The part of the story
when everything is soft,
and we are still trying
to reach the sun that scorches
the inside of our skin,
and we are still trying
to swallow the names
in our mouths
and hold them in our stomachs.

The part of the story
when my wrist is
between his teeth,
and my blood is
dripping from his mouth.
and oh God, oh God,
he hollows me,
and oh God, oh God,
I split his bones wide open,
and we scream love
like a prayer,
like a sentence,
like an apology.

The part of the story
when we become
something feral,
something hungry,
and he devours me whole
and picks my ribs from his teeth.
I wanted to be wanted,
to be touched, to be craved,
and now I’ll never escape him.

The sun inside of him
could set the kingdom ablaze;
he knows this, he does.

And he still asks me to love him,
to face the flame.

Find me in the ashes.

Anonymous said: I love your poems and admire your writing technique. Any tips on writing? It would be greatly appreciated

The best tip I can really give is to not let yourself get discouraged? Like sometimes he words don’t fit, and that’s okay. Write anyway. Write, write,  write. Try to avoid comparisons. Take a notebook everywhere. Share your work, even if it’s only with one person. Never stop writing because your voice deserves to be heard.
