tkashe takes pictures of herself nakedtka7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and watches the flash light her skin on fire
sometimes she feels the warmth from it
and sometimes not.
shes home alone every friday night
when her housemates go out for the weekend
the floor is cold under her bare feet
and an hour later the bottle is empty.
if she had a knife
shed paint a picture in her own blood
write something she would want you to understand
and when her flatmate came home the next morning
the ambulance would come
and shed be home again

its the time that i finally look at the clock,
and hear you there again.
i can feel you,
shoulderblades under my palm
as i edge you over,
and open my eyes to look at you
your open eyes smiling at me
and hands beckoning me closer
but you're gone,
you've been gone for months now, but i still wake up
i still feel you, hear you in my sleep
watch you sleepwalk out the door for a smoke
as you smile
and wonder how the night begins.
a cautionary talehe called me up one night, when the sky was closed and weta cautionary tale7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and i heard him sobbing on the phone
and all i could do was listen, and cry with him
while his heart bled out through his skin
"i remember being normal once
happy and whole. unfractured by the world.
and then i fell in love
and then i discovered euphoria
and i fell so fast and so far
that when you pulled back, taking your luminescence with you
and leaving me stranded
i discovered the deepest black i have ever known
and now it seems that i can't go back
to that first life where i was safe from this thing called love."
but who can help him now?
and who listens to caution when it's you who is falling?
i think i love you more than i've ever loved before
but i don't know if that is enough to fix you
please let it be enough.
i'm sick of having races
to see who's tears fall faster.
and i'm so deeply sad today
that it hurts to breathe.
and it's almost a relief to go back to that familiar feeling
because i know that i'll find you there
I QuitIf you were to die today I would not notice.I Quit7 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
If you were to disapear I would not take a seond glance.
I did forgive you for it, but i can never forget.
The memory of it will always lie within me.
In my sub-concious it will stay.
You will never make me feel inferior again.
You will not make me shed a tear.
I am not your slave, so don't treat me as if I was.

naked and shivering
when she walks in
my eyes break open
and for a moment
all i can see is the greens and blues
of her underwear,
pushed out of focus
by the drops in my eyes.
you sit on the edge
rocking back and forth
in your own purple haze
of track marks and razorblades.
the one i once belonged to
until i broke here
