Ocean Eyes

Turquoise eyes

Engorged in malaise,

Yet soothing like

Ocean waves

On a winter’s day.


I could not catch her drift

But I got near enough

To touch it.


She pulled back

Into the safe

Blue abyss,

And I lay








The fresh flavors of your body

Complimentary exceptional techniques.

Your delicately developed cuisine,

Your love handles, naturally perfect:

You are the daily feature.



Some nights
I just want to stop breathing
For a little while,
And forget everything:
The heartbreak
violence, oppression,
Misguided intolerance.
25 years young
Still writing love songs
But they fall on deaf ears.
Is anyone even listening?
It seems I've been walking
Down this path of tears
For eternity.
No one can find me,
Hiding in my insecurities,
Gasping from asphyxiation.
Here, there is no oxygen;
Just the scent
Of death's temptation.

Feigning Freedom

You cannot have something

And not have it


You cannot feign feelings

To keep someone around.

You cannot hide the truth

To hold on to a lie.

You cannot love someone

and make them cry.

Love is not freedom

It is sacrifice

It is imprisonment

Of one’s selfishness.

It is unconditional kindness

It is wanting someone

Simply for their presence.

Love is not broken promises

Adorned with passionate kisses.

Love is not a flame

Engulfed in a waterfall.

Love is either all in

Or not at all.

So how can you say you love me

But all you want is to be free?FreshPaint-0-2016.06.11-01.11.24.png
