Sip goes the contents of the cup
Into my bloodstream & into
the cup sipped from the contents
slipping into the sip of my cup.
Slipping goes the sip of the mind
sipped from the slipping of the cup
drinking from a slip of the mind
cupped into the sip of my cup.
streaming goes the sip of the cup
contents slipping into the mind
slipped into the drinking of the sip
Sipped from the streaming of my cup.

I fantasize through words,
who and in which are just for us.
I wrote you a letter of meticulously
Masterfully written–from my distressed hands-
Sound, turned noise, turned
Spaces in between alphabet, begat from
Noise begat from whispers that we tell ourselves.
What’s in a name that gives physical structures an Identity?
Original from the rest, begat from the rest.
I fantasize about words
Turned into action, turned into distressed captured moments
of life we believe are truths.

Tell me something. Anything you’d like I enticed.
I see you. Do you see me?
I do. Tell me something. Anything you’d like, I begged.
I need you. I want all of you.
Tell me something. Anything you’d like.
I think I need you too.
Incredible. Beautiful. I do. I miss you.
I smile when I think of you.
A lost queen from a lost time. A queen with a beautiful name. You are gold.
You’re my missing piece, I insist.
Tell me something.
Yes Beautiful, as you wish. You have set my heart free. A royal queen who chose me.
Tell me. I feel blessed.
Tell me something. The paranoid feeling is back.
Breath, it’s OK.
Tell me something? I ask through dark shadowy lenses.
I’m excited to kiss you. To talk to you. To kiss you.
I need you.
I need you. I see you.
Tell me something. I’m panicking.
You are Beautiful.

Something happened when you left me alone in your room that day. Pacing the ground as I lay on your floor. Knees to my chest, head down and forward.
Your shrine became mine; I pray. With tears storming in the crevices; I lay. Still, I lay. I pray that you don’t find me here, in here; on your floor begging myself for forgiveness.
Something magical happened that day and before. The night became ours, I became yours. We play.
Rejoicing in the seconds that build the hours. Succumbing to a desire I don’t deserve.
Nevertheless, I’m yours.
Until time freezes. Until space decreases. Until the sun turns blue. Until the stars touch the moon.
Til dirt slowly evaporates. Til air quickly suffocates. Til love burns like hate.
Something happened that day when I left. Empty feelings of possession filled my essence. Universal suffrage brought partial happiness.
Longing. I long for something I’m not sure existed. Longing, I hold tightly onto non-existence. I suffer in happiness. I die in bliss. You die in vain. We die in pain.
You left me alone.
In your room. On your floor; in your space. Time turned absolute. My tears turned into streaming thoughts of truth. Here, you left me alone. And yet, here I am,
