What if you found yourself,
But it was too late?
What if you regretted it,
And you were the one to hate?
You broke down crying,
Because you had no one
You think it won't be long now,
Before the pain is done
But they trusted you,
And you turned on them
Maybe you should save yourself,
Before the haunted end
You used to be so close,
But it was all a lie
That was the flame,
You chose to live by
You never realized,
That it's all been your choice
You did this to yourself,
But you never raised your voice
To give control
It seems like
Your soul is owned
You've chosen this life
To not believe in us
To betray us
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
