wine
Jaxey 7d
I ran over your tongue
like silk
or is it
fine wine
You sloshed me in your mouth
tasting the way
I ripened with age
I danced with your taste buds
I thought I did well
but then
you spit me out
and decided you preferred
the 2010

traffic
Jaxey Apr 8
"I feel nothing"
she said
as she lied down
on the cold empty road
not knowing which direction to go

"what's it like"
I asked her
over the phone
while stuck in traffic
just trying to get to work

dream
Jaxey Feb 26
my eyes were closed
but I could see your face
so clearly

my arms were still
but I could feel your hug
so deeply

it wasn't even real
but I could feel my heart
racing

up to the very moment
I awoke

bedsheets
Jaxey Feb 10
her voice
bent me
backwards
over the
bedsheets
every
syllable
spinning silk
into sea
as she drew
the breath
from my ears
and a symphony
from my lips
she turned my
twin bed
into titanic
along with me
and as I was
drowning
she was speaking
poetry
i will never forget

Jaxey Feb 6

to the renaissance period
body painted
in black and blue
but just because
i was the mona lisa
doesn't mean

I don't care
if you don't know

If my thoughts
were that simple
I wouldn't be writing

numb
Jaxey Jan 27
They say pain
makes poetry
so I wondered why
I hadn't been writing
then I remembered
pain is not what I'm feeling
it's what I'm yearning
in all this feeling
of numb

Jaxey Jan 22
I'm so tired
of wanting things
I will never have
gaining things
I will never want
and being left
with nothing

I tell myself

complicated poetry
Jaxey Jan 5
no
i will not do you
any favors

my words
will not mold
to your reasoning

thoughts
from one mind
do not adjust
to another

and mine
are built
in concrete

if you don't
understand
then you are simply
not meant to

and that
is the beauty
of poetry
I don't care if you don't understand. If my thoughts were simple then I wouldn't be writing.

warmth in the winter
Jaxey Dec 2020
like a warm breath
on a winters day
giving shelter
just to fade away
you were inviting
and something new
and inevitably
too good to be true

Burning
Jaxey Dec 2020
You didn't love me
I was a burning building
And you were just looking
For something
To light your cigarette

sleep
Jaxey Dec 2020
warm until I wake
I know I am conscious
with a sudden chill
but my eyes stay closed
and my body is stone
I whisper take me back
and I suppose
I shall pretend
until my pillow
answers
can pillows talk

the broken and the damned
Jaxey Dec 2020
sometimes
hearing
that someone else
is broken
heals us
and that's just
sad
messed up **** right there

my name
Jaxey Dec 2020
two syllables
never left your tongue
you sung it
like a song
stuck in your head

a constant reminder
that I was the one
you were talking to
when you followed
with three more words

it was never the way
you said my name
but the way
you never made me
forget it
say it again

oxygen
Jaxey Dec 2020
you gave me hugs
when you could have
given me kisses
you gave me comfort
when you could have
given me oxygen
now I'm here
gasping your name
while you ponder
on why I can't breathe

secret
Jaxey Dec 2020
I didn't know what her eyes
usually told others
but right then
they were whispering a secret
she leaned in to give it away
and I leaned in to say "I know"
don't you love it when women

Standing
Jaxey Dec 2020
I'm on fire
I'm burning
I'm dying
I'm bleeding
I was careful
I was cautious
and yet
I'm still weeping
I'm tripping
I'm falling
I'm desperate
for something
to catch me
to hold me
to help me
to fix me
I'm gasping
I'm breathing
I'm drowning
I'm fighting
I'm six feet under
and yet
I'm still standing
It's not over yet

River
Jaxey Nov 2020
I was a storm
But you made me want to be a river
the way you kept trying
to hold me
as if I wasn't an ocean
that could slip through your fingers
as if I wasn't a tsunami
that crashed into you
every time you tried to swim
as if I wasn't washing you back to shore
in warning
before you dove back in
you had to keep your head above water
just to hug me
but hugging you back
meant you drowning in my arms
I was a storm
But you made me want to be a river
I can't hug you back

customer
Jaxey Sep 2020
My broken heart
was in your hands
And yet you said
it came that way
As you stood there
complaining
And wanting
your money back
we both know it wasn't this broken when you bought it

"i told you so"
Jaxey Sep 2020
writing is easy
when your heart is in the lead
your mind in the back
of itself
i guess
but as soon
as something happens
worth writing
my brain says
i told you so
crosses the line
my heart left
in the back this time
locked away
bleeding
along with
the pen
as i run
out
of
ink

expecting a sequel;

sometimes the end

How I felt after watching Devilman Crybaby ;-;

but with you
it sure felt like floating

hugging broken glass
Jaxey Jul 2020
and what was most surprising
was when you picked me up
by every piece
and hugged me
just the same
im sorry if i cut you

the chase
Jaxey Apr 2020
if thieves steal
because they want to be chased
then you are the one
with the heart in your hands
and i'm the one

did you want this?

Lines
Jaxey Mar 2020
It's sad.
I'm sad.
That the society I live in
will shove me in a box
That the people of this world
will look at me
and see not the words of my story
but the art on the cover
i'm sorry
If I'm not what you expected
For my voice leaks from the edges
And I color outside the lines
or
should there have been
no lines
to begin with
I'm sorry if I disappointed you

Quicksand
Jaxey Feb 2020
If I sit still
I drown
If I move
I drown faster
You could pull me out
If only you weren't
The quicksand
If only you could help

Honey
Jaxey Feb 2020
words drip like honey
from your chin
i lick up the syllables
that make me grin
teasing me with talk
of your favorite sins
and then making new ones
against my skin
hello again

not poetry
Jaxey Nov 2019
i've learned the hard way
that life will never be
as beautiful as poetry
and that we will never be
as perfect as we sound
when squished between
similes and metaphors
so while we don't fit together
quite as well as puzzle pieces
and you sometimes
might not complete me
as well as a cup of coffee
my hand still feels
quite nice in yours

and i don't need a poem to say that
sometimes things aren't poetic

beautiful things

you always know
when to point out
the beautiful things
you just always seem

Reaching for the brim
Waiting for you to help me

the trees are letting go
of year long relationships
so why the ****

what hurts the most

and I think the part

love hacks
Jaxey Sep 2019
if you're ever wondering if you're in love
just think of that person as a flower
if you came across them
would you pluck it for yourself
or water it
would you water me?

a-lone-ly (reverse poem)
Jaxey Sep 2019
Lonely

but no longer
alone
I am
trying
and yet I'm not
happy
the sad in me is now
growing
my hope is slowly
diminishing into nothing
my new beginning
was suppose to be taking over
my sadness
lingering
no longer
happy
I am
lonely
but no longer

Alone
I found a home inside myself
