As a mind bleeds

You would bleed mentally,

axis by axis

to know my aching cheeks and lips.

they do not flutter, engulfed in smokes

my  mouth, volatile and dark

i am a pattern of transition 

disgusted each day, 

separation of tongues divides

these breasts once supple,

i am a sliced  burning moon

only diced further,

till i dismantle my nerves.

I will die a walnut death— with cracks

and dust flooding my brain.



P.S-I did not take care of punctuations, deliberately because i was too lazy to do it. And i do not care!

  1. beautiful syntax and emotion! who cares about the punctuation because I think it works well; sometimes it’s a lot of fun to play with a lack of punctuation! 💜

      1. You are very welcome dear friend.
        I don’t feel negative. A lot of my poetry in the past has come from a very intense churning within. I look at that phase as beautiful too. My heart just feels a lot for you at times. I honor your journey my friend, it is bringing forth such a tremendous gift that you keep sharing with us. As long as it nourishes you, I wish you all the joy possible on the way.
