(Brainf)artistry

there is nowhere left to go
as I see your colorless fortitude
fade to crumpled bones and worn edges —
leaving you bare & stripped of
all those wonders you wore
like everyday clothing

& Instinct
uproots congeniality – while I
remain guessing at
whatever the fuck you said
in that certain moment
when longing turned to resignation.

may those presumptions crumble
and turn doubt to dust,
never to be cradled again.

If I Said

if i said
“it was a very good year”
i would tell a bold lie.
but trials, failures and struggle
may build
a worthy foundation
yet.

with tired eyes
i smile ~
and let your voices
carry me away.
