Here's to you, and all you give to this world. Happy Birthday. I know it's all the better without me.


Hold your peace, child. Many other noises will fill the night's silence.

Driving To The Stars

I stretch
up to reach you
reaching for the skies
And I leave a gap
where my heart lingered
in the knot in my stomach
And the tangles we made
of bone and tissue

Above I see
99 pieces of glimmer
Spell out your name
Mine in the middle
The taste of your spittle
Still fresh in my throat
The feel of your nails
still bright on my shoulders
from where you ripped the wings
that I gave your name to

Keep driving to the stars
I'll keep watch as I fall.

Slowly, I'm drawing out everything and everyone that I chose to define me. I can't remember what I was before them, and despite my fright, my sense of curiosity is overwhelming me into rebirth.

I understand. I know I've traced lines in the sand, that I've pushed everyone back. I did it without wanting to. I did it out of compulsion. When my shadow fades from your doorstep, the air will breathe easier, knowing that it can flow freely without my bitter traps. Do not despair, please. It does not become you. Maybe, in another life where we are more fortunate, we can all become the night sky together, and scare the birds with our laughter and the warmth of our hearts. Till then, we must choose our own roads, and walk them home in the cold.


Remember this. I loved you then. I love you still.

I do not accept your gratitude, because what I do is a thankless pursuit. So please, stop.

This rocket seats two
and I saved a space for you.

"We have to understand. Only one of us will be happy."
"Then I'd rather it be you."


The geese cackled as they sat in silence, the thrum of beating wings drowned out by the beating of their heavy hearts.
