Sleeping Beauty (redefined)

Sleeping Beauty (redefined)

Awaken from a wondrous sleep 

with a mop atop of your head

and dry saliva trailing from mouth

to chin. 
Your sweet prince walks in and places

a kiss on top of your forehead

as well as the unborn child. 
You lay back down for another five 

minutes while your prince cooks 

breakfast. 

Stitch Me Up

Stitch Me Up

Replace my old tattered heart with a new one

Take out my dead, cried-out eyes and give me fresh, vibrant ones 

Remove my battered and disfigured arms and legs

Fix me up to look pretty for my next master to play with and discard

Space Between 

Space Between 

As your callous hands runs up my thigh

exposing my bare flesh, I am jolted alive. 
As your steamy breathe caresses my neck

leaving goosebumps in its wake, I am 

breathless. 
As the space between us lessens 

So does my patience to taste you. 

Five Minutes

Five Minutes

to let loose your breaths of reasons for him to stay,

to reach out and grab him by the gray Polo shirt

you bought him for your seven-year anniversary,

to look in his galactic blue eyes before they are stained

with red and closed forever,

to whisper one last time I love you

before he’s lost to you.

 

Can I Be Honest?

Can I Be Honest?

I’ve been there once.

It was dark. No road. No one in sight.

Nothing.

The only thing that brought light

to the darkness was the smell

of chocolate and your rich earthy scent.

I kept my eyes closed to the darkness

but the smoothness of your warm hand

opened my eyes to a blinding light.

I never wanted to be saved

I never thought I could

If I’m going to be honest,

a small part of me hoped

you would
