It looked awful
It felt even worse
For a moment,
vision was laced with uncertainty

My heart tugged
I saw you
I. Saw. You.
vision cleared about what to believe—
in you.
s Nov 9
like, love, and in love
knowingly feeling all three
heart full— choosing you
s Oct 30
I can wait, so take your time
I want to hear you unwind

Slowly tell me everything
Just know that I’m listening

Nothing you bring is a burden
I’ll sit and wait when you open
Happiness isn’t the only emotion that I want to know with you.
s Oct 4
You laugh,
but I’m the one left breathless.
s Sep 7
a finger lingers on my lips
carefully touching pulsing heat
I wonder how this love will taste
First kiss
s Sep 15
puzzled by his brooding stare
my heartbeat quickens

static lingers in the air
my posture stiffens

I glance down at the table
then back at his eyes

to dancing fire— playful—
a sensual surprise
“You look good today”
s Sep 25
I’m surrounded by a storm.
his soft lips
gentle nips
The subtle touches feel warm.

I’m surrounded by a breeze.
his growling sound
carnal cries drown
The needy aches feel ease.

I’m surrounded by a fogbow.
his smoky eyes
riding out highs
The shared worlds feel a glow.
“I can’t wait to see you again”

what can a flickering candle say
to a blazing sun?
Your gleam steadily brightens my world

Worms behind my eyes
And vultures in the sky
Their shadow swarms to feast
A tear appears a cry
Beaks inside my head
The screeches through my veins
Noise swimming through my blood
My gut sickened by the shame
The flight of a thousand worries
Cloud the sky in a falling angst
The army of thoughts attack in my sleep
Moving them up in their ranks
Centuries long, a gruesome war
A spirt alive just to fight
But not seen a warrior, surviving in the dark
In a need of a different light
Victories forgotten, the walls lined with losses
Thou art thine own great vice
Maybe one day, these crimes will be pardoned
And red blood will rain through the night
