wasting mornings
trying to recapture dreams
like talking to ghosts

something fathomless and wild
rises in me
each time you pull me under

09.27.18 – 00.54

I was raped

by my cousin
in high school

But I let him
I wanted him to.

I wanted to kill myself, and I thought
he would help me escape

But he only helped me dig myself

i watch a lot of porn
i enjoy it
i like watching women
being coerced
i like knowing
that it isn’t real
that it can’t be real
because pain is just an extreme form of pleasure
our bodies my body
means nothing

6.15.18 – 04.20

the man the boy
who took my virginity
was 20
i was 16

i trusted him

i wanted him
to want me
but i lost a piece of myself
when i lost It
and i cried

and i lost it
and i cried
and again

and my boyfriend at the time

he was 20
i was 13
when we first started talking

he told me i cheated on him
but that he forgave me
but i didn’t want
him his forgiveness

every fiber of my being
is attached to every fiber of yours
and pulls me towards you with
a dull, pressing, numbing ache
but your body sears my soul
with all the promises you can’t make
so that charred bits and broken pieces
are all that remain

6.07.17 – 11.56

fear creeps in around the edges
consumes me in quiet dark
chronic, incessant
cresting waves of panic
fade into daylight

5.30.17 – 23.18

pearl-white moonlight
and gray clouds
shine still in the reflection
of an owl’s eyes
inflicting drowsy
heavy-lidded children
with nervous dreams
and pierce the night
with an eerie quiet calm
