  2. figure.

    my mother says the human body

    is not an art form,

    not if has function

    not if it can be used—

    my skin is stretched thin

    over my frame

    but i’ve left just enough 

    rough edges begging

    to be smoothed,

    i’ve got a canvas of curves

    that would be rude to ignore,

    you can take what you will

    paint me to be what you want

    but be careful what colors

    you choose

    because i promise

    i’ll be the smartest thing

    you ever do.

  4. red lip stains.

    you held me gently

    in your mouth

    tongue curling around

    the corners of my name

    you whispered it softly

    so low i could barely hear

    but my skin felt it

    vibrate along the surface

    of my flesh, electric—

    you’ve compared me to 

    flowers, delicate and velvet,

    but i will devour you

    i will destroy 

    everything in this room

    i’ll make you aware

    of every molecule of you—

    i’ll leave you branded

    singed with the very lips

    you compared

    to red roses.

  5. the dawning of thoughts.

    there were times

    i turned my back to you

    but i didn’t know that truly

    being alone is having no home

    to go back to

    because i’ve been too busy

    trying to dig beneath 

    my blood and bone

    to find the soul 

    i’ve been told is there—

    i felt it once

    vibrating every atom of my being

    so violently i could not deny

    the significance of my own

    existence

    you let me follow my wanderlust

    to edges of my own universe

    until it led me to my own truth

    but

        but

              i realized what i really wanted

              was someone to share

              my soul with.

  6. Follower Series

    So I just finished a poem that was requested and I just wanted to put out there that I do take requests for my follower series. All I ask is that you are a follower and you understand that I’ll complete the poem whenever inspiration strikes me.

  7. dizzle who.

    remember when

    we were in our teens

    and we tried to be bad

    but the rips in our jeans

    were too clean and you

    swore your parents pulled

    you apart at your seams 

    and i never quite remembered

    my dreams but your name

    came quickly to mind every time

    i thought of a place i wanted to be—

    i wonder if we knew who

    we’d grow up to be

    if we’d stop trying to grow up 

    so fast and spend our days

    dancing until we were dizzy

    and playing in the rain

    instead of learning how

    to kiss cigarettes

    without choking.

  8. clean slate for a blank mind.

    you said you hate push up bras

    because they’re liars

    even if they’re supportive

    and i said that sounds like you

    which is bitter

    and if i keep adding my two cents

    i’ll be poor in more ways than one

    but if i ever find a wishing well

    i’ll wish you well for a change

    and if i don’t find one

    i’ll make bricks from my slick quips

    to rebuild the bridges we burned

    because spurning someone

    who hurt you

    feels good for a moment

    then leaves you empty

    for a lifetime, i’ve got long lifelines

    and too vast a heart

    leave it half full because the pull

    of spite was too great.

    It’s not. I’m doing a poetry series inspired by the usernames of my followers.

  10. meplustheworld said: i really want to start putting some of my poetry on tumblr, any tips or inspirations? :)

    Absolutely. 

    1. Just post it. Even if you don’t feel 100% sure or confident in the poem, just post it. If anything it helps to see your own progress.

    2. Follow poets on tumblr that you find inspiring. Reading poetry you enjoy can be a great inspiration.

    3. Write whatever you want. It doesn’t have to be pretty or rhyme or have any kind of structure. The more you just be yourself, the better the work is. Also, the poem can be as long or as short as you want. I’ve seen poems up here that were three words and some that were 10 verses—both were great.

    4. Learn how to take compliments. Too often are people quick to believe negative feedback and not the positive—don’t worry you’re most likely get positive responses every time.

    5. Don’t worry about notes. Sometimes poems that you may consider to be some of your best work, may get no notes at all. That’s okay. It happens. (Sometimes it’s the opposite. A poem that you think isn’t your best work will get more attention.)

    6. Try to post a new poem at least once a week. Continuously writing is a great way to get better/evolve your work. 

    7. Look for inspiration in unique places. If you ever have writers block, you can write about the tree outside your window or a book you read. The challenge of writing about everyday things is a good writing exercise.

    I hope this helps! :)
