Zodiac Crossed Lovers

Eyes that shift from

From the inside out
Now kiss me 
And make it an

Warmth of the soul, don’t complain
When you stand in shade.

The Tattooed Skull

The torrent 
Slicing from above
Water turning to ice
The shards 
Shredding my skin
Peeling flesh from bone
Until I finally recognize 
What I know
I’ve been all along 
A hollow thing
Tossed aside
Waiting for a
