IRL

I used to stare at your picture

Now, unbidden, pinpoints of sensation ripple across me

My body remembers in waves

My spirit, trapped in the night that danced across your eyes

Red nineteen

The thing that had worn the flesh of a wolf
Crawls towards me
Corrupting the ground where it moves
I see the face of my fear.
My breath is spirited away

I rip out my heart,
Inverted in defiance.
I pay the expense of my defense.

We both fall

And rise again


Subsoul

We sat in a park and giggled at your insecurities

 

I felt her forearm warmly restraining, against my neck, when I savagely tried to attack the sky.

 

She ate all my cookies while I tried to find her a t-shirt to sleep in

 

She just stared at me as I wept.

 

You can’t have your soul back, I can’t find my own

 

Resting in the vacancy at the centre of my chest

 

She puts her lips to my fevers

 

I keep my cool
