Standing Still 💮

Together, let’s stand still
in this present moment
instilled with the purity
that the white begonias enveloping us evoke.
And in this serene standstill,
let us see each other sans our eyes,
feel each other without our hands,
step into one another’s universes
without taking a single step.

I Remember (poem) 💙

By being with you,
I forget fear,
Forget about the black oceans
that chase after my breath and jubilant emotions,
About the black hole that demands my soul,
The inner critic that only spews bitter winter,
Storm clouds that stalk me like blood hounds,
Thorn bushes that beg for me to worship them,
adorn my heart with them.
Tidal waves whose shadows darken my days.

By being with you,
I remember the innermost me,
The sunbeam me,
The celestial succubus me,
The self that is a living heaven despite Hell’s persistent spell.

I remember that I’m not those dying embers;
I’m the blue hue in a growing fire.

I now know that we don’t fall in love, we soar.
The only direction you take me is
higher and higher.
In rediscovering my inner peace
through you,
I forgot my 28-year inner war.

Diodes ★ (poem)

Liquefied magnets,
You and I.
Our crimson cores,
neon scarlet magma.

The distance between us,
a needle’s eye width—
even with oversized ocean betwixt
and ceaseless cerebral racket
that ceases only when eyes meet
and double-lock.

A kiss,
a canny collision.
Sultry fingertips
to arched bare back,
goosebumped neck
slowly strum up,
run to my quivering lipsticked lips.
Palm cups mouth,
muffles melody in form of moans.
I’m your acoustic guitar.

We are electrical currents

*Diodes: a semiconductor device with two terminals, typically allowing the flow of current in one direction only.
