    Hearts are for
    Lovers
    Writers
    Artists
    Losers
    Teachers
    Convicts
    Children
    Paper
    Chests
    Thoughts
    Love
    Death
    Breasts
    Survival
    Everyone
    Maybe no one.
    For sure
    not he who he who steals them.

  • Taylorly commented on the post, autumn 7 years, 6 months ago

    Autumn hair shifts over his ear, following the movement of his head. He looks at me. It matches the seasonal foliage. Red lips smile. He steps over the swamp of wet leaves clinging to its king, rotten stump. I step back; plenty of room to stay at least a mile apart. Another step forward. Retreat. […]

    hits the ground
    hard
    in patterns
    like drums
    there’s thoughts everywhere
    there’s silence everywhere
    there’s blood everywhere
    someone help me
    pick these brains up

    That’s all I needed to know,
    walking away from you.
    Im not going to make eye contact
    –for fear that you’d realize
    I had lied.

    Shiny black falling gracefully with every movement.
    The deepest brown peering back.
    Long strides aross the yard.
    Good dog he says,
    taking the ball from her mouth,
    Good Scout.

    His heart slammed against the inside of his chest.
    His ribs and lungs cowered at the noise,
    begging the heart to stop–
    for fear that the cavity would cave in.
    His palms, slick with sweat, patted his breast reassuringly.
    There was no punishment to be had today.

    of books on the floor by his leg
    as he turns the page
    the rain on the window gets louder
    it’s quiet save for the bulb above his head
    these stacks of books are quiet today

    out my body.
    hiss.
    hang it up.
    repeat.
    it looks so much better up there,
    where I am not standing in it.

    The king
    Le roi
    knew so much
    tasted the world on his tongue
    abundance on his table
    skin on his chair
    the gold of the sky belonging to him
    for all his troubles,
    to get here today,
    not one could he find
    to make him happy.

  • Taylorly commented on the post, setting 7 years, 7 months ago

    It sits on me
    Heavy like a bird
    I wish I could fly
    to another setting
    screen
    time
    place
    please, sun,
    help with the setting.
