I always used to reflect that the person with whom you spend your life should be someone you admire. Someone you look at and think, ‘You’re the best person in the entire world.’ And this troubled me, because it’s not how I felt. And then I met you.

All that time I was running around While your beautiful mind resides Didn’t know for what I was looking A moment in time, a celestial align? This, a dedication to that sure sign. Eyelids resting shut we melt Safe in your warm gaze Hands on hearts, Hand in hand. And when the day runs out […]

Emerald flickers in your alert gaze. Humidity swells, my chest screaming with pain As we enter the secret garden, casting aside its gilded frame. In your eyes’ orbit my moon and my stars. Persistent and infantile, colliding into an atomic bomb. Shards of love scatter like plumage tumbling through a still sky, To rest upon […]

Footprints on the shore, in a line. Crimson sunset shadowed and lengthened with time I squint and blink down and notice yours are gone. When and what did this, and how? For a while now it seems, And carrying me you are not. A thread of sand hangs between us, Knotting my heart And seeping […]

For Joseph.

I am a drunken sinner Scrawled upon the ceiling A wash of dread drags the blood from my cheeks as my eyes trace This wretched brand mark  Of shame and self-loathing Acid in a stomach  Flickers of a nervy heart  My esteemed exemplar Cherished paragon You are nothing but great and good In my eyes […]
