FREE WRITING

16
it is futile to
imagine i will ever
cease to love you and
if only for your smell and
smile and ease with which we fold

into each other
you make my skin fit me for
once we touch like farce
our skin is flower petals
feathers or rodin figures

you melt me softly
i will be vein artery
and capillary
or hang from your arm like fruit
sing songs of you into the

cosmos until stars
know your hymn like an atlas
tainted gold with stave
and sound and we the downy
dragonflies make mockery 

of the horizon
you are wings and wingless on
the timeline of the
world there's war and worship and
our lips we are history

it is futile to
believe that i will ever
cease to imagine
nestling in your palm as
raw as a hazelnut and

small enough to be
cushioned there in tender crease
and crevice sleeping
no smokes or sin or scripture
keep me in your heart and save

me

    oh god. i just came from your comment on my work and … wow. your ways with words are breath-taking and deserve a place among the likes of Shakespeare and j.k rowling. honestly - just wow! i wish i could write half as better as you, or even just to the point where i could evoke emotions like you did in this work. this is brilliant, and i wish for you to never doubt your ability as a writer for you have no reason to. if art had a form, it would be this.

    HOLY SHIT, MAN. I am your #1 fan, I don't even know how to begin. The way you piece words together makes me feel like I'm almost as clumsy with my words as my limbs. Your writing is so beautiful it's almost like its own art form. Language was nothing until people like you got ahold of it
