"Just call out my name..."







Activity


i.
I am
the cancer
in your lungs.

ii.
Nine years ago,
we tumbled
on plastic and grass blades
and were happy.

iii.
You are
the sickening pulsebeat
behind my eyes.

iv.
Two and a half years ago,
we plastered blue over mold
and were happy.

v.
We tangle
fingers to knees
in a constant freefall.

vi.
Three days ago,
we wrangled
heat to gravity to embrace
and were happy.
How Time Flies
:iconglory-be-project: Day 120382309230193201298301983 or something very close to that
Loading...
You twirl threats
past my ears
and regrets
down my shoulder blades.

I am caught
between the tides
I cannot control
and the razors
I do not swallow.

You work as hard as you can
to inadequate me beneath your soles,
and I work as hard as I can
to go along with it.
Adrenaline scrawls the blood
through your veins, stretches graffiti
over parchment bones.

Anticipation clutters your heart
in oil, and anxiety scratches
from yellow to orange
across stumbled ankles.

Ardor gauzes your eyes
from the sun, and agony
contracts your fists to fingernails,

but avarice
seals your lips
to symphony.
Lust
I think I'll be back like I was in about a week or a week and a half, people! I've missed you! You have no idea. :heart:

I wrote this about a month ago. I've been debating on posting it. So here, have a very-debated-over poem. What do you think of it? I know I've been sincerely awful at responding to all of your wonderful feedback; I promise I'm on it soon!

So I've been taking a bit of an unintentional hiatus, and it's going to continue for the time being. I'm sure I'll still be dropping in here and there to see how things are going, and mostly I have OCD to thank for that. :P Things are going MUCH BETTER, I am happy to say, but I just have a lot of things happening all at once. It's a little overwhelming. So for the moment (hopefully only a week or two), I have to take a step back. (I feel like I owe you a bit of an apology, hopeburnsblue, after you so generously extended my premium...I don't mean to waste it. I really am sorry. :()  I miss you guys, and I promise I'll come back as soon as I can.

I know I have a couple of collaborations in progress - I haven't forgotten! I've been having a really inconvenient bout of writer's block lately, so...yeah. Once it clears, I promise to shoot each of you a note so we can get going! I hate writer's block. By the way.

So, stay awesome. Stay lovely. Stay positive. Stay strong. Stay deviant. All that jazz.
