towers

don’t forget that giants fall just as easily as men. from high above your castle tops, your highest floor, your pillar of comfort, you’re just as capable of hitting the cold, hard earth.

twist

a distortion between time and space. you slip through, unassuming, a cosmic wanderer, a starry stranger.

camouflage

we were not happy but we knew how to play at looking like we were. ask questions like “how’s your mother?” and “have you been doing well?” our faces were not masks. masks couldn’t change. couldn’t bend shape to convince someone of their authenticity. we laughed the sound of bells from the bottom of our stomachs, because we knew pain, and because we knew what it felt like before it came. and we’d give anything not to give it to someone else.

done

we chose the path we went through. fought when we needed to, made love when we wanted to. things weren’t always easy but they were always good. even when they were bad. i wouldn’t choose any other path if i could go back and do it all over again, but i don’t think about how it could have gone differently. because in the end all it is is gone.

undo

if we could go back and start again from the beginning, you know that we would. maybe this time we would use all our wisdom and all our learning to love better this time. give a shot that really counted, for once. maybe we’d have lasted this time, been something worth remembering. been something worth writing about. or maybe we’d do the same love, all over again, with all its hurt and all its lessons. because how else would we have come to love as we do today?

recovery

a tree falls in the middle of the woods. and the forest competes for its space. nothing of the trunk is wasted, each inch of it coated in a verdant luster of leaves and fungus. from its rotting corpse grows new life again, a rebirth, a recycling. a testament to the will of the earth, that though its pillars, fall it will grow again.

opportune

i was only waiting for the right moment, that period of time where all of life’s events would line up perfectly. you’d drop your books and i’d rush to help you and we’d glance at each other, giving an awkward smile. look into each other’s eyes for a brief moment and glimpse a future that could be.

jewelry

a shimmer on your neck or a gleam on your wrists. a humming tune sliding up your elbows, peeking out over your shoulders. you are my brightest diamond. you are my richest gold.

sleeve

underfoot and under wraps. you could have stuffed me up your cuffs like a magician’s trick and i’d have sat there until you decided it was time to put on a show. but the trick got old and even fake flowers have to be thrown away eventually, so. so. so. you threw me away, too.

neat

you could have folded me up and left me in the corner for ages the way things were going. i was convinced it was because you were trying to keep me safe. that’s what you said, anyways, right? that it was how you treated friends. but i found out soon enough you were just keeping me for when you felt like bringing me out. and i’m not your favorite t-shirt. i won’t wait around for you anymore.

attractive

tell me my flaws look as good to you as my form. tell me no little white lies to earn a smirk from my lips. i will fall for you just as easily if you are honest. i will love you just as earnestly if you are true. so be true to me. make a love worthy of a lengthy goodbye.

clip

can we just flick back the tape and rewind to a point in time when we didn’t feel like this anymore? i just wanna feel like myself again. i just want us to feel like us again. i’m tired of you looking me in the eyes like being with me is an act of service instead of something you wanna do.

headquarters

we are back to the same places we’d always been. the places we relied on to remind us who we’d always been. i never forgot, you know. the idea of us had been conceived here in little bits and pieces, meshing together into something stronger. something that rang with the clarity of a bell until one day you knew what i knew.

anonymous

there is no glass house of emotion this time. things are not as transparent as they used to be. you want to know why but everything is a gray screen now, everything is masked figures and unknown faces. we are not friends anymore. i don’t know what we are.

crook

in the crook of her neck he fell in love for the first time. the way her hair fell gracefully onto her shoulders, a controlled waterfall, a cascade of follicles.

globe

to trot the earth in finger-steps! you’re not far away at all. my pinky and thumb testify to it. and if i think, if i dream, not only are you close, but you are here, with me.

maestro

ah, the click of fingers and a twirl of your thumb and i am playing that same song i always do, lilting off your toes and tingling off your lips. soft like morning, gentle like stars, a lullaby for any tiredness. i would sing it again and again if you asked me to. but you never ask. so i never do.

amused

a wry turn of her lips gave her away within seconds, even as she replaced it with the same placid face.

