dead zone children

I sneak Tip toe sshhh Toes in dirt bare Dirty The water watcher Sleeps Night snarls echo Empty chamber tremble I can smell the blue The green The darkness of the pool The air is different down here Forbidden Only rations are allowed Only rations My lips crack When I smile these days Lizard tail… Continue reading dead zone children

my fears plucked

Him Biting off more than he could chew Porcelain teeth cut through my soft flesh Spat out my pieces The bits he found so distasteful Am I so distasteful? Displeasing disposable This taste, full heart The window in my new room In my new home Is wide open now Negative temperature air Floating through my… Continue reading my fears plucked

Both

The wild we run Both like Beasts Both like creatures of the night I run to you If home is where the heart is I have already given you mine Both chambers Both atriums Both ventricles You, both sweet and not Both good and not Both need and want Want and not don't rhyme, Amberley… Continue reading Both

ravenous lupine, once

Predator eyes on my skin I feel you stalking me You come for me I do not run from you Taking me down I scream for you Sinking fangs into my flesh I feel the change under my skin Full moon sky above I feel you coursing through me Ravenous lupine, once were man I… Continue reading ravenous lupine, once

away run run

Looking back on life What did you think would happen? Scarification ... Intimidation Only so much I could take Run away run run ... I am battle strong What did you think would happen?

the view around me

Break and accelerator. I just keep driving My hands firmly on the steering wheel but knuckles no… Continue reading the view around me
