Favorite Quote:
"Step into the fire of self-discovery. The fire will not burn you, it will only burn what you are not."
- Mooji


When Papa told me to fix this
(broken window)
before the glass cuts me, I replied,
“there are loves that kill.”

He watches me watch the cracks
and knows that I am

thinking of you

again, I dirty my hands in your garden soil against his wishes.

O fruit! another injection from your tree,
and I stumble beneath thee (and thy) kisses.

Blood seeps, unknown, a stranger on my skin.
You know what they say about women
who don’t belong anywhere they’ve
been.
