Activity


you remember back when
it used to snow here
crystalline monuments
to the cold braced against
dark round-shouldered pines

the earth could bear that burden
the silence of december
the cloak of dazzling white down
hiding a shy smile
in early morning starlight

january used to roll over
blending into all the passive
winter months

now your boots sink into
piles of leaf litter and muck
deep into the soil

yesterday I walked into the forest
the creek swollen with rainmelt
and the ground shivered
and slid out from beneath me
Losing Ground
I heard some people talking about the drastic climate changes we've experienced in the Salt Lake valley. It's worrying.
Loading...
in the shorn grass
under the old plaid blanket
listening to nature’s music
i say

“Crickets always remind
me of my dad. We used to
lay on our driveway
every night and
gaze at the moon.”

i turn to nuzzle
deeper into your skin
sighing itwasalongtimeago
in one mouthful
that is lost to your lips

and in the viscous sky
thick with ash
a blushing moon
peeks through the curtains
exposing a white cheek
making your eyes glisten
with moonlight

much later
i walk you to your car
the curve of my spine
pressing against the door
as you kiss me like
no one is watching
Ah sorry for dropping off the face of the world for a while. I checked my recent activity and it said "unknown" so I guess it's been a while. XD

I'm pre med and majoring in Chinese as well as working and trying to balance a social life so DA kind of went bye-bye.

For those of you who remember me and/or just want to feel free to comment about what you guys have been up to! :heart:

water
in my lungs
swallowing the sea
swimming to you

come home
winter breaks like ice caps
crashing down the mountains
bursting the banks of rivers
like unruly children
giddy with snowmelt

from the valley
crisp gray skies melt into
rose and violet cognac mornings
the thick creamy air
pregnant with rain
leaves petrichor in my mouth

heady with the smell of loam
i run through the meadows
picking daffodils and hyacinth
as the brittle summer heat comes ‘round
baking my skin into strawberries

I'm an active, outdoorsy person with an incredible lazy streak. :P Also I want to be a surgeon.

Oh and, you know, just to get this out of the way: I'm gay. Simple as that. ;P
