Poetic injustice


In sharp swords we wrote love songs

In hopes we meet our pen pals.

sergio larrain - Black and White Photography books of the year - Telegraph:

Picture gotten from-PinInterest

Modern adults,

Wailing and jumping in tiny wood homes

The kind of music that rips the heart apart.


Every mermaids’ kind of light

whether true or not, it’s right.



historians that kept epistles, lost tales with unending humour?

Time was an exchange, in pleasing rates.

I’d like to be a salmon for a day

I’d like to swim someday

Send voice notes to prominent men

In preparation for the great deal of rain


Pen scouts,

Hovering around parks to find girls that lie and write

we did become some and not all,

we lost the moon while counting their feet.


Write me these kind of poems,

remind me how stubborn I can be.

Paint every word of yours with the memories that weren’t meant to be,

so I can make one more wish.

My ink just ran out.

Incomplete makes me, what does you?

    Brilliant! This would also be good as a spoken word piece. I sense an emotional depth, beyond the intellect, in your writing.
