Prudence

Don’t show yourself to the world; it’s not there for you. It lies and says it loves you, but it’s a killer. Don’t reveal yourself to strangers, you’re too vulnerable. You need protecting, I hope you never know.   Conceal yourself smartly inside a fortress. Stay where you’re strong, don’t go into the wild. If […]

A Real Cold Bitch

  She only loves you for you potential for calamity. She’s a destruction addict, failure junkie. She gets high on those gutter lover lows, that’s her real trip; a real dust grinder.   Yeah, she’s gonna get you, son. She’s gonna make you great. She wants to see you on the highest rung, before she […]

Lowered Expectations

Let me just hear you say that we got here accidentally and we weren’t doomed to fail; we just got lost in the majesty, of what it was and what it is and what we thought could be.   Never mind all our fears, try to forget my awkward gestures try to forget betrayal; maybe […]

Singularity

So melodic, each hammer string resonation, drills into me with the force of an event horizon. Drawing me in, inextricable from the feeling of losing my mind.   Love is a rush of blood, an unrelenting suffocation and exhilaration. Coming up for air from a dark and deepest ocean. Ravaging like fire across the skin […]

Unhinged

In between the lines, is what they really think of you. Their smiles are all teeth, all the better to devour you with. It’s something in between their eyes and their hands outstretched that makes you scream out that they are no friends.   I’d rather trust the storm of infinity than be so deceived […]

The Trust Game

Breaking all of my personal guidelines.   Giving a chance to the unrequited.   Don’t think I had half a mind to save you.   Don’t think that I really cared.   But I will step out of my comfort zone, So you can see I tried.   I’m No better than you, I have […]

Magnetic Liquid Metal

It’s magical, the way the universe draws you closer to me. No distance can succeed to separate us; at least, not for very long.   There was a spark, a live connection, that set our entities in tune. A chord that struck a resonation within our consciousness, encompassing all of me, all of you.   […]

Stoic

We have been going out of our way to avoid this as best we can, but words aren’t such a simple thing when we don’t understand.   I give to you, you give to me, exchanges that supplant the feeling we know we need, but we don’t understand.   It’s been a while since either […]

Not a Friend

My words were never more than just a whisper, that only by good fortune found your ear. Across a world of wind’s anticipation, the deafening draw, you heard me clear. Everything I said was to sustain you. Syllables like meat and wine imbued, I thought I was saving you.   How long, did my ego […]

Two Hearts Light

It must have been the night and our two hears beating within it, that quickened into some fire, some light, some kind of life, that seemed to keep us through the pitch and roll of friction against so many obstacles unseen in the dark.   It was the transom in our refuge, our only buttress; […]

Just Date Night

You look beautiful in that dress; dark, but not black, thin, spaghetti straps, hidden in the way your hair falls about your shoulders.   You look like a picture. In the light, right there, you would fit in in New York, or Paris, but we’re just going out to our favorite place. A get-away from […]

Saving You

There is a way to save you, caught in the thick briar mind. Painful as I reach out for it, hands a mess of bloody punctures. I never knew we ever let it get this far.   I have to admit, I wondered how we were going to get you out, but time and my […]

One We Didn’t Make

I didn’t take your innocence; it was already gone when I got there. I’ve never taken without leaving, but I didn’t know what you might bear.   From the gift of my tongue that I gave you; did the words from my lips betray you? They did feel every part of you. What did my […]

Time + Space

I’m sure that there are words to describe this feeling, but I just can’t seem to grasp them right now. We are so far apart, it doesn’t matter what I say. I call out, but you don’t hear me.   I guess I could have sent you letters; sent pictures of who I am and […]

The Last Refuge of a Liar

There were times that it was all my imagination. I know, I swore for years that it was real, but now I see that it was all an illusion. I believed the symbols, never knowing what they meant.   Your attraction made you draw much closer than was probably safe for either you or I. […]

A Smile on A Good Day

We never really go full circle. We never really come around. The past is what it was, we can’t be what we were; all it ever does is make us hurt.   You said you saw me on the street; it had been a long time since you’d said my name. It must have been […]

There Are No Words

I guess every time we said, “It doesn’t matter.” was a lie. We were feeling vulnerable. We needed to recover some measure of our composure.   In our minds, we thought we could do much better. Caught in the act of giving a fuck, we talked a lot about how we were so much better. […]

The Break Up

I waded through my faded expectations, gave enough to make a single word escape the lips so savoured in amazement, abated with each syllable unheard.   I was wrong to think that I could change you.   Fettered by exemptions I was promised by a new and unfamiliar paramour. Clinging to my manic introspections, given […]

What’s The Difference?

You said it was something I said. I was just remembering yesterday. You said it was something I did, but I can’t remember it either way.   Now you screamed and you cried and you tried to convince me. Yeah, you win. You’re right, but I don’t see the difference.   You were in a […]
