The angles, the curves
The points in which my anatomy intertwines
Braided into the outline of a crooked bay
As if it was improvised
I am a kaleidoscope
compiled with infinite colors.
A cosmic spectrum of hues.
A Letter to Heaven
I glared at God, squinted at the sun, and kicked the earth beneath my feet. I wished the angels would come shooting down like stars. I wished Eden would fall into pieces; only then he’d know what it feels like to live among ruins…

Toss me into the air so that my body can grab my soul
We stole the heat of the sun and blamed God for the cold in our bones

If You Don’t Come from a Healthy Family, Make Sure a Healthy Family Comes from You
Just like a small piece of wood can
clog a hole,
the youngest child becomes a dam,
stopping the flood,
rescuing the boat.
A Letter to My Pre-destined Soulmate
But I do know about our mutual dream
of holding hands
to face a cruel world that won’t feel too cruel
