An overly introspective child trying to create something beautiful.

My pronouns are they/them; I identify ironically as a cryptid and seriously as agender.

Message from Writer

Hey, you! Yes, you.
You are beautiful.
You are human.
You will make mistakes, but your mistakes do not define you.
You will do great things.
I promise you, only the best of your dreams will come true.

a rose

FREE WRITING


you were holding a rose // like a mirror // reflecting the colors of your soul
I lived for the light // in your eyes // when you saw me approach
you said I looked lovely // in your soft honest voice // reaching towards my face
you put the rose // behind my ear // I could taste the honey scent
you caught my eyes // just for a moment // and I knew I was lost

when I...

here it's sunny all the time

FREE WRITING


here it’s sunny all the time and that’s fine, I guess
if that’s your sort of thing but sometimes I
just want a bit of rain, a shower just to wet my mind
petrichor in my throat and droplets clinging to my hair
and I want forests, lush their green not muted
cacti and palm trees may be lovely in their own way
but sometimes my soul just wants to be a moss-covered oak tree
hiding squirrels in my branches...

Keep Me / Safe (an overly complicated poem)

FREE WRITING


keep me                          safe
from drowning                 in my head
save me                          with your voice
even if                            I’m going under
the light is blinding          I’ll close my eyes
to the vision                    of a child
of a bitter teenager         who had too...

mortal god

FREE WRITING


the plum sweetness drips into her mouth
runs down her throat in rivulets
her teeth stained burgundy as she smiles
so soon fruit rots for careless feet to tread it into the ground
a fitting offering to a mortal god

the powdered earth coats her darkened hands
stings the cuts on her feet
her dirty head thrown back as she laughs
pain doesn’t seem to matter as much when she knows it will soon end
gods don’t have time for...

where to find me

FREE WRITING


it was something little
but it hurt so bad
and it broke me open and I
couldn’t breathe in the sudden
lemon wind, and I
knew my tears were as sweet as rain, but
every drop fallen was another
no longer inside my head, and I
couldn’t hear the song for the sea, and
no one knew where to find me

it was something simple
but it felt so strange
and it slipped from my hands and I
couldn’t retrieve...

defective

FREE WRITING


I feel defective, as if
someone long ago at my creation reached
into my head and rearranged every other part of me
a mediocre tinkerer
for every part that ticks faster, more
efficiently, there’s a hundred
more that never seem to fit and
I can’t hold this all inside my
head so it spills out onto
pages and screens and comment sections
black ink and orderly fonts cloaking
the chaos that is of me but not mine
