I think of you when I can’t sleep.
There are unwritten letters
crawling across my bed and walls
because we don’t belong here.
We should be dancing with thunder,
our skin soaked in sin, fearlessly
Everyone keeps reflecting
on how much their lives have
changed the past year. But when
I’m lying in bed alone, all I can
think of is how much my life has
changed in a split second –
the instant you smiled at […]
I don’t care
that you’re bad for me.
Wrap your hands
around my trigger
and scars dirtydance,
intertwined fates on borrowed
I will give you all of me.
The way a rainstorm pours all of its
life from its mouth, the way it gives
its every hope and dreams to the soil
and says, “please, drink all of them.
I will give you more come m […]
Forgiveness gets easier with time,
but it is never soft.
It is sweeping up the ashes
and starting again.
It is starting on your own
and learning to trust yourself again.
There is nothing wrong with
wanting to be loved in a way
you feel you deserve.
You are not being selfish,
inconsiderate or self-centered.
It is a beautiful sign of your self-worth.

I want to go to unnamed places,
let my heart unravel across
countries and continents,
through dirt roads and busy
avenues, mountain trails and
highways, shady alleys and
industrialized streets, […]
I am painting a white flag into
the empty spaces of my ribcage.
This does not mean I am giving up,
but rather, I am giving in to his
cyanide smiles and mason jar eyes.
He has long since captured me even
before I […]
means there are days
“catch me, I’m falling”
“save me, I’m drowning.”
when he whispers my name
like I am his queen
north of the wall and
south of the sea and
all of the places we
dream of in between.

Burrowed deep underneath
the layers of blankets,
to the right of my pillow,
your hand grasps mi […]
I sometimes forget that you are real.
A l m o s t. And then you kiss me with
a kiss that no false science could ever
synthesize, and we write every proof
of our existence all around the […]
You ask me how I can manage to go
to sleepless for more than 30 hrs.
You see, I would rather spend life awake.
Sleep makes me feel mortal.
There’s something magical about
being awake just before dawn,
When you look in the mirror
and see not good enough, please
remember that I see strong
hands, stronger willpower,
resilient heart, easy laughter,
kind eyes, fast wit and every
inch of the reason I […]
The monsoons are notoriously
common this time of year. They
remind me of you, how you are so
full of lightning and I am flood
in your palms. Our forecast says
storm warning, but with you around,
it should […]
You fall asleep on me at 3am,
oblivious to my fingers trailing
through your hair, aptly pulling
knots from their tender homes.
You have twisted yourself around me,
entangled in fingers, in words,
in limbs, […]
I know loving you will leave scars
the shape of your mouth on my chest.
I know loving you is like an order
saying “do-not-resuscitate.” I know
the future leads to nothing but the end.
An end like every […]
Love me like you never
thought you’d find me.
I’ll love you like I’d never
think of letting you go.

When I was a little girl, my grandmother taught me
to listen to oncoming traffic and to stay away from things
that could cut my heart in half. Growing up, I knew that I was
destined to be with a guy who would […]
