Horrors that itch Lil Miss Dusty Rhodes

What friend is this or what even is a friend who would sacrifice love of firmament to admit that he’d beenĀ  involuntarily evoked? That my love had choked? That he had to go and thus ended the ending in the midst of it Pray no It could never be so What ego could stoke the…

The Metallic Aqua Blue Lacquer

I’m fine. It’s fine. Everything’s fine and as it should be and it’s not your fault. It really isn’t. It’s not your fault that I don’t know how to end things like a proper adult. I’m actually quite sorry so sorry that I’m crazy and I hang onto whoever the person is that is least…

The Weakling’s Lament

He said he loved me once as a joke and that was enough until a year later when he said it again and we’ll never know why he did- we’ll never know… twice now, in the years since I’ve known him he’s said that and he’ll never have to tell me again, ever in life-…

By Myself Forever

I like your natural hair today and your natural face and your natural hips and your natural belly and your crazy eyes. I don’t wish for you to be different but in the ways that make you a better version of you to you and for you. You wait for other people to tell you…

Unrelated

Against the wind

I lack symmetry but I can still love me If I want to nobody will force me either way but either way I can’t get to perfection I can’t even get close I lack symmetry but I can still see the good in me If I wanted to and I know that nobody will force…
