Chapter 9.

I heard an elderly woman say “there’s something beautiful in every chapter of our lives” So I began to study yours in mine I thought of what you left behind I thought of what you took Mostly I kept coming up short Like the story was unfinished Like somehow it had diminished Toward the end…

Exuviate.

The writings on my skin.

Lost in thought It crossed my mind What if… Just what if… my body could talk to me What would the cells of my flesh reveal to me These tender breast would they be screaming…STIMULATION! STIMULATION! Pressed against skin Body party She’d let the sensual tension be known It’s been sometime I had her fasting…

Paradox

I’m trying my best not to like you But you’re treating me like the flower that I am It’s making me soft and I’m smiling for no reason at all I’m no good at love I’m better at omitting the truth Concealing my heart I’m no good at hugs Worse with goodbyes You’re exactly what…

Just strangers.

It was supposed to be forever  But I’m looking at pictures  Going down memory lane Feelings I can’t describe  I tried to give you a home I tried to give you a partner I tried with everything in me I know you’d give anything to have her back But she’s long gone  Making way and…
