/I adore you./

    |I'd whisper the words to you.|

I'd be like Narcissus whispering to his reflection,
but only if you asked
in that honey-sweet in meaning
broken-glass gravel in sound
voice.

    |I'd kiss every Icarus burn of yours.|

Until the imprints of my love were waxen wings
on your skin,
but only if you beg
like mere mortals beg
for Fate to spare.

I'd peck kisses to your...

a short, messy piece about birthday blues because when you're having an existential crisis a week before your birthday, scatter sprinkles on the pages of your journal

i'm a deer in headlights

as candles flicker in front of me;
as close family sings around me;
as i miss the phantom touch of your hand grasped in mine.

the memories of you drip like wax down a melting candle.

birthday cake tastes like your chapstick;

[even though i know you won't].

my father’s betrayal is engraved onto the callouses of my hands.
    it is a footnote in every essay i write.
it is the adrenaline that flows through my veins as i run.
