Abyss

Even stars die
So when dreams fade
Who has reason to
Cry--We shared a
Beautiful shadow,
But the day has come
And we must
Go--Forgive my
Translucence
I do not mean to
Run from this--I
Simply have no
Choice--In light of
Things I do not
Rejoice, instead I
Burn into oblivion--And
Vanish.

Dizzy

Bloody Toes

My pain dripped down my
Abdomen. From my breasts
The trickles of blood rivered
To my toes where, in between,
Little puddles grew. I walked
To the shower—leaving crimson
Feet print stalking paths. In the
Mirror my dissected image dripped
Seduction. In the shower
My blood swirled down the drain.

Embrace

Beauty, I’ve learned
To never hold you
And just let you
Be. Beauty, you’re
Nothing if you’re
Not free.

Disconnected

I ran my finger down
The cold, brittle plastic shell
Of my phone; it
Still didn't ring. That night
It never did. It sat silent
While I waited for its ring
To bring me the warmth of your
Voice. Then, I realized, holding
My phone is not that different
From holding you.
