look in the mirror.
and name her. never let them
tell you who you are.

i have found a tailor.

your thread is closing
my seams – i’m used to holding
myself together,

used to sewing my
own tears, hemming my own pants -
but these new clothes fit

perfectly.
just like you do.

shoved in a corner, i found these today…

both untitled.

I.
this is familiar.
even the weakest knives
can burn
through the ropes
that bind
fragile
friendships.
why pretend
to tie knots?

II.
air is more intense
than your love for me now.
just forget me then.

i want to keep you.

i want you past six
hundred moons. dare i say it,
i want to keep you.

falling…

15 Jul

fake poses faded
with changes, and old faces
became the real thing.

all in.

15 Jul

slow-burning turned us
into wildfire – we love
uncontrollably.
