It’s late, I’m awake See your eyes and then drown in that amber It’s allContinue reading “Remember December?”
The texts that weren’t reverted The calls that never came Don’t tell me you miss me They’re proof you don’t care I am naïve as fuck Or maybe I’m just lonely Don’t tell me you miss me I know better now, homie I checked on you religiously Couldn’t sleep unless you were alright Don’t tellContinue reading “Miss me”
I can’t wait to walk down the aisle In my beautiful wedding gown That I’ll carefully make Out of all those white flags That we wave After each fight. Tired. So tired. Angry. So angry. But In love.

My therapist, she hates you She wants me to stay away from you I’ve told her everything you’ve done I’ve told her that I want you My best friend, she hates you Tries to stop me from going back to you She hasn’t looked in your eyes the way I have And drowned in thatContinue reading “Toxic”
You must think that I hate you, but I just want you to come and wrap your arms around me, or just look at me, and tell me that you forgive me. I could never hate you. You’ve hurt me in worse ways before. I still adore you. My friends tell me that you’re “toxic”Continue reading “Love letter to a love that was never mine”

Pillow talk to me about your exYour iPhone playingCigarettes After SexSkin on skin, babyNo latexAfter that, just lay your head on my chest Apocalypse interruptedBy a single textOn your iPhonePlaying Cigarettes After SexYour hair brush softlyAgainst my armAs you, my love, get up to check In the back of your mindAre you hoping it’s fromContinue reading “Cigarettes after sex”
Nothing reminds you of childhood like a swing setI was threeMy dad used to take me to the parkI’d sit and my dad would gently pushMy feet couldn’t reach the groundHe told me to straighten my legs while going upAnd I’d do soHe told me to fold them while coming downAnd I’d do soI didn’tContinue reading “Swing set”
Behind the death ray stare that can make Medusa shy away, there’s hope that you’ll stand there unfazed and look beyond the walls of insecurities that I’ve created. Look past the raging inferno and you’ll notice the wild river of my emotions. One misstep and you’ll drown.Be careful.But please, let’s drown in it together.At theContinue reading “Beauty behind the madness”
