• Marissa commented on the post, heatwave 7 months, 2 weeks ago

    Oh, it’s like a heatwave;
    when the liquid ruptures beneath the spleen
    and what’s left is acid-washed hands.

  • Marissa commented on the post, dining 8 months, 2 weeks ago

    You came to my table,
    with a wad of ones,
    and some crumpled mystery.

    I stopped writing for you, you know?
    It’s like a phantom limb that can only sometimes stop itching;
    and my voice is now lost in a faceless blur.

    I came to your table as sacrifice,
    with an apple in my mouth, a pig in my eye.
    Blink not once, but twice, when I cry.

    So…[Read more]

  • Marissa commented on the post, charge 9 months, 3 weeks ago

    You took charge,
    like you were built with a whip.
    A sharp tongue that could cut you down
    with only one quip.

    And I see the way
    your eyes stretch when you scream.
    It is hollow and intoxicating,
    without any gleam.

    So I hide, tucked,
    near the moon, in the starry night.
    This is just what happens.
    Turn off the light.

  • Marissa commented on the post, conflict 11 months, 2 weeks ago

    So the doors were like mirrors,
    when I slammed my fists against their surface.
    So little rays came from the sun,
    when our irises split, with shrapnel and debris.

    It was nothing but conflict,
    like raging war within the gut.
    You were nothing but the spirit
    of the eyes being open while shut.

  • Marissa commented on the post, automatic 1 year ago

    Just like that, so automatic
    with a heartbreak graphic,
    and a lame emphatic.

    You gave up, so fickle
    a tiny machine, you trickle.
    Stuck, again, in the pickle

    with you.

  • Marissa commented on the post, daisies 1 year, 6 months ago

    Like daisies you pushed me,
    but from six feet above.

    I didn’t know what to hold onto,
    only facing push and shove.

    You didn’t know the how to keep,
    and only showed partial love.

  • Marissa commented on the post, zone 1 year, 7 months ago

    In my zone, I saw the light
    tessellating down, like crystal aflight.

  • Marissa commented on the post, breakthrough 1 year, 9 months ago

    Like a scientific breakthrough,
    you come to —
    like standing from crouching, and the world is abuzz.

    I’d really like to tell you:
    when all the sunflowers grew anew,
    I saw your heart like a lightning strike connecting earth to sky.

    Oh, dreams of you, in the sunset,
    I cannot forget.
    Like a breakthrough, you come through; and I love how I…[Read more]

  • Marissa commented on the post, staged 1 year, 9 months ago

    Did you see how the stage was set for us?
    Like flowing water, you came from the hands of the moon;
    enter: stage right, I arrive at the shore.
    You come over me, with an ebb and a flow
    the wolf whistles to the sky,
    and I reach for you.

  • Marissa commented on the post, vines 1 year, 10 months ago

    Like vines, your thoughts crawl through my vein.
    you always knew I was subtle lying when smiling through pain.

  • Marissa commented on the post, tutorial 1 year, 10 months ago

    Teach me your ways,
    in tutorial format.
    My heart was removed from me,
    and placed on your doormat.

    I’d taken the controller,
    and been given a key.
    Oh, how you mean
    the very world to me.

  • Marissa commented on the post, element 1 year, 10 months ago

    You fell out of an element,
    with glares from the sun;
    life had seen no former precedent
    still i liked how the bullets shot from my gun.

  • Marissa commented on the post, contracts 1 year, 11 months ago

    I’m left with empty contracts you’ve given me.
    Here, coated in chills, I’m outlined with a memory.

    Am I just a trace now, or am I echo upon a whisper that kept you close?
    Am I a gilded wing? Or am I the sun that burnt you to a crisp, sir Icarus?

    I’m left with empty memories about you.
    There are newspapers without headlines,
    and how I…[Read more]

  • Marissa commented on the post, bond 1 year, 11 months ago

    An unspeakable bond lies between us,
    in your eyes and the links that surround.

  • Marissa commented on the post, ballot 1 year, 11 months ago

    I’d show you my ballot,
    if you’d show me yours.
    It’s at times like these
    when my mind insecures.

  • Marissa commented on the post, rattle 1 year, 11 months ago

    oh how you shook,
    how you rattled.
    my core couldn’t handle your way.
    and how tables turned,
    and all the walls burned,
    when I had asked you to stay.

  • Marissa commented on the post, crumble 2 years ago

    You are the ocean, where I ebb and flow,
    and where the rocks crumble.

    Shine on, you sea sand. Glisten under the sun.
    Our nights have been heavy, but our day’s just begun.

  • Marissa commented on the post, repay 2 years ago

    How would I ever repay you?,
    Said the strumpet to the sheep.
    There would be miles to go before we wake,
    and even more to go before we sleep.
    The moon is full and vibrant,
    while my arms are getting weak.
    The stars were warm and weary,
    and I kissed you on your cheek.

  • Marissa commented on the post, sweetheart 2 years, 2 months ago

    Sweetheart, oh,
    let me swing on your swing set again.
    Sweetheart oh,
    lets run from curfew,
    and imagine our problems are bigger than they are.
    Sweetheart, oh,
    you loved me like the sun greeting the glistening tide.
    I just wanted inside your room, and to know you.
    Sweetheart, oh,
    individually, we will never forget one another.

  • Marissa commented on the post, lunatic 2 years, 2 months ago

    Do you recognize my pieces,
    as they scatter through the rug?
    I was colors when I met you,
    now I’m lucky if I get grey-scaled.

    I saw you in shutter frames;
    for which, you moved too fast.
    I now see life through my facets,
    and everyone has left me alone.

    I wasn’t a lunatic when I knew you,
    but I was whimsical and eccentric, for sure.
    I…[Read more]
