GROWTH

LIFE STARTS WITH THE COLOUR

YELLOW,

GREEN SHOOTS IN PLAYGROUND

GAMES,

RED RUNNING DOWN WHITE WATER

FALLS,

BLUE BECOMES TURQUOISE SALT WITHIN

SKIN,

GREY FADING WRINKLED ARMCHAIR

IMPRESSIONS,

BLACK.

Selfish

Selfish

“I have a habit of falling in love with souls who have yet to be at peace with their bodies, their minds, their weaknesses. I try to build them, to find the parts in them that are missing in me. I end up with holes in my chest.” -Farah Gabdon

I am a wild horse

With wide eyes of wonder.

I refused to be tamed,

To be smaller, quieter, less real,

Less Me.

I kiss the wind

And it caresses me back.

I have no interest in the weapons you bring;

Unless you intend to use them

On yourself.

GENIE

I wish for the world to

feel the stability of love

to float and see their body from above.

If only the world knew

what head-over-heels-in-love

means when it is yourself madly loving you.

No more should of, would of.

So many emotions threw

out of mind, heart, thereof

rejected alongside of

personal, internal abuse you outgrew

but open your mind, my dove,

do you not know how much you deserve self-love?

ENGULF

I do not stand by the window and weep as you leave. I do not stand by the sea and reflect on what I’m doing. I do not acknowledge my phone ringing, again.

Grow a pair of ovaries and stop thinking. Start doing.

I clench my toes and feel the sand compress beneath them.

The waves are salt and ice, kissing my ankles.

Have you noticed the way my hands form fists when you ask about the past?

Water on my waist always felt colder than anywhere else. My body tenses but does not stop. I have seen a desert in the water.
