“9 p.m.”

We sit on opposite ends of a couch.

Too afraid to touch each other's skin
To grace the heat upon the body
once intertwined in which we became one.
And we lose moments upon moments
Forgetting the endless father clock that will stop ticking
And each day has a rise and a fall
with dawn and sunsets arrive new beginnings.
We are glued to the idiosyncrasies of the monotony
carried on through advertisements rushed at our eyes
Blazing music heard through bass filled speakers
and the sound of a child crying out for attention.

For if we break this silence, this code-

one of us loses.
through battle and heart ached war we have seen
pessimistic days filled with tongue lashings and awkward pauses
ignoring physical presence and tyrannical domination

and I speak

ever so humbly. walking on glass that splits my naked feet
my wounds open and hemorrhage the definition of myself

“My Muse”

You will be my muse.
The muse that I often equate and correlate to
Harsh poetic lines filled with anxiety and pain
Only to be re-lived, re-birthed and a phoenix rising again
You will be my muse.
You will be the spark to my creativity
the knowledge that I gained
the power that I control and create
The positivity that rules over disdain
From you, I will become
the strength that was always in me
the endurance that pained my eyes to see
the brave spirit which my-self tried to flee
You will be my muse
And with this, I say I refuse
to become the epitome of bitterness.emptyness.lonliness
in which
I fly by the true knight which by angel flight will
rest his head upon my breast at night
You will be
my muse.
My smile to the end of your reign
the new beginning which I am me again
the beat in my heart that does not question when
I will fall in love again.
you will be, so sweetly my muse.
And I thank you.
So humbly, thank you.
