What is it that you have

coursing in your veins

some magnet or a fire

that flushes your face

what that does to my body

i can’t begin to explain

what you do to my body

i can’t ever anticipate

one look and my heart melts

scarlet drips inside the edges of my ribs

my lungs betray me and my breath sinks

my eyes always fall to the curve of your lips

i would give anything to feel you just once

one look from you and i get weak

my mind only yearns the taste of you

to feel the warmth of your chest

and the warmth of your breath

on my neck

you’re an obsession i’d like to never cure

your smile plays in my mind like a flower in bloom

do you even realize the effect you have on me

Twenty

img_0859-1

The day i turned twenty

The muscles in my heart pump slower than they did at nineteen

And another thousand irreplaceable neurons died on me

And another thousand pints of blood and sweat I’d breathed life into

All naivety of teen years shed off like old skin, I rose

Writhed out of my past and rose out of it in all futility

The day I turned twenty

A world full of good and evil lay infront of me

My chances of getting heard were greater than they were at Nineteen

Yet I stay trapped in a decaying form of flesh and bone

In wait for an escape to rescue me

To save me from the claws of my own being

Today I feel the noose tighten around my throat

Because today I’m seting myself free

One hundred cells at a time, one hundred memories gone

Now the muscles in my heart don’t pump and all cells have given up on me

Waste of space reclaimed by my dead body

No good it ever did to me, turning twenty.
