Piano girl

Dark and hollow, She presses keys Up and down to fill the spaces between the pauses Reverb fills her lungs and she gasps, A second to jump outside of the skin choking her in slow-motion, And another To fix her shadow permanently beside her I was only trying to let you see The trail IContinue reading “Piano girl”

Liquid lozenges

Liquid lozenges Cracking off of my teeth Her blood Just oozing out between the cracks She swirls around my lip, A slow, deliberate Movement of two worlds I suck the air in And with it Splatters from her innards It’s all I can do To not recoil at its form, Lodged in my throat AndContinue reading “Liquid lozenges”

Broken Glass

No I won’t Hear your words They slide out of your mouth And right into the palms of your hands You offer them up For me to chew and swallow I don’t want their pleasing aroma To trick me into indulging in the mirage of their existence I scoop of shreds of broken glass FromContinue reading “Broken Glass”


Your form lingers on my teeth Arms lazily stretched out, A force With an unapologetic skin That sticks thick and opaque You casually drop in as you please And I scramble at your feet, tripping over the words I set in concrete not an hour before You came in your chariot, dear Kalopsia And IContinue reading “Kalopsia”

Brewing. Threading.

She’s a kind of acid And I roll her between my fingers To throw a lump on my eye It catches and it sticks, Hungrily eating up the trail of flesh that circles there Trailing a skip and a jump of red sores behind her steps She strips off, uninhibited Her flesh shredding off inContinue reading “Brewing. Threading.”

So much darkness It’s undulating form Swallows me back, to the very pit of its belly Yours is a tight bodice Cinching in at my lungs And forcing me in this recumbent position And it seems like we’re all just here to drink down merriment and swallow breaths back To dissipate the fear of thisContinue reading

Stockholm Syndrome

Can we surrender Into your arms? They seem so sturdy And yet, I hesitate. I’m still bruised from the last fall, When I fell and kept falling, no one catching me , no one to break the fall I remember; My body as it plunged towards the wooden floor, Followed by quick successions of aContinue reading “Stockholm Syndrome”
