its been a while
since i was

i nervously waited
for my verdict

with a voice as tired
as someone who had finally
given up

i knew exactly
what was happening

and i relived
my death wishes
through his soft,
defeated words

its funny
how we take refuge at night
stuck between
lingering and lurking
when everything and nothing
is wrong and right
all at once

thoughts deep enough
to drown us
drip dry overhead
staining our bodies black
as the sky outside our lazily cracked windows

every sound is amplified
limited eyesight
heightening our sense of hearing
encouraging us to remain
but never asleep
sleep dark night quiet thoughts late

to my future lover
oni May 2017
my body has been
by the expressions of love
of all of those
who came before you

they did treat my body
like a temple
but for a temporary god
who vanishes
when day breaks

little did they know
that it broke me

it is hard
to tell yourself
that the worst days
are behind you

when you feel like
you are still

the question is no longer

heavy lidded eyes
riddled by LED
heavily burdened hearts
riddled by the past

to why our hearts

slightly out of alignment

little things
oni Apr 2017
but there are some
funny little things
that you probably shouldnt know
and i probably wouldnt tell you

like how i cant look at
because they really arent

or how certain names seem
too heavy for me
to wrap my tongue around

there are some funny little things
that shouldnt matter
but somehow they do

like how my taste for rootbeer
turned sour
when a boy who loved rootbeer
broke my heart

or a certain song on my playlist
has gone silent for years
but still takes up 4 megabytes on my phone

there are some funny little things
that i hate to acknowledge
as important
because i dont want them to be

but yet
some way
they are too important
to let go of

i love all of the words
that are not mine
just as i love all of the people
whom i can never have

i am a cycle of paradoxes
contradictory and scared
i repair the things
that should be left to crumble
and i destroy the things
that were meant to stand

i apologize when i dont mean it
im sorry
(no im not)
the eighth deadly sin twice removed
i have no place

sometimes breathing
is an emotional struggle
so do not send me onto the warpath
because eventually i wont know
if im looking to **** you or myself

im flammable
so dont use your words as gasoline
because you will burn with me
