Florescence

I’m running out of ink Drowning in my sadness Afraid to face myself With no will to live It hurts to breathe Sinking deeper in my own words Cursed with talents Blessed with curves Starving my gifts Drunk at the party Too stoned to feel Went cold turkey I let the pain pierce through my…

Poison

He said I was a smooth criminal I admit I got my way more than once Have you ever been stared down by a man He may as well have been on his knees Looked upon me like I was a goddess He couldn’t believe his eyes Didn’t know what to do with his hands…

Orgasmic.

A host for words A gem of sorts A singing bird A light that shined I found my glow A magical being I laid with the sun I felt the heat It warmed my skin No need for speaking The grin on my face It spoke for me Body language A tell all What’s a…

Flourish.

He said I was hard to please An artist with depth to her Layer after layer He wanted to uncover me He tried to study me Sit down and take a class Learn my body language Distracted by my curves As I spoke to him He took these mental notes P oetically I had a…

Rebel souls.

We unmasked these fears Created these shifts Gave power to will Basking in the sun The goat is gone Our house is a home You’re my morning coffee And my goodnight My smile, its never ending You feed my joy Heart to heart We’re shedding skin You breathe into me life Sand in my toes…

Masterpiece 

Last night I tried to draw you I tried to shade in all my favorite parts of you I thought about drawing myself next to you I wondered how we might look together Would your smile compliment mine? What if I drew your arms around my waist? Would I look safe? I wish you had…

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…

Tuck me in.

I keep finding myself in this space I run back without hesitation I feel warmth here and it makes it difficult to move forward It’s home away from home It’s where everything makes sense Every touch and sound is so familiar No matter how wrong it is, it’s where everything feels right It’s where I’m…
