Q Jun 2016
midnight pulses
ring in my head
screaming, scratching
my world spins slower
i walk a tightrope

a dim corridor
a maze in my head
running, panting
there is no escape
from the voices
in my head
Q May 2016
dancing ever so gracefully
humming a melody
only known by one
the soliloquy of a soul

two figures dancing separately
grace, poise, difference
the slow changes
intricate, incremental

they reach out

two figures dancing together
stumbling, falling, laughing
a tango to the wrong tune
without a care in world

Q May 2016
i stuttered
i gulped

wait. pause.

i took
deep breaths
the words
started to
spill out

wait. stop.

i held
my tongue

wait. breathe.

i smiled
no words
i said

Q Nov 2015
and so all i have
is a view of you
and all of your beauty
albeit from the sidelines

oh how i wish
i could reach out
to center stage
and ask for a dance

*but you don't even know i exist
I wrote this for you.
Q Oct 2015
And so I try
(I fail)
to tell you everything
(I feel)
But I always stumble
(My words)
and I always hesitate
(I'm terrified)
What would you say
(Silence, perhaps?)
if somehow you knew
(A rumor?)
that I'm in love
*(with you.)
I still wrote this for you.
Q Oct 2015
i've only ever
been high
on two drugs

and you
i wrote this for you
Q Oct 2015
You kiss my forehead
with a whisper “Good morning”
and as soon as I open my eyes
I smile
Seeing the sun’s rays filtering through
your auburn hair, illuminating
your hazel eyes
reminds me all that is good
about living
And I scream
Because I am awoken the next day
not by your sweet voice
or your lips on my forehead
And I’m still screaming
but all I hear is the cold sound
of a flat line
from your heart monitor
And I can’t remember
anything good
about being alive
