Snow storm
frost on the pane,
began fading away,
as the crackling flame,
began to play,
the snow covered roads,
held no home,
to those who had nowhere to go,
the fog began creeping in,
much to my dismay,
those long winter months,
held no flame,
no ounce of disdain,
there was no pain,
for those in the way,
for they looked on,
for another day,
the only delay,
was in the winds howling blame,
as for it grew,
the storm grew too.

I am still waiting for you,
Cause I know that
I can be more than just a memory.
I'm still looking at you,
Cause I know that
I can see more than just your energy.
So take my rose,
Just like you took my soul,
Cause I know that
We can be more than just friends.
So accept my rose,
Cause you already took my soul away.
Maybe I will not stay,
But I’ll still be waiting for you,
I’ll still be looking at you.
-Janela da Rua

SUNLIGHT
There are bubbles in her hands
They flow around her sensibility
There are no apologies
Those will come later
There are grapes between her toes
She squashes them regularly
Wearing tannin earrings
And blowing kisses to the wind
There are no gravel rashes
Despite the steep decline
Only appearances
To hold up against the sunlight

content warning: can get a little dark
dark encounters
all through the night,
constant anxiety plagues my life,
constant thoughts run through my head,
a moment of desperation,
a moment of depression,
is this all inside my head?
is what i’m feeling really there?
or am i just a fraud?
wanting more than what i have,
the thoughts won’t quiet,
sleep won’t come,
i just want this to end,
to feel better,
to move on,
to take the day on,
to stop having these thoughts,
these dark thoughts,
never of harm,
but of my failures,
of things i no longer desire,
of what i’m supposed to be,
of what i am,
of what’s to come,
and what’s already come,
i am not my constant doubts,
and i am not my constant thoughts,
for i am me,
and to me that’s enough,
because what is life?
without a little bit of dark.

SANDSTORMS
He creates sandstorms
Whips then up on Saturday nights
Dust flying from his fists
Drenching whiskey lips
His fights are internal
A second of opportunity
Eternal, briskly ignited
By the randomness of strangers
That faceless apparition
Looming in the dark spaces
And surfacing in the split of a lip
The dislodgement of teeth
That feels alive
It's a handhold into something
That isn't numb
Even though it's broken.
