…I’ll always remember, the day you said you hated me…I felt so cold and scared, I felt all of me, the parts I built for you corrode and dust the rest of me. I’ll remember, my heart choking. I’ll remember, all the time you never grieved. I’ll remember all the way you hated me. theContinue reading “Poem 12.25.21: …I’ll always remember,”
Rebels breath let loose.Gaze while we stare unnoosed, Tall. Ten toes, rows of truth.

I’m a product of my environment. The soil bore from the burning of the Moors, surviving off industrial complex runoff. Weeded and bested by the hands of man and machine.

Salt, fat, and warm hands. Pocket lingering flavor. Folding flour if taste.
Grandma says to this day, “you’re such a good boy,” and I’m inclined to believe her. In fact, it’s been an existential imperative that I explicitly hear these words and see myself.

My great untrainable will. I fear your intent. You flow like a river on high without sign of relent. My great unbending will. I fatigue as your vessel. You take, and scantly rent. Damn you, in body and mind we wrestle. My great inextinguishable will. I see your flame and ask,take me with you intoContinue reading “Poem 8.28.21 – The Willing”
Alone,lying next to you. Do you remember when my heart lied for you?Alone, lying next to you. Do you rememberwhen my heart begged you?Alone, lying next to you. Do you remember when my heart cried for you?Alone, lying next to you. Do you remember when my heart beat flurried and died?Alone, lying, lied to, allContinue reading “Poem 8.28.21 – Feral Heart”
Much like lightning my spirit’slight streams across ours eyes brightest in the dark of night. The thunder of my voice crashes through your ears, in spite of your wishes for silence and still.
