stumbling home full of
rum and ears still
humming the music they played until
early morning, trying to
tease the sun out of hiding
long enough for you to slip
your tongue between my laughing teeth
dragging the last bit of the
night sky over my tired eyes
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Moments Better Left Forgotten.”
Offering up flesh like
Unholy sacrifice, baiting sinners to sink their
Teeth into something richer in the hope it
Leads them into damnation
I can’t help toeing the lines of decency
No one is as good as you think they are
No lips are as soft as you expect when you
Plummet head first into them like a trainwreck
3AM Thoughts // AKA “You Lost Me When You Slipped Into Consciousness.”
I miss the way you
smell, your hair, the way your chest
held my heavy head.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 133.”
tricked you into thinking that
you were good for me.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 132.”
it was you, standing
at the edge of the world and
begging me to jump
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 131.”
My love for you lives
on, no matter how I try
to suffocate it.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 130.”
I only wish you
could see how much I have changed.
I hope you’d be proud.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 129.”
your name is the one
word I refuse to let slip
past my lips again.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 128.“
I could be everything you want if you’d let me but
I bet I would be gone before you got to see it through
Somewhere along the way in one of the many cities
I’ve been to, I left my heart at a bus station, waiting
On the bench for salvation that will never come.
3AM Thoughts // AKA “At One Point I Got It, Then Promptly Lost It.”
Anxiety is love’s greatest killer.
It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you.
You want to save him, but you know
he will strangle you with his panic.
