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.

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