The Recipient

Stop raping me she says, Stop kneeling on me he says, Stop treating us like we are less than we are, they both say… You promised you wouldn’t kill us yet we were taken against our will and forced to build for you, then you say we are not good enough. Those left behind have […]

Rinsed Plight

Cast a net on my emotions oh glorious one Help me catch these feelings that now overwhelm me I am drowning in a river of my own demise Setting aside all that I know to be the truth; your word Only to erect these false monuments of ideals that do not have foundation in the […]
