that we sense
like wings fluttering
in the shadows
or chest rising with the effort
so fragile in the wind
shards of memory
piercing the stillness
and screams silenced
the lashes to our eyes
hurt and bleed
and wound me
so close to breaking
I can see the cracks.
and begin to disintegrate
the holes patched
the pain "forgotten"
(as if things

whispers in the ink
and music that sings

Lies.Her skin was so tight and crisp and with my touch it seemed like it melted away.

To His Coy Mistress[es]i. earl and lady grey
you have often graced me with your soft-spoken company, bergamot blossoms adorning your dark hair, fragrant as your steamy exhalations. you remind me of simple home and something untouchably elegant, pale and supple when i dress your skin with pallid cream and soften your thin, graceful hands. on a bleak winter evening, snow glittering by lamplight, you are a royal pleasure: a warm complement.
i will lay you on the finest saris, those embroidered with gold threads and flawless diamonds that shimmer like your black eyes. you are the champagne of my harem, floral yet astri
