cry baby cry
until you can’t
until you sleep
until you dream of a better tomorrow
will you articulate yourself?
wavering through heavy and light
catch a breath and make some sense
love sleeping with the window open
to hear distant cars whir
and leaves rustle
to feel cold air brush my skin
to see a thin crescent, silver in the sky
Let’s go on a stroll together
We’ll wait for the leaves to fall
and the air to smell like cinnamon.
There’s a mist about the air
and the roads have a dampness to them
damp with anticipation for winter
The air is cold and tickles your skin
Cozy and warm between layers
and our eyes pull down with contentment
the lining in my uterus is causing me so much pain
it is starting to rain
out of my vagina
eager for the note
i read hungrily with a smile on my face.
the wretched words.
they only bring about disappointment
tears swell and fall
the pain in my chest is unbearable.
it hurts, but i can’t stop myself from reading it over and over
waited for hours.
your world yesterday.
the dirt beneath your feet.
i feel devilish
with the chocolate wrappings beside the bed
past the midnight snack
devilish, chocolatey grin
