A Day In Which She Wasn’t Late (For Once)

We hold on to the strangest things,

in the ten minutes of turmoil,

from bridges to crosses.

I hold on to the other day,

to distract me from the crowded silence.

I hold on to the other day,

when I counted the seconds,

until I could count the characters in your reply.

Now I am waiting again,

buried underneath the dreams of the damned,

daring to dream my own nightmare,

where my heart hurts,

then heals itself,

as I twist it into whatever you desire.

I am built for your embrace,

holding the pole,

just to be safe,

resisting the urge to unfold into you entirely,

wishing I could,

wasting another thought,

on the one who is busy,

but hopefully,

still seeing me somewhere in his mind’s eye.

I am carrying my whole life in a case,

for a couple of days,

and for the first time,

on one of my many quests to escape,

I just want to go home,

to you.

Do you understand?

I don’t want to be alone,

for the first time.

I don’t want to be alone.

The Sadder But Wiser Girl

Seven AM,

and I’m staring rather than sleeping,

risking madness as I risk assess,

again and again,

how dangerous it is,

to be your little doll.

img_1538

Dropping your name in every dark boulevard,

I walk home,

all alone,

the moon can sense you’ve staked your claim on me,

and hides behind the clouds,

crowding all the stars around her breast,

leaving me with nothing but a dark night,

and a few brave but stupid rats,

trying to impress me,

fighting for scraps of the attention

that they know is no longer mine to give,

because when a boy is bad,

he owns the whole town,

and every inch of the girl he calls his own.

img_1537

Your reputation wrapped around me,

like a coat that commands loyalty,

based on bribery and fear.

I sleep in your sinful sanctuary,

the sadder but wiser girl,

searching the skies for the helicopters that hunt you,

lulled to sleep by a lullaby of late night gun shots.
