The demand in his gaze
as he drives into me
urgently securing his grip
around my eager hips
pulling me in closer
I glance longingly
at his every move
biting my lip incessantly
savoring every second
our eyes brazenly confined
his fingers travel up my thighs
my legs grazing his shoulders
he gently kisses my curled toes
watching as I close my eyes
visualizing myself
reliving the memory later.

Finally alone
she reveled in silence
roaming through
hidden trails
in her quiet paradise
no one to distract her
she closed her eyes
leaves rustling
against branches
the vibrant sun
peaking through tall trees
glistening against her skin.

Rigid lines that contort
in my presence
gracefully surrounding me
effortlessly allowing
my fluidity
to color inside
stringent scales
cajoling me into open arms
embracing without notice
A tinge of exhilaration
beads on my flesh
everytime we part.

Human malfunction
they occupy their days
searching for connection
longing for someone
to fill an unfathomable void
a childish reminder
of their significance
in this humanly domain
neglecting to explore  
and discover love within.

like an ax to tree

deep breaths to meditation
you know the exact

But you will never own me.

I sit in the corner
writing about
what if’s
uneasy asserting desires
letting them become
if’s and but’s
nervous about
the inevitable finale
what may happen
and how he feels
my mind riots
against my heart
I tense up
opting to exit
before it even began
leaving it at
what if.

Walking in silence
plastic shovels in tow
buckets on our wrists
close to the shore
a dry pristine spot
sitting on our knees
we dug a trench
and built a beautiful Castillo
complete with a tower
our backs to the waves
we didn’t notice
the incoming shadow
our innocent progress
swallowed by the ocean
cleansing the beach
of our silly creation.

You briefly destroyed
my authenticity
paralyzed feelings
succumbing power
blaming myself
your unwillingness
for sincerity
bled my joy dry
on a stray path
I found comfort
embracing darkness
until I could breathe
one day I squinted
smiling at the light
and rebuilt my foundation
fragments, pieces and shards
woven back stronger
I realized you’re unworthy
and didn’t defeat me.

I drive with thoughts
of mountains and streams
freedom and fresh air
traversing borders
one bridge becomes two
leaving my emerald city
far behind
only to climb
the highest peak
to view it from afar.

I am sick and tired of walking into stores
and seeing happily ever after signs
You're my forever and always
like f*ck that shit doesn't exist.
F*ck your happily ever after.
People are so fake.
They're only content for a bit
before they get fed up and f*ck you over.
Fake ass people.
Life is overrated. Or is it people?
People are f*cking overrated.
F*cking people.
You think it would be easy to communicate.
Why won't you talk to me?
Tell me how you feel.
Be f*cking honest.
Most people can't be honest with themselves.
How are they going to be honest with you?
Most people don't even know themselves.
How can they care about you?
It's all superficial.
F*cking fake ass people.
Smiling, pretendin...

I create a home anywhere I go
no expectations, go with the flow
four walls don’t confine me
little boxes, a shiny key
the dirt path I tread on happily
is my normality
a taste of life’s enjoyment
living in the present moment
in the ocean seeking treasure
to my utmost pleasure
I bask in the sun
relaxing and having fun
lazily sipping coconut rum
fine with whatever may come
the sounds of birds chirping
I find vastly rewarding
the waterfall with a rainbow
and islands of the archipelago
the cliff that sets me free
when I take off to ski
excite me more than
a 15,000 sq. ft. floor plan
I make my home
wherever I decide to roam.

You can’t keep me in a box
I fly when opportunity knocks
the mountains I hike
are notably dreamlike
the glacier that I walked on
to the ruins I climbed at dawn
unprecedented opportunities
abandoning all my insecurities
the ease of his hand in mine
our fingers casually intertwine
the serenity of independence
serves as infinite resplendence
to the highest degree
of what living should be.

Winter comes faster
than expected. She wasn’t prepared. She shivered uncontrollable, as she walked past him. His eyes icy as frost. He no longer exuded the warmth she had come to love. Without warning he transformed into the abominable claw like creature that he kept buried until he smelled her affection for him. Winter emerged that very moment. Her devotion would now be her disease. He grabbed her arm as she passed him and dragged her to his wicked lair.

Late in the afternoon
he took her into the forest
through thick fog
remnants of earlier rain
well aware of nightfall
joining them shortly
she willingly followed him
into the obscurity
of the wild
extending his arm
towards her
clutching her hand in his
she quietly softened
allowing him to lead her.

I’m indecisive
uncomfortable in
my own skin
but every time I turn
to look at him
he’s already staring
our eyes confined
to an unknown
feeling of familiarity
when he smiles at me
the darkness in my chest
melts slowly like
the cough drop
on my tongue.

She battles a futile war within
deciding to confront it
she frantically stares
standing in front of the mirror
her own reflection peers back
the agony of her tragedy
torments body and soul
ultimately succumbing
to her sorrow
she ends her self inflicted
anguish with that
tiny jar of pills.
