Afiqah Oct 3

forgive me,
for my delicate soul
sometimes,
I don’t love myself easily
but I know my flaws pleads me to
when they show up too much,
I can simply count how many
will stay and notice
as I settle for most of my nights
under the same stars
at how my skin unfolds itself upon
the darkest side of the crater

leave me be
for I get sick
with my own apprehension
now and again
leave my scarred ones among
these odd, cold things
for now,
I don’t need to be dehumanize
let my shadows pass
and please don’t try to pull
their goddamned trigger
unless you enjoy my kind of massacre

it gets us all a little crisp
when the truth runs wild
and that’s where the cold, heavy things
raise its home
on most of our careless nights
they break, they bite
and everything else just sounds
fatally afflictive

we are all a little busted
breathing through every of life’s
fragmentary affairs
nobody wants to feel any of this
ill, personal animosity
but we’re still here,
still learning to slip in between these lines
that constantly slits itself out of our good intentions
into something lethal
life hits boldly head on, yet,
no one leaves unscathed
and made it all out completely whole

and suddenly,
every other thing
just starts feeding itself into a whole
that first few burning seconds
whenever
our skin snuggle into each other so fondly
somehow,
made the angels fall back in
over and over
feasting their eyes upon us through each night

I tend to know
certain things I shouldn’t sometimes
and that itself, somehow, terrifies me
of how well wicked it could silently
crawl, succumb my whole
and revivifies old, silly habits
into nothing other than sinking in
to that awful, unpleasant taunts
until I’m almost undone

-a.

you nestled up
every flawed bit of me
and threw sparks into them
with all my favorite colors
and I’ve never quite seen them
do the slow waltz so spiritedly,
flowing to every corner of your soul
and it hasn’t shied itself away
ever since

let’s be classic, shall we?
let’s lose ourselves into unknown looking stellars
and sip into every stardust

let’s hide and get super dramatic and
sing all the wrong words
and make the goddamn angels cry
to our heart’s amusements

let’s just love,
damn it, let’s love
and melt this ache full of intimacy
each time we held hands, tickling the other
for more
into our most favorite thing

-a.

Afiqah Aug 27

must we go there?
must we all come to this part where
no band-aids or poetry can be neither fixed
we battle with such strengths
through all the damnest things
we swallowed
and yet,
better was still not our best essence
so fuck okay,
let us settle with the damage
if that is all there is

-a.

it pretty much sounds
like a bag full of obsessions
that once drove us all into a thing
in fact, it feels like
there was once happy sitting alongside it
until eventually, after a while  
nothing seems as inviting as it used to
and we got nothing left
but to let the stars frame up
its favorite part of us

hoping someday,
we’ll soon fall in with them without
that niggling voice silencing our souls
to whether or not
it was worth to exhibit such an act
and create a massacre
