The Interlude

Living in the interlude, I struggled to find peace, distracted by what had been, and desperate for what was to come. I waited for life to begin again– delayed in the interlude. Time stood still. An uninvited pause between movements, with nothing remarkable to show for myself. Ticks of the metronome, I felt dull, restrainedContinue reading “The Interlude”

Broken (collab with audio)

You broke my heart in so many ways but I never told you about any of them. I covered them up with humour and laughed at it instead. I hoped you’d never hear the ache in my voice during all the times we talked. I smiled so you’d never see the loneliness in my eyesContinue reading “Broken (collab with audio)”

Salting my wounds

I grab a handful of salt rubbing it into the wounds of my mistakes,berating myself for thinking things I mustn’t and wanting things I shouldn’t.

I am captivated by the unusual and overlooked rarity in people. If there is gold in someone, IContinue reading “A Glimpse of Gold (with audio)”

The Fantasy

I know I shouldn’t have,but I fantasized about us today…and in my mindwe were so great together. I imagined your tongue teasing mine, making me breathe harder and faster. I pictured sitting in your lap pressing my hips into yours, arching my back as you kissed down my neck and into my open shirt.  I thought about your handsContinue reading “The Fantasy”
