Burn

I feel this
deep need
to see the green
To feel it
To wallow in it
To let it touch
every inch of my skin
The green
that sets me on fire
Fan my flames
and make me burn
I'm beginning to love
the feel of it

Unexpected

You asked me to bleed
So I did
Right from my heart
Then you held
my words
Like a feather
on the wind
It was so easy
to pour into you
That I wonder
Where it is
you've been

Under Water

I used to love
The taste of your tongue
Until you held
my head under water
Then blamed me
for not having gills

Passivity

I pray 
like I fuck

Carelessly
and without
Adoration

Conform
Comply
Submit

Isn't that what
they want

That's what he wanted
And that's what he wanted
And that's what she wanted too

Drip with passivity
and they'll do it
gently

Don't agitate
Don't turn
Don't breathe
too loud

Don't exist

Keep your opinions
to yourself

And don't question
them
Don't question
them
Don't question
them

Agree
Agree
Agree

You learn to be
numb

You crave it
like a sweetness
you've never had

Feeling
Healing

They both mean burning

Burning
like you've never known

A Piece Of My Truth

Yes
Yes, I know
that it's been there
Here
This whole time
I've refused
the very idea
of it all
It's been here
Setting fire
to my veins
Poisoning
my air
and causing
all the rapid beating
of my heart
You want
admittance
for the sake
of breathing
I've been
letting myself
suffocate
while rubbing
daisies
between my
finger tips
Waiting for a peace
I never allow
to come

Admittedly Broken

Running
Harder
Faster
Trying
to catch up
to the light
I keep feeling
the fierce fight
stirring
It can no longer
be contained
I've been broken
So broken
Trying to mend
myself
with tools
that held
no reasoning
Avoiding
reflections
with closed eyes
and a turned cheek

Reflection

I can see you
take him on
You've been doing it
for so long
You forgot to feel
the soft wind
against your ear
The way you have felt
with no one near
Now you try
to calm your soul
Letting go
of what you can't control
And you feel like
you're spinning
Spinning
You've been spinning
for so long
You take a look
at your reflection
You see a woman
that's too hard to question
But question you must
You are losing the face
you're needing to trust
And you wonder why
she can't let go
Of all the things
she already knows
I see you reach
for her face
Knowing she's the one
you must embrace
