I read it all the time and would like to join but need an invite :(
i told her exactly why i like her
the renaissance shape of her lips
the tiny marks on her back that make her skin
more like mine
the breath on my neck
as we embrace
the rain thuds heavy
time doesn’t wait for your acceptance
time waits for the being within you
allowing unbeknownst evolution.
then one night; incidents suppressed; forgotten,
time allows you to see it’s creation
expelled from you
it is punishment, clarity and redemption
and with realisation comes responsibility
through your own substance abuse
signals your own undoing
after all, they were innocent.
they were the only one.
walking through town, new year’s eve
my reputation has preceded me, and the
tattered remnants of the evening lie at my feet.
i turn to you, the only source of tranquillity
then we voice our thoughts
and the child that never was
knows my sorrow.
