To My Next Lover

I’m Cheyenne, shy for short. Nose kisses are my favorite and I think onions should be obliterated. I tend to be so awkward I want to throw myself out of a moving car, but just know I’ve never felt more at home than with you. I'm not very funny but I will laugh at all…

Second-choice Lover

Plastic cup Full of wine, Tastes of anguish and disgrace. A song talking of lovers Who weren’t meant to be plays In the background, Blood from unhealed wounds fills the room. I can see your face seep into A soft loneliness, You are thinking of her again. This is not my first time As a…

Ghosts Make Me Feel Alive

Hellos Have always sounded like goodbyes, They are gone before they are ever fully here. Tracing the marks I etched over my walls. Those sweet words Mixed with poison, Scare me the most I eat them up each time, Always asking for more in the end. My name like feathers In their mouths, They pick…

Aphrodite Kissed You

Your soul A love letter Written in cursive. Carefully woven together, Flowing Abruptly Into my skin As if it were the sea Beckoning my name. I let your smile Wash over me, For a moment I forget About The rain cloud That rests above my head, Oh how will I ever forget Your sunny disposition?

Sun King

Blank Thoughts

Despondent daydreams And Vacant eyes. With a closed mouth, You say to get a clue. I can see it clearly, She’s the only girl you think of, You see her in everything like I do with you. Make believe there isn’t Light years between us, But those empty kisses Keep filling me up Im bursting…

Sorry That I Couldn’t Say Goodbye

It’s been months, your grenadine kiss Stained on my lips, They tasted of new beginnings. The freckles on your body A road map I followed, Lighthearted angel, I can’t take my Eyes off of you As you leave. What do I do When looking at someone else Feels so much like a sin, Your smile…
