1. he once told me he had an
absence of faith
as I laid curled up in our bed
the Bible open across my lap

he told me that as he plucked
the pages away from my fingers
and slowly began to lay me back
his scars felt rough as I touched them gently

2. he told me he often times found god
in our sex and that he wanted to beat me
black and blue to find out if he'd still speak to him
and some nights I'd find myself wondering
with his bones wrapped tightly around my throat

3. i promised him he could unbutton my jeans
in the back of my minivan one night
after he promised to wed me to the moon and stars
he whispered that virgins always were afraid
regret guilt lined pieces of work he loved
to shatter
as he lunged forward and plunged his hips to mine

4. i walked around for a week with both
a pain between my legs and a pain starting deep
in my little heart
i always knew he wanted to break my faith
just to break me

5. it was a cold February morning
head buried deep within my arms that
i got the courage to wave goodbye
even if it was a little too late.

her exhale is bittersweet
        a tease a taste of something more
        we round the corner 
        hands tucked within each other
                she gazes off into the purplish orange sky
                eyelashes so long and beautiful
        my eyes trace the shape of her lips
        high cheekbones roughened from the chilly air
        hints of pinks and reds flush her flesh 
                her lips are cracked and 
                her tongue slides over them without a single thought
    she draws me near one moment
then shoves my arms away
whispering love is a facade
        if only she could understand 
        this beautiful she exhales 
but i shall not push
i shall not dare say it

            her fingers graze mine
        our eyes catch for a moment
    she is beautiful with lips parted now
        i know she speaks of love and desires
        trains whistling along lonely tracks
            clouds chase their tails 
            and raindrops wet our souls

she swears she has no more uses
as we wander the desolate path
        that her mind's made up and there's no changing
            anything once she's thought it through
        i don't dare try to talk her away from these things

            i turn my eyes to the darkening skies 
        i understood this moment would come 
        although i had prayed she'd never think to go
        but i knew 
                this wasn't the life she wanted 

'we're always slaves to the things we love'
            i tell her with a smile
            even though i feel the splintering crack rocket down my heart
            and tearing through my soul slowly
        it leaks blood and anger and regrets 

but i'll let her go
Inspired by my piece, "To What We Love"
you wrote september on my thighs
        carved mountains and marshes 
            into my porcelain skin
    you bathed me in starlight
        and gave me a halo of thorns

you draped grass across my body
        tucked sticks into my chest
            where my ribs should be
        rocks formed my eyes
    and leaves framed my lips

            you gave my soul to the trees
        claimed i'd have no need for it now
    beneath their leafy branches
        you tucked me away
                out of sight out of mind
                and you 

        in the rains
    i began to wash away
        my body washing up against tree roots
            in your absence i started 
                    to count the stars
            but just like the stars
                    by morning
                        i too was gone
the first time i felt fear
        when the moment i held you
        in my trembling arms

                i felt the world shift in every direction
                my throat closed and fear
        clung to the back of my tongue
        and refused to let me speak

                    nestled in my arms
                        i held you
                    weak and defenseless in this world
                    you cried out 
                from hunger, tiredness, or maybe from fear

        in those first moments
        the world spun
            and i felt i might fail you
            i wouldn't be enough for you
            i felt like i would fail you the moment
        you stared up at me with your beautiful blue eyes

                   i worried about the moments
                where i'd lose sleep staring at you while you slept
                and i feared the nights where nothing soothed you
                i felt panic and failure gripping my heart
                        as i silently begged for a way to help you
                when you were hurting so badly
                that all you could do was cry

        but in the silence that followed
        i hope as you grow older
            you will not think of your mother as a failure
            that she did everything she could
        to make you smile 
        to make you happy

                and that her mistakes will teach lessons
                that even if you fail and fall
            you'll stand up once again 
            and move forward

"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
-Robert Frost
