So in my defense, when he touched me the lights of my body came on. In my defense, the windows were thrown open. In my defense... spring.


We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Maya Angelou




The first time
I heard my name
in your mouth,
the ground felt like
a language I haven’t
spoken in years.
I forgot everything
I knew about gravity.

Rudy Francisco


You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

   If we had met in another lifetime, I would’ve known which steps to take in life. I would’ve known although he was not my father, it felt the same when his fist collided with my face, when his fingers tore off tufts of my hair. I would’ve known this was not love. I would’ve never called it love in the first place.
   We are sitting on your bed, there is distance between us and the silence is suffocating me. I am holding my knees to my chest. My body is shaking; you are quiet. I ask you if you still love me, and you tell me that you are not sure that you ever did.

When love becomes
The one thing you can't trust
The stars start falling down
In silver trails of dust

The atmosphere above
Is a glimmer of what it was

The moon reflects the sun
Like a memory of us

When the sky fell down
It shattered on the ground.

                        I'm a statue, cold and numb; don't waste 
YouR ToucH.

Be Content, but never be Satisfied. Let there be an Aspiration in total Surrender.


CAUTION IS CALLING,
BUT NOBODY'S HOME.