“oh,” she said, feigning surprise, “is that so?” he grins wider than her, and touches her hand, feels a pulse of lightning jolt up his spine from the contact. shaking his head, he twines his completely in hers. he leans in, his lips kissing hers softly enough to wonder if they had even touched at all.

locket

i held the mass of gilded bronze in my hands, peered into the images. tried to see you inside. tried to find some semblance of the way things used to be, patch over the memories of you leaving and repeat the ones where you were still here, so that it would be like you never did leave. saw myself instead. saw myself instead.

gesture

i haven’t got a whole lot of strength left in the place where it comes from. i know that the things i do won’t seem grand or magnificent, and sometimes you’ll go days without noticing i’ve done anything at all. the truth is some days i am tired, and a small wave of the hand will be all i can muster. a gentle breath from my lips that says, yes, i am still going, tired as i may be.

pity

he looked down at her like a dog, swiveling his head side-to-side like a hen. clucking with false tenderness, he patted her head gently and mocked her by dangling his golden clock in front of her. she swept her hands underneath him so quickly he would have never even known she had a knife. in seconds, she was running down the alley at a breakneck pace, a whimsical little chain dangling from her fingers.

apologetic

you waved your hands like a white flag, hoping the ceasefire would last long enough for one of us to get a few words out. we loved like battleships; we would throw as much as we had at each other, until one of us — or both of us — sank. but we weren’t made of iron, were we? and when the armaments finally stopped falling, we looked at the burns and cuts on our hands and wondered if it was even possible for one of us to win.

doubt

a gnawing at the corner where the chambers of your heart meet. feel it like a loss, the dissolving of the stone you thought you carved together.

flattened

the weight of things feels heavy, heavy, heavy on my back. some days, i carry it like proof of my existence. look at this, i say, this is how strong my spine is. some days, i carry it like a burden. look at this, i say, this is what i bear each day. some days, though, i let it sit. place it on the ground, rest a while. look away, i say. today i am tired.

footsteps

hmm, the twinkling of toes down the stairs let me know you were coming. soft like rabbit’s feet, socks muffling the tripping of your ankles against each other. i smiled like rising. i could feel you warming up. you pounced, and we were all arms, all tangles, octopus lovers trying our best to laugh with the confusion. we tumble, and i am happy.

never

i slid upon the same globe you disappeared between the lines of. if i’d known you had not intended to come back, i’d have shut the door behind you. i’d have thought twice before getting the “welcome home” decorations.

conviction

a clenched fist. an upward shout. a shake of your head. that’s enough, you shout, that’s enough. you’ll go no further, you’ll come no closer, you’ll inch no more. you are the william barrett travis of determination. you draw your line in the sand, say, this is as far as you come. any more and these arms become cannons, and i’ll sink your ship whole.

retreat

the arc of my spear-throwing hand stopped midway through it’s path. through my eyes, i saw hellfire and ruin. my hands were black with the ash of it. it filled my lungs. i blinked and felt the breaths of my own soldiers, the enemy’s soldiers. blinking again, i turned around. i tore a patch from my shirt, called my men to a halt. swept the rag around my spear, waved it to the enemy. saw it mirrored on the other side.

grateful

hold a cup of my spirit up to your lips. sweet, sweet nectar down your throat. grandness is not a feeling, it is a being, and today you are grand. i would have you feel no less. i would have you be no less. wake up, spread your eagle wings like the sun’s rays. i am so proud of you today. today you did not act an angel, and no one called you one. today the feathers fell from your tunic of magnanimousness, and the angels gazed upon you and embraced each other, hoping one day one of them would be great enough to be called you.

imagined

i closed my eyes and felt the orbs floating above me. their rainbow shadows seemed to wiggle into my pores, to become the shape of my smile. i reached up and touched one, and it balanced easily on my hand. inside, i gazed and saw eternity. inside, i gazed and saw anything i could dream of.
