Just a blog for my poetry and corresponding art. I'm trying to improve, so all suggestions and critiques are welcome!


You can also check out my other blog, crystilate, for everything I like enough to reblog.

She
Says:

I tried to pop the
Pain out of my joints but it
just keeps coming back
Seeping back into my bones;
Pooling around them
again



And it leaves me wond
ering when her words became
So painfully succinct

I write down all my promises
(But my secrets I keep untold)
Before the dusk completes today
Just in case I wait in vain
(They’re currency in the Underworld)
For the dawning of another day

We think we’re flying
But we’re all just paper birds
Suspended on strings

It’s funny how we plant flowers on graves
Trying to console death with new life
(Even though we’re really just trying to console ourselves)

Hmm, I’ve been thinking. All of my poems are titled, even though I rarely post them with titles. Probably not, but would you guys want to see them?

I finally reached 100 followers!! Idk, maybe it’s not that many, but to me that is a whole lot more than I ever expected. That means there are 100 people in the world who want to see what I post, which is mind-blowing to me. Thank you to every single one of you, and I hope you continue to enjoy my blog :)

The moonlight filters through
The moonlight filters blue
I draw on-
and tell-
Myself: it’ll be okay
(When I was young my eyes were blue
Now it seems they’ve faded grey)

And every breath reminds me
How peaceful underwater is
If broken clocks are often right
Then broken people seem to manage
sometimes

(Blues my favorite color-
I see it everywhere)

Every drop of blood
Won’t, can’t, ever be reclaimed
So spend yours wisely

Each new tooth that grew
Pushed the old one out, pushed us
Forwards, towards death

If I confuse my words together,
Will that make them mean more to you?
I wonder if spacing them apart
Makes them harder on your ears, or easier
And if my mouth stumbles
Does that make me undesirable
Or human?

I speak the words but they don’t reverberate right
Maybe they’re past their expiration date
I study your face,
Looking for the numbers,
But all I get is a turned away cheek
With eyes and ears and lips
Closed tight
