My Black thoughts
Drifting Aimless
In the weightless purity,
of your matter.

There is no name
For the God who created you…
Its as if,
A perfect flower
Bloomed into my existence

From the Hands
Of nothingness…
I was given
Everything.

My words
can give no weight,
to your Flawless
Image.

Your energy
so Vibrant…
That the light
of your smile
Purifies my darkness.

Your love
Is not religion,
And yet…
It is in your love
I put my faith.

I know 
You are breaking.
Like a fool
I catch 
The jagged 
falling pieces.

My
Bloodied hands
saving 
Every shard…
Secretly
Hoping 
to 
Put you back 
Together.

Shattered
I re-build you
From memory. 
Through my 
Words 
You 
Still exist…

The need
To see your face
Just,
One more time…
Is the reason
I sit here destroying
blank pages.

Trying 
Desperately 
To
Reassemble 
your
living, 
puzzle pieces.

Missing Link

hole-in-the-wall

I saw the future…
It was raining blood
My feet are still wet.
I retrace red foot prints
Back to the wall
I stepped out from.

I watched
Purple skies burn
While fiery fingers
Fucked the clouds
Until
Orgasmic lightning
Effloresced
Through the atmosphere.

I inhaled
Weighted breaths,
The heavy air sits
Like metal in my lungs.
bystanders
Watch from
Custom made fish bowls
Placing bets on my
Existence.

There is nothing green…
The landscape
is a stranger
Draped
In stainless steel,
Feasting
On the remnants of humanity.

Flying lights
Pretend to be
Birds…
Their songs
Replaced with
Mechanical clicks
As the new skyline hums
With information.

I saw the future…
But…
We were not there.

Eye contact

You ask me to look at you
But…
All I feel are your hands, electrified bright blue.
My skin conducting the attraction of your high voltage touch.
Our pain intertwined…
Innocence buried under crumbling Sand Castles,
waiting to be exposed.
You ask me to look at you
But…
The vultures circling this rotting love
have already dined on my eyes.
The truth is…
I’ve never needed them, 
to see you.

Red Water

 She called with a foreign tongue, check the phone.
Right number. Butterfly wings painting my insides.

Her Death dialect spoke of good days gone. long goodbyes 
Sticky like first kisses deep chocolate.

I come for her with wings aflame. Last time I was 
too late, when you swallowed the pill bottles contents hoping
you would sleep forever.

I was so upset… when I saw  your eyes roll back, and I realized

you didn’t leave me any… so we could dream together 

Not this time. Shaking hands searching for keys, before kicking the front door
Splinters airborne wooden rain

The horror of silence. the unknown so free so blank.
My chest exhaling locomotive puffs of fear.

Bathroom door knocking, screaming, breaking.
Red water.
My heart knocking, screaming, breaking.

Weightless

The wind Carries us.
Passengers cradled
In invisible hands.

Specks scattered
Adrift
This sea
Of
Chaotic time space.

We journey
arrogantly against the currents
our souls whispering
Stay with me…

we defy death
In open air…
As the sky exhales silken backdrops.

Our passion born,
within the shapeless wombs of black dreams.

We navigate turbulent mind states
Fighting to stay afloat.

Through our faith in eachother
we remain buoyant.
Weightless…

Brave

I have watched seasons change
In your eyes.
They glint like honey coated jewels,
within the ever changing hues.
I see you inside my smile.
Living medicine, my remedy in human form.
My attention is yours.
I know you.
Yet…
I discover new ways to,
adore you.
You have faced my demons head on.
So brave…
When all I feel is broken,
you resurrect my will.
Cloaked in my darkness
Unafraid
you take the hand of a
Monster…
For your fearlessness 
I love you.

Chameleon

Grey skies fall against jubilant sunsets.
Your face fading in its dying light.
Only because I remember 
The old you.
This updated version wears a strangers mask.
Your new skin flecked in shifting chromaticity.
You change before my eyes.
You adorn beautiful camouflage, hiding in plain sight.
Under my radar you slip away.
Tucked cleverly out of view, 
Only because I remember 
The old you.
