sky pirates
i often dream that we're sky pirates - flying through the clouds on impossible dreams, high on unbridled smiles. we would keep going higher until we transcended the world, and left it all behind - breaking out on our own - two astronauts who have never been in space before.

we're up to our knees in rushing water, you turn back to smile at me and it reaches your eyes. the current threatens mutiny, but you're there and smiling as if nothing is wrong. fearfully frozen; a vision of being pulled under, free to let go, a ransom to be paid. i mumble something; no doubt searching for childhood pets and long buried parents. we would have been holding hands once, but not today, you are so far ahead - dancing carelessly through the deluge. there are some things we'll never do together - ice skating, bedtime stories, throwing plates maybe some words we'll never get to say.

kiss me, only me, wrap your arms around me like a noose, catch my breath for me, and take it away. your lips glisten, dripping with pity, they strike glass words, shattered into shards, dishonest affairs. dismantle my perfections, like clockwork, take me apart, leave me in pieces, inadequate. throw out your electric nets, asphyxiate every part of me, just to acquire a lustful piece. cauterise my gushing wounds, my empty veins, with your blazing touch, ignited from small dancing sparks. leave your mask on, your eyes could write love letters, but your lips could break the illusion, let me have this.

belladonna.
The walls were thick and spongy; Absorbing all her thoughts and memories. She was never apart from her colourful socks. Her voice; a sharpshooter aiming to assassinate; Reverberated deeply through the infrastructure. She thought thrillers could only be watched at night. Daring as they come, the virus was contagious. Her smile was toxic- a pool of perspective. She loved listening to silence. Multitudes of aspirations; hers; dripping through me. An invasion of the mind and body- her venomous vows. There was never anything she couldn't do. She grew in me like a cancer; a mutated mirror. I was her bane and her Achilles heel. She spe

to fall from grace.
I watched as my body was ripped apart, Piece by piece. Enraged as my chest was dissected To reveal the itinerary of past promises And the once ensconced tales of trials and consequences. I imagined myself as an angel, A heavenly celestial being, Standing on the edge of a pivotal cliff-face. Faced with the ultimate dichotomy An impossible, inevitable choice, Between the soaring grace of God's wings And the liquid grace of a pale descent. Dejected and grieving as The skin on my fingers and toes was unraveled, The poor, pitiful bones exhumed To reveal the truth of the marrow, Regrets etched and hopes scorched. The seraphim, re
