seams

I’m not going anywhere and tomorrow will just keep coming

I cry for a new taste in my heart

stop licking old wounds that irrigate so deep

falling so no one will catch me

it eats at me like ants submerging into my brain

fighting for a space and a thought of their own

waiting and burrowing

they all feel pain

liar

You could be filthy,

ravaged,

desolate

but lets not pretend ever in despair


catch

I can’t breathe

its tight

the air is wringing my neck

I’m bleeding

my trachea is wounded

its exhausted

flesh is tightening digging its death into me

tightening around my neck

aroused by the blood

heightened by the heat


ever be

Put me down like an old used blanket

dusty but free

Am I not good enough?

Roll me up like a used ripped rug

disheveled but full of character

Will I ever be good enough?

Shove me to the side like a used up lover

dried up but soft to touch

What do you have left to say now?

Throw me aside

used and whored again

Tongue tied?

Rebirthed

A learning in progress

I belong to me now


who he is

tell a story

let me tell his story

his eyes grinned like black craters in the moon

his hands shone as he slid his palm against my face

forcing his lips along the lines of my body

shoving his tenacious tongue down my gullet

grunting and pounding


stillness

Sometimes I feel like my chest is deep in captivity

And my head is the only thing keeping me there

Sullen scars with eyes that tell no story

self pity pain

Drowned by drunken thought

Feelings and words muddle

Gripping at my stomach

Ripping tendons into tenfold

Screaming summers of dead names

hollow sunken wound

deep left to fester

until pain is only a thought


amen

in the writhing cold where I set my flame

the howls slide inside me whispering through my body

the spirit slipping sturdily down the spine

the ghost of a memory

wet, crying with pain

foraging for the lost soul

mourning the loss of empty vessels

Amen
