lost is found.

In the little glass bottle I call home, I live in a house made of mossy wood and hardened sulfur. Its suffocation is very comfortable, like a warm hug on a cold morning. I fear that one day, it will let me go.

I like being held.

In the little…

It’s hard to mince words when others mince hearts for sport.

I am tired of the illusion of compassion, as if sincerity was nothing but a sleight of tongue. It’s saltwater killing butterflies that bloomed like dahlias, leaving behind an appetite for bad decisions. It’s a boxing rig in an…

I admired how they could walk in many shapes like a marching troupe. Their voices differed in wavelength, yet matched in resonance. They were the wrong puzzle pieces that fit together in certain places and looked beautiful that way. They were whole on their own, yet even moreso together.
