Perigee

September 24, 2016

I want to break the Sun
I want to fix the sky
I want you to see what I see.
I really love no one.
I used to dream of you
I want you to see what I see.
I want to love no one
I don’t dream of you
I don’t want to see.
I want to crash […]

Dead Man’s Curve (Sunset)

September 24, 2016

Been one year, as of yesterday
How I wish you were here, I say,
I don’t hear myself with cars passing
Maybe you did not hear it either.
I admit I had forgotten about it
Because finally being with her again
Matters more than not being with you.
Guess whom she shares her birthday with?
Whatever.
This is my […]

December Eyes

September 12, 2016

Somewhere below the ground of now,
In the catacombs of what no longer is
Slowly rot pieces of a rough trade made.
But fragments of strangers’ strange love
Remain like fireflies encased in amber.
Mine are the eyes of a distant December.
Deeper than I had expected them to be,
Hiding in the darkest of the dark […]

Sitting There in September

September 11, 2016

I was just sitting there, malcontent
Never saying what I was dreaming of
In a way, the only thing I wanted
Was to prove myself I was not wanted.
So, I got it.
I was just sitting there, by barbed wire
Never sharing the wildest of my dreams
As years go by, I realise that I never […]

Notastray (Sunrise)

September 10, 2016

The lights go out and everybody is sleeping,
In the silly hours of the night, it’s just you and me.
So long apart, we quickly grew back together,
Just as long as it once took you to be gone, forever.
The street lights, all one-eyed, burn all night long,
But I can still see the […]

My Winter Solstice

August 23, 2016

It’s the longest day of the year in me, my winter solstice,
Won’t make through it in this lifetime.
Or, maybe, the whole year is threesixtysix of these.
Wrong is
My winter solstice.
Long is
The forbidden in-between.
It’s the longest no of all of my nos, my missing sunrise,
Won’t make through it in this rhyme.
Or maybe […]
