Since we just can’t
See the plain truths
We, ourselves plant
Trees of bitter fruits

I wait for your call
Every evening that goes by
To create a poem

i used to write about
living in lovers' chests,

hiding myself away
in the comfort of softer ribs,

not having to move a bit,
from bigger hands keeping me safe.

i dont want that with you.

make room for me
right beside your body,

i'll keep you in our arms
for as long as it takes to feel warmth,

i won't hide within,
i'll love you loud enough to fly

that's what i feel with you.

I learnt to welcome the future
but not expect anything
as reality isn’t a fantasy
but fantasies could be
the reality I see

He asked
Why are you up so late

I said
Writing poems about you
My love

Whisper words to household saints
Hands pressed, lips closed
We couldn't share them
The words that we couldn't say

Hiding in corners, shadows evade
Sitting on the shelf praying today
Tear and break them
The words that we couldn't say

Games played, in the darkness
Fools we both were that day
Confess it's too late
The words that we couldn't say

Mistakes littering the tile floor
Glittering shards that impale us
Time to end this
The words I just have said

I thought if I could swallow the stars
I’d be as beautiful as the evening sky
I tried one night    with fireflies
They burned my throat
Their legs striking at soft flesh
But my skin did not glow
No moon crawled from my eye sockets
I was left with corpses in my stomach
I soon learned I would only ever be
A cemetery
