    I haven’t seen you in a long time, but I know you’ll surface soon. When I need you most, you’ll come. You’ll torture and break and tear. You’ll save the essence that makes up my life. And I want that.

    talons of silver and black frost bite
    – the neck of the lovers at dawn
    sinking into a burning embrace

  • leah commented on the post, fasting 5 years, 10 months ago

    got a belly full of hate and poison, working with the darkest fuel, loving with the darkest eyes. Like I got a steel stomach- baby drain my tank, keep me fasting from the world’s rage and I’ll be just fine.

  • leah commented on the post, anchor 6 years, 2 months ago

    Anchor my heart a million times to the oceans skin, and to the sailors breath. Anchor my heart a thousand times to the caverns and trenches that line the earth’s floor. Anchor my heart a hundred times to the tide’s pull and the moons watchful eye. Anchor my heart ten times to swift currents and salty waves. Anchor my heart to that of the oceans…[Read more]

    You tied a knot on the back of your hand, and turned your skin inside out so I could see you weren’t holding back. But you’ve untied that knot, telling me i’m not worth it.

    Some people really need magazines, and I just don’t understand that. I’ve seen all the magazines on the self in the stores, I’ve seen them in the line of the grocery store. People, Cosmo, In Touch, and whatever […]

    To everyone else you are just an insect that flew by me one day, unnoticed and untamed. Everyone won’t know that you caught my eye that day, and still I keep watch as you fly away. How can you only be an insect to […]

  • leah commented on the post, popcorn 7 years, 3 months ago

    And I sat with my popcorn and my drinks and my life
    And I watched the screen without looking away
    And there were moments when I forgot who I was
    And there were times when it didn’t matter that you didn’t care

    Lift me if I have no wings left to fly
    For the earth is mighty
    And I am still so small

    you’ll have to be better than that to catch me

  • leah commented on the post, trunk 7 years, 5 months ago

    I often sit outside on cold winter days and listen to the tree outside my window. It cracks and creaks and tells me tales, whispering of the bare beneath. But in its voice I could hear a missing piece, a tale untold, an incomplete dream- so I asked the tree how this came to be. […]

  • leah commented on the post, flare 7 years, 7 months ago

    I’ve been believing in something;
    A flare of light, suspended in the air
    It doesn’t last long enough to catch
    It goes quick enough to want more

  • leah commented on the post, left 7 years, 7 months ago

    I’ve left my heart in the snow, in the books, in the music, in the words. I’ve left my heart in all the places that remind me of you. You’re the one who tore my heart from my chest, I hope you’re planning to use it for something meaningful. So, i’ll tell you now that […]

  • leah commented on the post, autumn 7 years, 7 months ago

    Like silver paintings, a smile to last a century Autumn breeze Colours of the farthest trees, burns shapes and sunset dreams Crimson field falls from the sky Twirling like ribbons, falling embers to the ground Water turns with the falls of leaves, leaving a dance of patterns Silhouetted forms sway from side to side You […]

    The old tires of my car lay absent minded in the frost. There will be no shelter for them, I no longer truly care for that which does not work.

  • leah commented on the post, sacrifice 7 years, 7 months ago

    Teeth sharp, wicked tongue;
    And I am begging you,
    Spark me a flame, blue and crimson.
    Deal me in,
    And I will beg you to chain me,
    To give me a ghost I can speak to;
    I can tell a story,
    If only you wouldn’t sacrifice
    My still beating heart.

  • leah commented on the post, conviction 7 years, 8 months ago

    For quite some time, I didn’t take no chances. Was a prisoner in my own mind. A wanted felon with no prosecutor. Now, I keep begging for a conviction- but you don’t understand, I feel the law might be corrupted.
