The lovemaking

The hem of my body is paper and my tongue- the silk threads of ice cubes The night spreads its monotonous tone under my moan the voices that erupts my chest often, about your skin: about your name: the existence of the Sun inside your wounds, the mouth opens and a soft touch sits inside… Continue reading The lovemaking

The itch

the itch,the orange glass ceilings always fail my existence,an inhuman thing sinks beneath my eyelidswalking abruptly, in patterns unknown,there are things which makes no sensea loose river like madnessa loose butter like sky slipping from my white hands,my hands which are now counting the marks of my footprintsmaking a spiral knot about this moments,this momentary… Continue reading The itch

If I could- a poem from my book ‘Crimson Skins’

If I couldI would elope with my insanitywith a lavender bud blooming insidemy cheek.I write mad thingsdrawing the turbid face of a blue ladyas if she has no blood vessels.Breathless.Slow.Melting.Twirling in my skirt skirts,twirling along the locus.My breaths inflate this entire galaxy.like an elastic stuck to the tongue,this tongue that is motionless too.If I could,… Continue reading If I could- a poem from my book ‘Crimson Skins’

A Memoir about Prayers and Healing

Things do not attach themselves to our void, till we allow it to occur. Things- broken, upsetting they instill our hearts and soul with remorse and pain. A haunting truth about liberation is when we clench our minds limited only to the point we think we need it, it never occurs. What about the next… Continue reading A Memoir about Prayers and Healing

The Night

Yellow- a poem

Yellow – scratched and heavyan unknown desire to melt between the stasis of the sky.Yellow,a color that dissolves inside my thin muscles,my tongue wired up with your name,a loose sheet of kiss and melancholy,Yellow: a quiet tapestry that hangs loosebearing limbs out of balancebearing mouths dripping foolish sins.An external pain of the body,a pain crisp… Continue reading Yellow- a poem
