she was a sunflower planted in the midst of the dark ages. the drought had lasted seasons with not a single seedling able to sprout. they told her it was futile that growth would never come no matter her effort. but she told them look within to find the light you need to flourish.
I traced the letters of your skin to form the sentences I wanted to hear from you, and my ears sung along as the story I waited all day to hear finally erupted from the room. The first chapter was always my favorite part. I knew it all by heart, and my heart repeated the… Continue reading The Story Without Ending
I was stuck, In a slow motion car crash, With the screech of the tires And the glass of the windows, Piercing into every inch, Of my delicate skin. Just when I thought, It couldn't get any worse, I was transported out of the car, While You were still stuck, In the slowest of… Continue reading I Was The Car Crash
You were the ocean, And I was the shore, And with each crashing wave, All I craved was you more. You were the embers, And I was the trees. All I would ever desire, Promised the ending of me. You were the lava, And I in your path, Would do anything to be,… Continue reading Risks
The notes, And melodies, Of your delicate soul erupted In symphonies, I could Listen to On repeat forever. The songs, Played over, And over again until, The notes were scrawled In permanent ink On my pallid skin. The words, Poured out, In sentences and phrases, That I’d keep and come, To find would… Continue reading Our Melodies
If you were the desert, I would pour every ounce, Of my rain, Into your valleys until, I was barren. If you were suffocation, I would give you every breath, Of the air, In my lungs, until, I was drowning. If you were the darkness, I would give you all the light, Of… Continue reading Giving Myself

I could hear your heart beating, In the waves on the shore, And as they crashed on the coast, I felt time freezing more. Struggling to interpret, Suffocation from drowning’s appeal, Because at the hands of you, Both these cravings are real. I could sit in the chill all night, As the waves… Continue reading The Tide
I desperately wanted the leaves to change. I felt that everything in my life was constantly the same, so much so that I was content to let the foliage die just so I could start over. How many times have I started over? I keep reinventing myself, the seasons change the scenery completely and with… Continue reading We Were the Seasons
We were broken. We were lost. But for now, We are tangled, Into one. All those things, Will be true, tomorrow. But for now, Look into my eyes, And belong.
I was stuck, In a slow motion car crash, With the screech of the tires And the glass of the windows, Piercing into every inch, Of my delicate skin. Just when I thought, It couldn't get any worse, I was transported out of the car, While You were still stuck, In the slowest of… Continue reading Blogmas Day #22: I Was The Car Crash

Necessity You were once the boat, That kept my head above water, And even amidst the sinking, I would not abandon ship. You were once the rain, In the barren desert of my heart, And even now at the oasis, I crave water’s salty taste. You were once the candle, That brought light… Continue reading Blogmas Day 18: Necessity

Forbidden Falling for your thoughts, Like a torrential downpour. As your heart sealed shut, I only craved us more. Distance was my ally, But timing was my foe.

Then love becomes Lone, And lone becomes Gone, And it’s like you were never seen. Then kiss becomes Miss, And miss… Continue reading How Easily We Change
I told the moon my secrets, I poured out my fractured heart. That next night I went to see it, But only found the solemn dark. A sliver, crescent, barely there, With a shaking voice, I spoke. Breathing words I never dared, Letting darkness be my cloak. I told her all my… Continue reading Our Moon
