i wrote this abt my current falling out with religion (brought up in religious schools and felt hated for being bi & my two bffs are christian) it's called Birds of a Feather pt. 1

 

Spoiler

 

"i have a confession, it’s a religious secession

 

i’ve run rampant with the demons in my head

and i’ve softened up even my hardest of hearts

i turned a blind eye towards the loves of my life

a catholic confession without any substance

 

two years later and i attempted to stare god in the eyes

to my displeasure, he did not look back

guilt of my own identity arose from my peers in short, sharp lies

unknown to themselves of their hypocrisy

 

a generational leap mistranslated their own message

they knew nothing about me and my heart

continuous passages with a minimal trace of vestige

reinvest my body in the art, i wish i had since the start

walking out of the cathedral with my baggage

left on the altar.

never looking back at the wreckage

 

i went to the mountain

but the purity of the snow was flushed out with the color of envy

and i faced the open sky while counting my sisters

i sat in a frenzy because none of my friends from my elementary school

stood with me a decade later, the air is bitter

 

dial-up internet connection from everest

slowly connecting eight thousand feet below

in search for companions with a similar interest

soft-hearted, poisoned souls with a retaining glow

a punishing discipline

a devastating disarray

a failed suicide attempt, overdosing on acetaminophen

or numerous flips after flying off the highway

 

i’ve made it to august

we’re dining under the sunlight

i’ve made it this far with my blurry eyesight

now my vision is clear

every unborn second is a light year

a bulldozer self-destructing during a collision on the earth’s timeframe

rosé and smiles keep the hours on forever

when i’m with my platonic lovers

we’re birds of a feather"

One I wrote many years ago named "If Only". Hope you like it!

Spoiler

 

If ever

 

This sadness of mine unbraces

 

The ties between

 

Me and you,

 

I’ll hang myself

 

To your happiness;

 

Coming so naturally

 

That your skin so warm,

 

Swarming with the incense of life

 

Long asleep in my cells.

I looove this thread idea!!

 

this is just a first draft totally unedited that i wrote back in November!

 

Spoiler

 

bambi and shotgun / a grateful victim

 

i stopped running from the ripper a while ago

my feet got tired and the gold began to slip from my ankle

it’s easier to strut in heels anyway

and the sway of the hips can make hate look like love

instead i make it into a fun little game

like cat and mouse

or the ladyhill fun run

butterfly and blue jay

bambi and shotgun

i am completely obsessed with my pounding heart

it’s my first feeling in the morning and my favourite one at night

the only song i ever listen to because it listens back

and here comes you

and him

and him

and him

your dark shadow exposed by my inviting light

smashing glass cola bottles into my skull while i enjoy my sugar high

dripping in red like marilyn’s lips

world on fire lace on my thigh

womanhood unrelenting

a delicious and deadly debacle

crying in the mirror as my cheeks get sweet and rosy

grateful at the very least that my tears sparkle

Here is my favourite piece I've ever wrote, on my mother's miscarriage after my birth. It's called Lost Sibling.

Marshmallows wastelands
Where unborn children never die
White teddy bear with a purple backpack
Reading bedtime stories to a stuffed cat
Mother Spider will come to eat me in my dreams
And all the spawns and the stillborns
That should have become heroes or bastards
Will join hands in a circle
Around the Protecthealer
And blow bubbles with the blood
Of all the killer kin
And we'll make music in the sky
With the bones of parents

Those who died without a grave
Injecting medicine in the veins
Tell my Father that I love him
That He's hidden inside of me
That I'll bring him plastic flowers
And a piece of my womb
On the perfect day I'll come to Heaven

Moss will grow on idols' skin
Fire and wood to wash away the Earth
And perhaps my ship will sink
And maybe I'm not ready to die
But I know for sure that you dwell in my soul
And that I'll drink tea with you
At the Resurrection of the Flesh



If you're interested in my poetry, I have two poems zines on my Behance, here's Psalmz, the first one, and Mucus, the second one. I really miss writing...
