by Gillian Renée Colón
you burn deserted mind
sputter drowning lies
dawning, i’ve settled,
with no compromise.
we divide, conquer.
crawling out from them,
or raged within.
if i go down, it’s swinging
and howling at echoes –
but i rise like a devil
that you can’t contain
Rationalized Verbalizations of a Somniloquist
something about this feels like only strings;
keeps me lying in wait for so long, forlorn –
for your love truly does keep count the days.
the nights come crashing in vengeful waves,
and sure to anger more before this is done –
knowing i’d never change my ways.
