How do you heal a broken melody? The easy answer is with a new song, but what if the song is one you can’t end? Looped over itself like oroboros, forever repeating the dissonance of the past. Reverberations of echoed failure sitting like leaden weight in every played chord: past, present, and future -Perhaps, there…
The King’s Gambit
I am sorry. — There are some sunsets too long to hold in memories, so I’ve taken to holding them in song sprints. Little hums of warmth and brightness cascading between my fingertips as I hold them in my hands. -a desperate watercatch — Quickly now, before they drain out into the glassen minefields of…
You look down and Push your hair away- Like my words. You don’t need my voice anymore. Bite marks line my neck from All your uttered icicle threats. Glittering golden skin And valyrian doom.
Mixed in with dirt and spit, I made mortar from the mix. Build these castle walls a little higher and keep myself from falling out. — Spitting divinity upon Mans tongue, losing yourself on the thought, not savouring the taste of power. This is the price we pay, toiling in gardens we don’t own. It…

To our youth, and what ruins lay behind They follow me forever, their cries resounding- radio waves of confusion and anger I am below and above it all. Foot steps pounding through wooded shadows with slime coating my feet — What air I breathe is not actually my own, just borrowed diluted through your lungs-…
This is happening again, and again. Your phases of development follow no linear path. Kanban boards filled with notes of every colour. I cannot breathe in gaslight fumes and spiteful desires without coughing up my own corrupted fears
A wannabe bishop’s plea for uttered grace and spoken-for-time. Why’d you go and break it again? Grind kosher salt into my cuts, so at least I don’t offend those above when you burn me through. Real friends or fiends on my shoulders and mind The view from so high has given me clarity. I left…
