Silent Blood

Comb your hair, clean my house, bathe those kids

We are objects, We are inferior

Our heads bow down as our backs bend over

Palms face thigh, skin shedding

Thoughts crawling, Lips sealed

Hair long to the elbows, to the hands that ache from serving the full

Polished nails

Pierced ears listen to weak, prideful demands

Hearts racing, tongue stuck to the base […]

Bad Religion

We met through mutual friends and
With no knowledge of the concept of time, we consumed each other.
Fed and misused each other,

What Am I Good For?

What am I good for?

I sit here begging for your attention,

or call to make sure I’m good.
