Tempting

To trust my heart; but I know its evils

I know my shivers and woes

I know my inconsistency, I KNOW MY SELFISH TENDENCIES

I DO NOT DESERVE SUCH LOVE

Who am I and what do I breathe 
This mess of fog and disease 
I beat my wings to cut through the smog
But instead, hearts around me bleed. 

Why can’t I help
Without
Hurting
Why can’t I let this love

In

It’s burning

Autumn

Well, again the leaf-dust swirls the air
And star-gazers sigh under blankets of slate
Dark-turning earth shivers far from the sun
The hearts are so hot that they crack and they break,

Unable to cope with the chill in the breeze.
They glimmer, glowing shards
Reflecting stars that {carve their names in my heart}

Like the coals that burn
In your gaze.

Season

For a brief time,
The sunlight will graze my eyes

And my words will haze and thrive

And the colors will paint my pain

Roses and thorns and stains

The grating will give way to whispers
The blossom will silence the scream

i will reflect on the stars and on wonder
(do you love her?)

Until the aching returns to my dreams.
