Used Thoughts Of The Silence

I used to dream in tongues In languages left unspoken Fear of knowing Fear of being the one Twisted in the moment of falling behind Running in the wrong direction  Being lost to time Finding a place to call your own  Then losing the key Fearful memories Alone at last Drunken nights I forget my…

Fragile Pieces

I have taken a liken to my hands, to the way you left them. Mangled bruises but only on the surface.  Beneath you left me with tactile changes of my character.  I trace these lines to their source  And find they run much deeper than this feigning of disingenuous compromises Bent over the wrong way…
