I’m so tired of trying to sleep Honestly I’m exhausted What could be the harm, I wonder, In just staying awake forever Watching the world pass by me Dreaming with my eyes open   Advertisements

Message from a Trans

Click. Click. Click. A flame sparks to life. Blue and red and gold. Burns the blade of the knife. Flick. Flick. Flick. Grey metal turns to black. It chars as it heats. And I hold my breath back. Shh. Shh. Shh. The sound of searing skin. Slide the blade across my arm. To keep the…

Song of Viridescence

The kiss. A dream So real it seemed Your eyes are greener than the trees You make it possible to breathe And to the stars I’ll run with you Your are the earth I am your moon I only hope you feel it too Remind me why you love me. Who With lips that burn…

Transient

Isn’t it beautiful how the smallest things in life can give us pleasure… A shy smile. A child’s laugh. A gentle kiss. A touch. And isn’t it sad how the sweetest of those so quickly disappear from our lives… Is the loss what gives us meaning?   Image: Read to Know We Are Not Alone by haytraveler…

I love she who is like a drop of cleansing rain Glistening and cerulean Sliding against my tainted skin I love she whose eyes are viridescent jewels Wordlessly speaking and perceiving Piercing into my darkest corners I love she whose heart sings compassionately Even when wounded Granting solace and peace and hope I love she…

Lips

What I wouldn’t give To be the glass pressed against her lips As she takes Another sip Of that wine

Staring at the Sun

Before my eyes did see the sight Of this girl, I’d been blind; Content to see Or think I’d see The world and all around.   Before my eyes could catch the sight Of her in all her bliss, I likened sight Of things that might Compare to nothingness.   Before my gaze perceived the sight Of…

The Lips or the Eyes

Within my mind Doth the quandary arise; Which mesmerizes most, The lips or the eyes?   Viridescent diamonds. Coruscate stare. Arresting and piercing In pulchritude. Rare.   The lips tho’ too Are beauty besides. As lovely to see As much as the eyes.   Softer than sunset Painting the sky. The taste of eternity Upon…

Ode to a Viridescent Dream

My days don’t start til I see those gems behind her lids My breath can’t catch without her givin’ me a kiss And every day I go without her touch my heart  starts to split Ipanema’s got nothin’ on my chick The white sand that glitters with crushed glass can’t compare To the crème of her…

Voices

To you, they are quiet Tho’ to me, never silent. Composed I may seem but, Quite impatiently, Clambering demons Seek a chance or a reason To scuttle from my ears And breathe life into my fears.

“False Greatness”

“‘Tis true my form is something odd, But blaming me is blaming god; Could I create myself anew I would not fail in pleasing you.”   “If I could reach from pole to pole Or grasp the ocean with a span I would be measured by the soul; The mind’s the standard of the man.”…

Open Your Eyes or Look Away

I wish that you could see this love as more than something to spurn, mock, and abhor. I wish you could understand the way my heart aches and calls out for the one I adore. I wish you would not judge the ache and burn in my heart behind eyes that have not felt the…
