"Getting Through"

Rain drummed against his lenses
Moist applause in mockery of his misery
Tap-dancing on paper-thin resilience

Conjuring memories
Tart with the twang of disappointment
Each exhale scorching exhausted throat
Chords stretched in fatigue
Silent wailings set adrift between blinded ears
Quiet enough for no one to realize
Deafened eyes missing what may have been obvious
A sight heavy with soreness he keeps in disguise

They capture beauty on first
And every other glance

He seems to be
Okay... living
Giving from wellspring
Watering holes left behind in other's hurrying to get through
Because we're all hurrying to get through

Repeatedly

He becomes a bridge and bears the weight
W...

YES!

He walked
With a confidence that caused cotton
To form in the corners of the mouths of his adversaries
Forced himself forward
Featherlight steps imparting distance
Marked by imprints left in his wake
A conquerer in quiet persistence
He outgrew sheepishness and
Shed insecurities like sheepskin
Let fears fold away
Found hardening in the fires of forgery
Comparing present tensions to past history
He fed his inner wolf
Answered the moon honestly
Focused his bloodlust
Held disappointments in the deepest parts of his belly
Howled in the glory of his kingship
Called into the darkness
Forced himself beyond limitation
Folded broken dreams into snowflakes
Gathered his scattered pieces
Found solace in ...

She wore her skin cropped close and
Tightly bound to her beliefs

Trust should never be given easily

Hurried down dimly lit streets while
Praying to a god she was unsure even existed
Clutched a countryside accent that always gave her away
Curved gestures from passersby
She was just passing by

Invisible

No telling for how much longer this would last
She casted wishes upward
In hopes of finding her way
In hopes of holding her agency
For just one more day
In just one more way
She hoped she could pray her way home
A mocha-tanned fan of a certain type of freedom
Most men wouldn't dare fathom
She hurried attempting to beat Sunday's expiration
Pull-over-hoodie falling gently over her curves

I became a recluse
Hoarded love in my treasure's trove
And never told a soul of this potential
Moved in silence because
Trust stopped coming easily
Once I learned the truth

People break things often

So I kept my possessions
Precious and preserved in an icebox
Wrapped in combat-ready defense

The place
Where my love lives
Is cold
It's out of the way
Outside of the danger zone
Within some semblance of safety
Near enough to bear witness
And far enough to stay whole

I would have allowed you in
Had you the skin to brave my blizzard

"Opposing Currents"

We didn't get along
We were both
Brick and mortar
Stacked high within a love story that required the opposite
Built sturdy in ways we both wished we weren't
But past lives made our construction make sense
I told myself you'd break me down
Brick by brick you'd find your way in
While you expected effortless entry
We were both wrong
Ringing each other's bells
While wringing each other dry
We were exhausting
And tired
And persistent
Fools that had fallen for each other
But not from high enough to land beyond each other's border
We wanted both of our ways
And to go our desired directions
Dead set on stripping each other apart
We didn't deserve one another
Each of us
Too good...

"Untitled|12.25.16"

I saw some sunflowers yesterday.
Thought of your smile.
The glint of absolution in your eyes.
You were always so... sure.
Even while trembling inside.
I saw some sunflowers the day before today.
Thought of you, again.
Just... like everyday prior...
But different.

Seeing the darkness in each other
And choosing to ride out the waves

Love

Is defying the urge to jump ship

Today, I arose to stillness... Staling air and settled dust... No trace of you... Footsteps... Causing floorboards to squeal louder than I'd ever noticed... Hallways stretched for miles... Bowed inward... Wrapped me tightly in this void... Dawn's light peeked through windows... Windows that seemed like peepholes today... Nothing was as it were yesterday... But photos of cherished memories remained... The abandoned scent of you remained... I remained... Our space... Felt so large... Lived in... In tact... With everything in its place - Except you.

"Everything That You Are"

Last night
Answers came quietly
Names were ascribed in the stretching silence

Precious
Unavoidable
Visionary

You demanded
I venture just beyond reality
Dream you free
Draped in epithets

Captivating
Delicate
Exclamatory

That I imagine you

Mine

Like thunder you rolled
Crashed into stillness
Made it impossible to call you
Held many names hostage
Held me by the tip of my tongue

Brazen
Impulsive
Divine

"SayYouWill"

I've hoped that you would choose me,
again and again and again;
for this yearning to be mutual,
to grow from kindling a flame to being set ablaze;
to find quiet moments near perfection...
to be renewed in peace.
Together...
For our version of forever.

He placed well-wishes perfectly about her neck, Pinched her in between each to prove she wasn't dreaming,
Abandoned apprehension along her earlobe,
Allowed it to whisper his secrets to her,
Well after he'd gone,
His goodbyes never lasted long...

You have no idea
What torture it is
To desire you
Between sober thoughts
In idle moments
Before
And after
Each breath

there was no bewitching of the hour,
midnight settled plainly, with pursed lips,
keeping secrets alive, calmly awaiting morning,
a magnificent host to calamity kept caged during the sun's shine,
essence would not fill the dark,
would not give loosed demons special presence,
but held close,
became a dungeon,
let untold stories parade themselves,
kick up disappointment, dance in its dust,
hoop and holler until weary,
alive but overcome,
the dark held close,
calmly awaiting morning,
to concede to the sun,
to cage chaos,
to exhale,
again.

You were so used to tragedy
Part of me wanted to absolve you of blame
Say you couldn't help it
That you never knew nice things

But the way you
Stomped through my sacred ground
Shook the crevices of my intimate space
Free of the skeletons I tucked away to hold it together
The way you lessened my handle on holding things inside
Making me an honest man with your magic
In between
Told me differently

Before you left
You made certain you stepped heavily
Printed impressions of your feet into my foundation
Cracked my shell
And fled when you felt
You couldn't handle what you exposed

When you realized I held your jagged edges tightly
Sustained no injury
You tripped
Thought I'd be just another
Just...

"birth rite"

Ten
thousand wombs ago,
Sun
kissed him gently,
called him
Colored,
blessed him bronze and
Warmed
the world upon his entrance,
waited
Not
for permission,
for his arrival to
Shine.

Death has been here
Unwelcomed and unashamed
Conspirator to unrest and
Assailant to dysfunction
Bold and painstaking and
Devoid of mercy
The worst necessity
And best type of agony
Unyielding against prayers
Poured out in anguish
Blind to leniency
Unforgiving and
Most resolute
