maybe, not

forbidden look at me and pluck out your eyeballs what is it that you desire? outstretched fingers graze your clenched fist a scarcity of love unfurls in my chest and salt outlines your face a ghost of a red scar right across your cracked fa├žade heartaches in abundance and torn gashes stare at you bloodshot…

what to do

do I let myself live with the overwhelming thoughts of her undeniable beauty perpetually flowing through my veins? or do I snap myself out of this never-ending reverie and start looking for better ways to spend my time? play the keyboard? football? swimming? should I look at the clouds and paint a pretentious self-portrait with…

Don’t

Ask me not how I shall love you, For my answer will include all my heart and soul Ask me not how I shall protect you, For my answer will include hope, blood and sacrifice Ask me not how I shall sleep at night, For my answer will include always keeping my eyes open for…
