ExhaleI wanna be the smoke of your cigaretteI wanna linger around your addicted lipsAnd when you inhale me I'll force my wayDeeper and deeper into your insidesBurning and crashing your blood like a dancerI'll bloom like a sweet disaster and penetrate your lungsI'll be your joy, your addiction and your cancerWhen you exhale we'll be the bitter endThe destruction and the lightLike the flames of the sun, that ever burn so bright
Valtariyour voice cracking at midnight; promisingconsistency with your waisttwisting around white textile.skinmight be my favourite word,your skin –how did I not findit sooner. touching your skinis like touching the surface of the seait feels like homereliefgriefabandonmentmaybe I could spend all dawns with you asleepor awake,in both cases in your arms.

exodus1. You appeared suddenly. Maybe it was the beer, maybe the waves crushing on my sides, but you were smiling wonderfully, and for a moment I thought I missed some part of you. I don't know which part though; I don't even know if it exists anymore. It was glorious in the happiest way. The sky is black; blacker than your heart. It's even darker than mine and the future is so unpredictable that I am in despair.1. So many dreams awoken by a single drop of rain, a simple ray of sunlight.2. I can see your strange light. It's wonderful, addicting. My dreams float on your wrists and my eyes on your hair. You are glorious in the most glorious way. The sky is bright; but your heart is brighter. Mine is even brighter and the future is so predictable that I am in despair.

dublin in a rainstorm (8)i'm in love with your name. i love the way it travels in my mouth. i can taste it, it's lingering on my tongue. i wonder how many people keep your name in their prayers. i wonder how many people hear your name in their nightmares. i remember how your name created my own personal eclipse. (&)i remembered how i watched the past in my mind, as if i was watching a low definition movie. i remembered how your voice echoed in those possibly meaningful words.a long time
s u nI wish I could make a drawing of your aura,fold it,and keep it in my pocket.Then every time Id be sad, I would unfold it,And its endless light would make me smile.
Etorphineyou have a quiet frame of mind. the pulse of your heart beating in your chest at night feels tranquil, safe. your aura is glowing in a serene light, like an apocalypse sitting still. those fragments of your thoughts are floating in my dimly lit bedroom so peacefully, like they couldn't ever be shattered. i think you have a forgotten soul. i'm sure you can feel the wind when it's not there. I have spent hours playing the piano with naked fingers but i can't compose a song of you. your music must be celebrated in silence. today i woke up hoping that you and i would sit by the river, talking without speaking, until it stops flowing. those freckles on your cheeks are a tiny solar system i would dare to explore without any oxygen. inside that solar system i took a glimpse of the end of my tunnel.
I'll Fall With YouI'm holding onto your heartstringsand binding them to my ownwith double knots of garden twineso that maybe roses will growthrough the thorns that encircle your ribcageand rise against your lungs.You find questions in the spaceof each sentenceand you aren't satisfied with answersbecause you're more interested in searchingfor the rain in rainbowsthan the secrets I keep-that I wish you would find.You tell me you don't understandwhy I'm still chasing a falling starinstead of exploring night skiesbecause you strike like lighteningand my veins are filled with thunderso every time you race aheadI'm onlyseconds behind.because at night the stardustyou leave on my lipsmakes me want to shinebecause the spaces between your fingerssomehow exactly fit mine.
celiac boyit smelled like burnt hope and celiac and the boy on the hospital bed was beautiful with his bruises.his eyes are closed but his nerves are open, he feels his poison running through his veins.he thinks quietly,"I amfrozen wastelands of celestial summer-starsdusky oceans of moon-bright cratershaloed hurricanes of winter ice-tearssilent tsunamis of broken atmospheres" --it is 4 a.m. and while sleep has scurried timidly around his mind, thoughts like escaped zoo animals rampage. it is nothing but selflessness, everything but himself. all thoughts are present except sleep.he shifts in the dark and remembers and remembers and tries to forget.--the sunlight wiring its way through his auburn hair tastes of sinopia and gold. it weaves with the metallic shine of the table as we sit at the booth in the corner, closest to the arcade.it is all but deserted (the emptiness fills us inside) and through shafted light I wat
Piano PlayingI am a pianistAnd you are my piano, dear.I play minuets along your ribcage,Write love songs on your arms,And press your vertebrae like keysTo let soft chords fill the empty space.Your hairs are the resounding strings,Your lips are polished brass pedalsThat make everything loud and soft at the same time.Kissing you makes the whole world shift up an octave.I am a pianistAnd you are my piano, dearSo let's write a duet in the dark.
we could've had each other.i stare at the sun too longbecause no one else does it. myparents don't want me to getmixed in with "the wrong crowd" but who are theyexactly?the wrong crowd.my fingers slide between the gapsand hug yours as we drive. drive drive drive, please don't take me home.the redundant sound of the brokenair conditioner clanking and the boyin the back seat snoring keeps myheart racing even after we stop.even after he's gone.i want to be able to tell you everything,but i don't just have walls up now.i have boulders in place.
