We were opal Tuesdays,
mosaic butterflies
tattooed into the
rose garden curve
of my vertebrae,

gliding me through this wild youth.

But, like Icarus—
I was a sky conqueror
& these silk wings

touched the sun.

-

My inhalations are heavy,
like the earth he bruises
beneath his fingertips
as I chase silence.

"You've got a tongue
made for words." He says
against the arrogant thorns
of my briar spine.

"Learn to love yourself."

-

How do I say I love you
without saying I love you?

"I want to replace my heart with you."


-

You are spider silk woven
into my harvest moon
heartstrings, spider
limbs traveling this road map
of songbird sin.

You are not just in my head now,
you are dancing in the lingering stars
of my night-witch frame

& setting me on fire.


-

You're not bruised enough
they said,
to write poetry.

-

Allow these bones to tell your story, Love.
Stream of consciousness.
Writing, no over-thinking it. Just writing.
I think I'm over my writers block, guys.
Because I can't seem to stop. :heart:

Each written in 5 minutes or less.

That's my favorite. It just says so much.

Another great piece of writing :heart:

I love how no matter how I read it, your work just flows off of my tongue so smoothly. It was beautifully written and I especially loved 'Allow these bones to tell your story, Love.' since it makes the perfect ending. I really enjoyed reading this :aww:

I know what you mean. Whenever I write, it doesn't seem like it's jumpy when others say it is :shrug:

AHHH I love "'You've got a tongue/made for words.' He says/against the arrogant thorns/of my briar spine" an obscene amount. A lot of fun stuff going on in here, but I'm particularly fond of that bit. I just really enjoy reading this piece.

Holy crap. How do I become this fantastic? Also, what exactly defines "stream of consciousness" writing?

You don't. Omg, I kid! lol Actually don't know--I just write whats on my mind. And that is stream of consciousness. Not over thinking, just writing.

Are you familiar with it? :) Partly because of the 'wild youth' line, since the song goes, "We are the reckless, we are the wild youth" and also because, although they don't deliver the same messages, the feelings this piece and that one give me are the same and I love it. :heart:

I very, VERY rarely favorite poems. I'm incredibly picky and critical. But these are just....beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. They're tender but somehow bittersweet. I love them.
