Literature
A Message To Your Ghost
But not anymore, because I killed your ghost.
I emptied the skeleton of you from the back of my closet
and filled it with flowers that will never been pressed between
tearstained pages tattooed in broken poetry.
There is nothing left of you here.
Nothing but fluid memories and photographs from days
I barely recall having lived.

Literature
You Are My Favourite Disease
Beneath this sea a terror sleeps
An icy slow descent into madness, into a creeping, desolate freak show
Enter and the door seals behind you
You can taste the futility as clearly as you taste the blood your angry lungs force up, up,
You have never been this far down
There is a terrible sense of an ending
Death, the very embodiment of all ends stays close, never leaving sight were you to look over your shoulder
You don’t, of course
But you feel it, a little colder each day
Run, to the sunlight that warms the world on the other side of that door
Run, before you lose all perception entirely
Run, and remember what it is to breathe in more than ash and exhale more than panic
You can’t find the will to twitch

Literature
What You Took From Me
I was 13 years old, crippled by a bonecrunching weight that could not possibly belong entirely to me. I did not understand it then, I only experienced it. Struggled every day to survive it.
I wasn't grieving for my past nor my present, I was grieving for my most unimagineable future. I couldn't comprehend it at the time but looking back it was as if i foresaw this hell; the oppression, my demons, the loss, the destruction, the ultimate shattering of my soul entirely.
I saw this, felt this, but i did not understand it.
Until now
I wrapped my two spindly pale arms adorned with scar tissue around my sacred womb, as if to shield it from all the world and its endless evils. As if that was all it would take to keep her safe.
Now I know better.

Literature
83 Roses
last night,
you kissed my fingertips
one by one
and promised you’d never leave
again.
last night,
you kissed my forehead
as you reached out
and tentatively caressed my
aching heart.
but you wound a noose
of pretty roses
around my neck while i slept,
and when morning came, you had vanished.
when morning came,
i hung.

Favourites

Literature
laodice.
in summer the ghost of the girl who tried so desperately to hang me
with her own hair comes to me again, her wrists bound tight - a victorian
nightgown, the stretch of the fabric a taste on my teeth i can never forget
( contact allergy: the glue from band-aids sends my skin spitting and hot,
the new cells, grown inside as i was, finally brave enough to fight for air )
she blinks her heavy lashes at me and pulls the heat tight around my ribs.
they bend like a ship on the shore under the slime of greenrot and time,
but they do not break. they are not drowned, not her claim to rebuild with.
( if a ship sinks, and you replace it, is the sea not your right? if the
ground on land and sea claw for you, and you grow stronger at the ankle
for stepping through their claws each time, is that not your right? )
refrain of my first hospitalisation: i will be dead before i need glasses,
i will be blind in both of my eyes before a predisposition to short-term
anything lays claim on me. this is funnier

it is when weary men say "You cannot withstand the storm" that you must reply
"I Am the Storm."
