White Boxes

Your dark eyes only see through a lens of infinite, unbreakable glass boxes. My fingertips lightly trace the smooth mirrors of every little box. My hazel eyes follow the intricate, masterful architectural design. Impossibly perfect in glacial, calculated measurements. Precise to the millimeter. The surface unnervingly immaculate, & the empty air within each one crystal…

Love’s Way

I was too young to see the light fade from my eyes, or feel the innocence fade away. I never knew me…before I lost me. I embraced your rage, let it burn within my own heart. I gave refuge to your failures & disappointments, allowing them to stay. I swallowed your darkness…one sip at a…

Fade Away

I fell in love with the fantasies in my head…they seemed at times more real to me than the presence of my own life. I knew every color, every shade, & every moment in them. Getting lost in my imagination & building a safe cocoon around my heart. But I realized today…my love for the…

My Narrative

A daily narrative subconsciously runs in the background of my mind… Every word & line tied to a memory, worthlessness in all the pathways I find. Powerless in ways, helpless most days. I failed for so long to re-write my past. You can only chase after a feeling for so long when it won’t last.…

Get By Joy

Relapsed today but not in the conventional way… When my mind recalled the memories I fell into familiar cycles, Ate until I was sick to my stomach, heart rate slowed in my bed, elevated vitals. It’s not what I want or need, but addiction never takes heed. Cautionary tales, I know them all by name.…

Worthless Without You

His words fall fatally from my lips in sharp edged accusations I aim & throw through golden flames to you. I’m fighting him in broken confessions & tired twisted impressions, & I still can’t see… my soul belonged to him since I was born. But the trust & beating hearts have been left tattered &…

Leave & Love Yourself

Soft silk wings & gentle kisses. New dreams, my heart misses. Letting go a little more every day. Love creates life in a meaningful way. I speak now with my own voice, Every moment is my own choice. I can’t stop all the evil in the world. But I keep the fire in my heart…
