Treasured Literature

w
when you emerge
the ones who loved you in your cocoon might not like when you get your wings
B
Beauty in the Mundane
I wish for you to fall in love with a poet; for they see beauty even in the mundane.
W
Withering
I never knew the numbers that consumed you. You calculated pounds and sizes and calories in the silence of your head, and by the time I realised what you were doing the habit was rooted as deeply as your bones. I offered you silent support, because I had nothing more to give you, and because it was the best I’d ever had from you. It was far too late when I learned you needed more than silence. Far too often, I’d missed my chance to speak: because I was slow to see what was happening, slow to hear your cries for help; because I thought you must know best, as always; because I was afraid to misstep, to overstep, to risk your ire; a

you should know
it's impossible, no one can ever love you more than you deserve.
F
Finches at Night
the finches at night are sleeping hearts pressed soft, like flowers in an empty hand small feathers breathing sister thoughts
I
Impressionism As Prayer
It could be the inside of the bell of a carillon as it sways, the jutting shadow of buildings rising in the tarnish, and patina swapping shadow for sunset, for dawn, for sunrise; as you leave bleeding into the rain  --   the stained glass made pliable again, unhardened from the fire of angels battling as you fall into a white patter on the stoop the release of a burden; the toll of the hour later on burying you into the twilight the whittled stump of a flint where you needn't stare as you did into rows of candles until they meant something; as you move along lifted  --   scattered, thrown past windows into the intermittent flash of gh
I
Imminence
the tulips have expired . soon i will walk the asphalt trails skipping rocks from sticking tar to pockmark pothole puddles soon the mountaintops will burn the skies to crimson sunset smolders singe my lungs and call for empty prayers and even now (even now) I bow
M
Moving In Ritual
Like keys no longer at the tips of your fingers  --   strings, or strands of hair this habit is in still stepping lightly so as not to intrude upon your wander, your sleep  --   is a post-parting met with the long sob lodged behind walls like an embolism waiting to burst, carpet dark as funeral  --   the inheritance of silence;   of dust filled haze that opens to the past bearing you; a slow-motion crash of nature pulling the spirit of you against her breast like a blanket I no longer need  -- her efflorescent hand folding over you; your soft wreckage spilling from binders on the closet floor just short of your heaven.
S
Shine Through
    You were always meant for more.    You just…could never see it.    How could you?  The world around you made every conscious effort to hold you down, gag your spirit lest you end up alone.    But, you fought.  You fought with such valor to put those chivalrous knights to shame, silently screaming through your wordless declaration that you would not go away.  You would not be made to hide.    Not from everyone.    Even as the world beat you down, and you broke over and over with each knife that plunged into your back, your heart, and so many other places, somehow, your soul would not give up.  Even after all the pleas throw
P
Pegasus Was Lost
We were juxtaposed; you and I, circling each other like a pack of hungry wolves. Your hungry eyes gazing deep into mine and all I could think about was how did you know my name? We went stargazing and you held my hand in yours, asking me about my favourite food while I attempted to remember the Latin phrase you spoke to me on our first date. I desperately tried to rewind broken clocks in an attempt to go back to that day and hear you say it again; I knew it would be almost orgasmic. The day we sat down for tea, I read your fortune in the leaves; nothing but good, I said, though nothing but bad was what I saw. But then- you lef
