tomorrow

Death has no dreams

no do-overs

But you and me love

are still alive

There is still dancing in the moonlight

mountains to climb

dreams to dream with eyes wide open 

and we might broken

we might be choking on yesterday’s regrets

but today we have tomorrow

to look forward to.

Ash

He wished for sleep,

the sweetest of dreams

to devour the saddest of days

I brushed his eyelids closed

and sprinkled the ashes of my heart

over his eyes.

Sleep snuck in

curling the corners of his mouth

and laid beside him the whole night long. 

sick

Reality is rabid

it claws and bites

and my thoughts are terrible

Irrational,

Sick

I wish death upon the guilty

and death upon the innocent

I wish you were here to calm me

Turn this darkness into something bearable

You turn your back

Pick up the fucking phone!

You’ve done this before

I hear the screams

This is the product of hate

I am trapped

In my self loathing 

denial

regrets

I want comfort and wine

I want to escape

But there is no escape 

It naws at me from the inside

I snarl

and turn my back

My heart is stone

I’ve done this before

Each time is worse

than the one before. 

Who do you love

who do you love?

Whose face do you see when you close your eyes at night?

Who do you dream about?

Who slips through your fingers like sand?

Who bleeds you like a sugar-coated razor blade across your tongue?

Who twists your guts in knots?

Strips your skin like ribbons and bows?

Don’t die with regrets 

Go

Run

Chase

Tackle

Bite

Struggle

Scream

Scratch

Tie them down

Make them yours
