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.

Collapsing Star

Naked legs in the dark
rose petal bath
my delicate hand holds a wine glass
full of wishes, ifs, and maybes.
Slowly, I sip

wishing men 
who kiss me know
their every touch
replays on my skin your
rough robbery of my body.

Maybe they won’t
leave when I freeze
a winter leaf
like on that balmy
August night with you.

Wishing I’m not
numb to visitors 
while scared
of worshippers

in this temple.

Maybe soon I’ll
sleep with no
head pounding
echoes of my
tears hitting your mattress. 

I think, If your manhood
desolated
my holy city,
why am
I not a martyr?

Because only the
exquisitely strong
climb out through
the rubble of
someone else’s sin

I have taken
your ruins to
build my castle by the sea;
guarded by dragons,
you’re not welcome here with me.

And only perfectly secure
compassionate men 
admire bruises like 
the matter rising from
a collapsing star.

So I turn on the light
pouring my second glass of wine
filled with wishes, ifs, and maybes
having nothing to do with you
this time.

Try

I don’t need you to understand me
I just need you to try.

Blush

I blush 
just thinking about
the poems I could write
for you.

Decay

Roses are practice
for watching us
beautifully decay.

Drowning

The rain drowns
this spring season
a young life dies
for no reason
like me.

Twilight

Night’s feathers stroke the day
darkening the shiny glints
the sun kissed upon the clay
drowsy rose petals sigh and lilacs play
before the stars take our attention
demanding that we stay.

Shopping List

Logic is the ingredient
that turns the sweet taste of love
sour.

Lungs

She smoked cigarettes,
knowing the smoke was the tunnel her demons walked
to enter her lungs.
