I will not falter, fragrant soul
For those who trespass on my wealth of flesh

My feet are planted safely
& the certainty of you runs in my veins.


Love Letters To A Tattoo Artist (Love Me Tender, Love You Sweet)

There is something so vulnerable about tattoos.

You are allowing something to break your own skin
To accept a foreign object into your physical being, forever
It becomes an irrevocable part of you

I look at you like ink
A permanent etching in this life,
And hopefully the next

All I ask of you is to stay with me
We can figure out the rest together.
