Your Body Is Your Home. Don’t Burn It Down

I.
What happens when the foundation gives in heaves?
I do not want to die
But she who must go on does not feel the same
She shakes
& I can feel her skin blue
I am no longer living in this body

II.
Where do I run when the fire starts?
The smoke consumes me
My first & last thoughts are always of you.

Love Haze

We made each other come alive
And I never minded the pain of what that entailed
Our highest highs were worth the lowest lows
Or at least, I remember it that way.

I have captured moments I never wanted to let go
Like the fire in your eyes from the moment you woke, pristine & jade
Or
Kissing under the rain, mud-ridden & dirty
Heavy metal music stomping through the air, passion dancing at our feet

I wish I could feel the way we felt together again
Pure electricity flowing through our harrowed hands
The air thick around us at every breath.
