we didnt know each others names.
we sat in silence, inches apart;
the moment frozen so still all we could hear was each others breath.
we took photos that made the sky light up,
that made everything look, like it was burning...

an ode to the departed

once you were there, once you possessed me.
but then you lied and now i resent thee.
then i found, and moved, along;
glad to have left, glad to belong.


we were on that cliff, it was nighttime, cold.
your arm around my shoulder, your whisper in my ear.
you told me we were like the stars, nothing could change us.
but when i woke, it was day and there were no stars, to be seen.

i wanna be the risk you take.

i went everywhere while you slept.
you didnt even notice, you didnt feel the space, you didnt feel the cold.

personal helicon

i ran and ran, up the mountainside
dodging oreads and muses as i cried, and cried.
i wasnt inspirational yet i didnt want to fall
so i found sweet echo, and gave her back her call.
the wind changed her whisper and back down i fled
but nearby, at the river, dear narcissus he bled...

each morning each night i shower in steam
piping hot water to make me clean.
i scrub at my body, i gouge my eyes
desperate to rid this ghastly disguise.

were crawling stars, between the cracks. the girl whose page fell from the yearbook. were the forgotten, the unknown, the ones that wander all, alone...

the way you used to steal my breath still makes me nauseous.

standing there, shes all alone
time has aged yet she hasnt grown...

new evil

in the moment that the sky ignited, everything changed.
he held her waist and drew her in tight.
the fire held a beginning but to him it was still night....

the wounded

"icarus," she said, as she drew him close to her.
"i want to heal you, help you. i want to see your scars."

the journey

"sing to me, oh muse" he pleaded, desperate for knowledge, desperate to join:
"tell me lands unknown and battles fought. of monsters thwarted and treasures sought.
tell me secrets whispered, orders yelled. but tell me, please when our bodies will meld"

day by day, night by night
the thoughts they swim but back i bite.
the feelings singe, the urges burn
and in the dark i turn and turn.

cracked open, nothing left;
i tried my hardest, i did, my best.
so here i am, cracked open bare,
i thought youd love me but you didnt care.

what it feels like to belong.
so i will paint over me to look like you...
