Ruptured Roots

Miju

Could I be mi Without ju? Without your questions Would I ever have answers? Without your gaze or longing look Would I just be a blank empty book? What would I be without you here? Would I fade into the deep regret... Continue Reading →

Remember

Scars

I carry the scars of the dead Of the silence, without voice I carry the last remains of my line I carry all their stories So no one else need bare them

The spirit bringer

I know you. You long to carry the remains of my dead. You lack the parts I carry in my heart and head. It is my excess which you lack. As you haul your empty burdensome sack. You are incomplete, a... Continue Reading →

Golden Thread

Punishment

Being punished for who you are Is the cruelest thing to do by far And though worse yet Is to hurt yourself Because you know of nothing else

Heels

From the soles of your feet they reach Pressing your soft spots as they preach Going into places where they do not belong Finding all the spaces where you sing your own song To make you bend over and groan Gutting your... Continue Reading →

Voice

They took away my voice Along with my choice Fed me rot From the fat friar's pot They tried to fill my head With stories of men long dead With privilege and title Sword and rifle Heaving with books And scowling looks... Continue Reading →

Tick tock

There is a clock inside my head When I close my eyes and lay in bed Like a fob watch it goes tick tock As steady as a charged quartz rock Crystal clear is the beat As I feel the... Continue Reading →

Respect
