My art doesn’t derive from human interaction, but rather the hollows they leave behind…
words deployed during the hardest of times, when butterflies and tongue ties wouldn’t allow me to let you know how I feel… they don’t even bother to last long enough to form a sentence.
How do you boldly confess that you’ll give me some thing like love, when all that I asked for was love. How do you not see that you’re falling short? I effortlessly give you all of me, my stars & moons, only to get empty spaces in return.
“I hate you” But what I really mean is ”you’re hurting me”

You’re the real meaning of staying but leaving. A cross between a hurricane and tremor infused in water.

You wonder why people who love you,Continue reading “– Mirror Conversation “
You poured your heart out to me on a pillow and then we started fucking, I swiftly slid it under me, Because I’d rather have it draped in bodily fluids than the smell of your broken heart.
you’re not a bad person for the way you kill your sadness… Each pill dissolving on your tongue, the way you wished your pain would. But pain is not like people, you can’t just talk it away, And people aren’t simple, you cannot force them to stay. 99 pills at once, Like problems shoved down yourContinue reading “A Mile; In Suicidal Shoes”
“He may still love you. He probably does. He probably doesn’t know what he wants. He probably still thinks about you all the time. But that isn’t what matters.

Soon as the liquor dissolves on my tongue, I am unable to control myself. I only want you. Like you are the only thing buried at the bottom of a bottle. I’m too far from sober to want you in any other way. In the sea of alcohol, It is only you that I remember clearly.Continue reading “Sober”
He was a lonely man. I could tell by the way he wanted me all to himself. He held me, Like he held hope. But his eyes were wondering somewhere else. He is stuck. And I am unable to move. Both entangled in false hope. I need him to be somebody. He is too stuckContinue reading “Lonely Man”

She looks at me through blue, black and purple. Heavy rings around her eyes. No ring on her finger. Mentally enslaved. Temporary bruises beneath her clothing. Permanent scaring underneath her skin.
