Aftermath

I smell you in the morning, like sweet honeydew curling around my fingers. In a soft tendril of fragrance, I watch as they cast shadows, twirling in bed sheets painted by hanging linen against an open window. They're secretive, billowing from the warmth of the sun. I am radiant against you, for you, wrapped in you. I will be for all of time. Let me love you. Take me in. Become and we will, too, be wrapped like irises of gold trapped in the small kisses you left against my shoulder and spine. I think that is where you will stay. I will keep you here in pale stains, made from our love, where my heart will trace the lines of forever. Infinity is spent, only in you, my love.

Three Words

You whispered it on a cold night. I remember the atmosphere was a soft radiance, your eyes luminescent from some distant fire's glow, reflecting against bare skin. I felt your cheeks ignite in the words you phrased, molding and crafting them like a masterpiece of artistry and utter perfection. I was floored, disconnected from the earth, set ablaze under the cusp of your tongue. We mixed in rage and greedy fingers because love told us so - because love is violence and it itches and spreads in the name of passion, like a disease. Love is poison, but we don't know how to act accordingly. We fumble and lie and cheat and steal. Sometimes we die.

We die in the name of love.

Maybe that's why they buried you in roses.

Fireworks and Grenades

We were fireworks and grenades
In glorious explosions of terrifying danger
We climbed cliffs only to throw ourselves off
Just to feel the rush of the wind before the crash
We were toxic
We were murderous
But oh, the moments of elation

During the highs
I actually believed we were flying

Disabled...

I feel like 
I'm learning 
To live 
With a handicap
Disabled I am,
I'm learning to walk
Without you,
I'm learning to speak
Without you,
I'm learning to not feel
Without you,
To strive on ahead
And deal with the world
And the stares 
And doing everything
On my own 
Without you,
And at the end of the day
After I'm tired of it all
I feel the pain
I feel the broken
Parts within me,
And I know
I'll have to do it again
Tomorrow; healing
Without you...
