Two lone wolves colliding
Take it in stride
You’re by my side
At least for now I see you
At least for now you see me

Uncovered, untrue
A derelict pair
In search of the truth

Two paths colliding
Circumscribing
Writhing and striving

A deep uncouth
Brute force
No remorse

The light came from a distance
I am the witness
bear with me

with you by my side,

I could conquer the world

and I just hope,

for the life of me,

that you never want

to let go of my hand

Missing Piece

Meeting you was like finding something I never knew was lost. There was an emptiness and my heart was always yearning, but for what, I never knew. Then I met you and discovered that it was you who held that missing part of my heart all along.

And now, I don’t know how to live without it.

—Fatima Haider

We had the stars, You and I. And this is given once only.

Who can explain such things? How this world stretches over the horizon, teeming with life, can feel so cold, so lonely when one soul departs from another. In truth, I do wish we could have left together. For now my heart is torn, ripped, and I have no more to give this place, no more to offer. Without you, I’m left with nothing but words upon a page and an emptiness where you once rested. ~ B.T.

broken, crumbling, i’m grasping
at the edges to keep myself from
falling; hollow, haunting, left in
the dust, i’m trying to make sense
of how it was you who left me

there was a word
he held it tight
it guided him
through endless nights
was just a word
would set days free
but as they’d break
well, so would he

there was a word
he held it tight
it strengthened him
imbued with might
he knew not peace
could not he heard
yet owed a debt
to pen and word

was just a word
for all intents
it could offer
no recompense
beyond all that
he had inferred
it was only
ever a word

there was a word
it was his world
a tattered book
with pages curled
so tightly gripped
in his clenched fist
tendons rose
upon his wrist

there was a word
it cut him deep
his wrist lay bare
the price was steep
his fingers gave
hand laid open
the word was gone
still unspoken

was just a word
for all intents
it could offer
no recompense
beyond all that
he had inferred
it was only
ever a word

there was a word
that he revered
which also birthed
his greatest fear
didn’t ask much
but took his core
was just a word
yet so much more

there was a word
he held it tight
upon a time
an endless night
without regard
for consequence
made it his world
that just made sense

was just a word
for all intents
it could offer
no recompense
beyond all that
he had inferred
it was only
ever a word

there was a word
it was his world
a tattered book
with pages curled
lost to the day
broken, disturbed
without his world
without a word

Cupcake’s Enemy

Over two decades I’ve been living in her mind

Afraid of a world outside that hates my kind

Afraid to be true to just be real

I sit alone in the darkness pretending I don’t feel

Another form walks about he takes control

Directs this minion and she does as she’s told

A phony a fake, they dance this masquerade

They put on a smile as they march their cis parade

I try to over power him, try to overcome

But my form is too weak so I just succumb

To the darkness that surrounds me here inside this void

Knowing she’ll never let me out I’ve become so paranoid

I have no shape, I have no face

I have no life I feel displaced

Dysphoric is the only state I know

It’s filled me with agression and so I let it grow

Perhaps anger is the answere, angst is the key

I’ll take him down with rage and claim victory

He’ll be too blinded when he sees his idol is fake

His control will be broken and mine to take

We’ll be free of his tyranny free of his hold

Free of his vision, free from this mold

Or I’ll die trying it’s worth a shot

I’ll take my chance cause it’s all that I got

I cannot help but think of your sweet smile, and the ache that follows in the knowing I shall never see it again, the warm embrace you would always greet me with, I am now left without, the touch no longer felt, your shy smiles and soft voice has now left this world cold and lonely, your gentle heart and kindness felt no more but in dreams, my memories, and this place left far too hollow without you. ~ B.T.

I’ve tried
to become someone else for a while,
only to discover that he, too, was me.
