anamnesis, my nemesis

'you thieve to purge
hurt to feel’

'remembrance is an impossible balancing act
more so
a confusion echoing vertigo’

'with you,
i am perfect destruction
eclipsed by joy’

'swallow past the rationales
reasoning and responsibility
we can save them for
when you forget
the weight of my name’

' i made an elaborate lover out of suffering
but it’s consistency was
the only thing i could be sure of’

'lips are lined
for the blind
to grope
like maps

come find me’

poetry excerpts, a look back at the last decade.

my womb aches and i am glad

it is
an ache
that pulses his name
a heaviness
that transports my soul
back to him
to night, to his mouth
my mouth,
calm control of his hands
the latticework of skin, shadow, and surrender
i offer in return

it is this pain i cling to
unhinged
coloring my eyes wild with glee
flushed mouth
a beckoning promise of lush,
sweetened strawberry

a bright coquette
with brazen gaze

they say, you look beautiful today
and i want to tell them
it is because i carry my lover inside me

it is because i am
full of him
his smell, his taste
my body has become his home
i hold a wound
that radiates with his
devotion
every twinge
a blessing of his grace

would that i held his seed
deep inside me
trailing down my thighs
as i walked
proudly
the taste of salt
of soul and testament
to his existence
my honor

i twist my hips
tighten the muscle of
thigh and ass
seeking a sting, a song
a delicate agony

they look
and i urge them all to see
that this is not my body
but my lover’s home
and unabashed, i sit
reveling

for my womb aches and i am glad

-j.aequitas

i am the sword in the dark.

You kiss me with your mouth wide open like you’re not afraid of swallowing poison. I taste the good and bad in you and want them both. We call this bravery.
