Tear Drops

She folds her heartbreak
like origami
transforming
an ocean into teardrops.

Bottled Up

My bottled up 
feelings for you
ran out of ink.

and tell me 
I am toxic.

Tricks

When I think of you,
why do I 
hate the ways you tricked me
just to hate how I let myself be tricked
more?

Statues

We were statues
who woke up
still as stone
in each other’s
arms.

Learn

I trace my fingertips
over his chest
learning how his heartbeats
like a blind girl learns
braille.

Never

My love
fills books
that he will 
never read.

Choice

You pushed me off the edge
and walked away singing:
a falling body’s only
choice is to hit the ground 
and break.
