Activity


in the shorn grass
under the old plaid blanket
listening to nature’s music
i say

“crickets always remind
me of dad, and us
laying on our driveway
gazing 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 face
peeks through the curtains
exposing a white cheek
making your eyes glow
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
is that lazy old dog
basking on the porch
in the new sun
not quite hot enough
to ease his
arthritic joints

the mornings are heavy
with the sounds of
traffic and baby birds
frost on the lawn
and a chilled breeze
lurking between the hills

all the windows
the burrows and nests
are flung wide open
March
Something I found and am fixing.

Critiques are welcome. It's a work in progress.

I think it needs more connective tissue and to be less bland.

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
