When a Boy Tells You he Loves You

FREE WRITING

I used to 
stay up til midnight
being reminded of your milky way complexion
and the way the constellations that once adorned your face
had lit up an entire room

that face of yours told stories
and those lips
that whispered sweet nothings into my ears
ended  up telling lies too 

You told me 
i was the sun in your eyes  
but
you treated me more like a cigarette break 
you lit me up just to put me out and stamp me...

the cold will freeze our lonely hearts
but the Spring will spark us back

When a Boy Tells You he Loves You

I used to

being reminded of your milky way complexion
and the way the constellations that once adorned your face
had lit up an entire room

that face of yours told stories
and those lips
that whispered sweet nothings into my ears
ended  up telling lies too 

You told me 
i was the sun in your eyes  
but
you treated me more like a cigarette break 
you lit me up just to put me out and stamp me to your feet
and I'm not sure whether i'm okay with that....

we eclipsed before sundown 
two Geminis  intergalactic twitches
in the fabric of mankind

I used to feel waves of missing you but now it's more,
It's a tsunami in my eyes.
It's been a year since we last spoke and 

Im still wringing the sea water from my sleeves

Tuesday Entries

The weight of the days regret
hangs heavily from the corners of my lips
There's a sour metallic taste in my mouth
probably blood drawn from the lethal words I choose to keep to myself
& all day it seems
I've been scouring the ground for some lost key to happiness 
I'm not sure I can say I've every really found

When I can't stomach anything anymore
the old scars begin to resurface
and I think
even my body, this self proclaimed"temple" 
has betrayed me,
has waved a white flag to caging the beast that 
is my past self

fast forward and suddenly I'm shouting.
head bobbing veins popping and neck snapping
like the most resilient of twigs found un-triumphant 
on the eve of an autumns day

I will want to surrender to the thought that
hey its a privilege to even feel pain
but I know even Jasmine
wouldn't count my stars so lucky
not when there's narcotics and...

That Sort of Person

Mariama

Shes soft as a summers breeze 
But her company comes with a caresss
Just as interchanging and cold as the Artic Sea

Sometimes so busy helping others follow the light
that she fails to notice her own darkness engulfing her 

She's
The one who raises 
Both
Captivating and Peculiar
A Gift of Allah
مريم
