At dusk, the beast prowls,
unbidden, through my bedroom
with a ravenous appetite.

Famished, he devours me
and drowns in my gore.

After the heartache,
you will learn that love is both
a blessing and a curse.

The boy that resides
in the hollow of my mind,

I gave him a name:

Briar Ren Apr 2018
Rapturous bliss
beckons in the guise
of a Swedish Apollo
with plump,
pink lips.
Briar Ren Jan 2019
Apart from the isolated confines of my own mind,
the warm comfort of your embrace
is the safest place I know.
My thoughts are still my own.
Briar Ren Jul 2019
Remember me fondly,
or not at all.
Strange how fleeting a romance can be.
Briar Ren Sep 2020
You are just a fiend,
as an angel.

And I am a Saint,
who is being mistaken
for the devil.
Looks can be deceiving…
Briar Ren Apr 2019
Loneliness clings to my gaunt frame,
like an invisible mourning veil
that threatens to smother me
in my slumber.
I am afraid to close my eyes.

Your scent lingers
on my pale skin,
and when I inhale
I do not feel the
suffocating weight
of solitude.
Briar Ren Jan 2018

made of down and daisies.

And you, in turn,
erected a temple
in mine.
Briar Ren Dec 2018
is the woe I felt
at witnessing the
cruel aftermath
of heartbreak,
and struggling
to mend it.
Now it's your turn to mend me.
Briar Ren Dec 2021
My heart breaks
like delicate porcelain,
as I grief for someone
who is still alive.
Briar Ren Jan 2018
My body aches
for the embrace
of a stranger.

My soul yearns
for the affection
of a ghost.
Briar Ren Feb 2018
Promise to mend
my bruised resolve
with tender hands,
and I will fight
your wars.
Briar Ren Mar 2018
Despite your
utter indifference,

I do hope that you
shall mourn my silence
when I succumb to
a broken heart.
Briar Ren Dec 2017
She fades from your memory,
like weightless dandelion seeds
by a gust
of jealous wind.

And the next time you see her,
she is just another stranger
in a rough sea
of unfamiliar faces.
