Sometime In The Mourning

Sometime In The Mourning

And I am looking for healing within the hands of a woman who claims she still sees all the colours I have felt fading from somewhere deep inside of me. And I am searching for clarity within the hands of a woman who claims she still sees all the light I have felt dimming from [...]

A Good Thing

There will be times when it feels like standing up for what is right means losing all you have left. In those moments, when your back is exposed and the blush of your lips is flush with the bricks, a cold shiver creeping down your ramrod spine is nothing more than the last gasp of [...]

Be Good To Yourselves & Your Neighbours

Be Good To Yourselves & Your Neighbours

I’m not gonna lie, 2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year with highs so fucking high, and lows so obliterating low, that they rivalled my most epic bipolar episodes, and I would be remiss not to mention that over the last 300 or so days, I have thought about checking out early a few [...]

Lessons I’ve Learned Over The Last Decade

Lessons I’ve Learned Over The Last Decade

The Long Road Home

It’s been awhile since I’ve walked this dusty road, but I remember it well. That spot there, where the sun never quite reaches, is where I found myself on my knees praying to a god I didn’t believe in. Bodies upon bottles upon razor blades gleaming with self-harm and a cocaine glow fill the ditches [...]

Holt Street

I wound a broken guitar string around my left thumb and index finger until I could no longer feel either of them because I was high and I liked the shades of red and white that pulsed down my hand until he unwound the string and placed my palm in his own, and then I [...]

Looking at me

You keep fucking looking at me as if I haven't just swallowed your lust, as if the puddles of your pride hadn't slipped from my lips and dribbled down my chin. You keep fucking looking at me as if the taste of you didn't just try to burn a hole through my sternum and pool [...]

On Consent – In a Seventh Grade Classroom

Hey, you! The mom of that twelve-year-old boy who leers like some fifty-year-old drunken uncle. Start teaching him that no means no. Right Fucking Now. You should have been teaching him this already. Teach him that consent is as real as the shoes on his feet and the laces he ties in double-knots. Teach him [...]
