my teeth, and […]

Broken Furniture

I used my teeth to step into your lower lip, left my white shoes at the door. Made a home in your kiss. The words that you whispered to me on those midnights surround me, cheap furniture. I sit on the ragged couch of your well wishes and watch the TV of your smile. The […]
