Poem of the Week

scratch papers
* i know it's been a looooong time since i've posted a poem... but i've been incredibly busy working on the second book... i think it's amazing and i don't want to spoil any of it. i found some scratch poems laying about and will post some of these to keep you company until i know more about the new book. thanks for your emails supporting and asking, "where is the poem of the week??!!??" xoxo *

i crept away from the bed
slowly so as not to wake you,
but my legs were made from
glass and metal and
the bathroom door demanded attention
as the sun snuck its fingers through the blinds.
you did not move nor blink.

i slipped back into the room
like an eager python
with the whirring toilet behind me,
i stole in beside you,
put my left arm behind your neck
and your right arm was around me
as quick as the breath of a fox.
