EMPRESSINE

We’re sitting here doing everything our parents told us to do […] and then we look around and realize they were wrong. The impetus for evolution has always and will always come from within.

Heavenly Bodies (Don’t You Never)

Soft & sweet is the same as poison.

Mix it with my morning coffee

to make it my stiffest drink.

Starriest nights converge to prove

we’re still just two of the heavenly bodies.

.

You are the impossible that haunts,

drags its (‘perfect’) body, twisting

into nothing substantial.

My whole (heavenly) body’s latest ache.

.

Prayers beg, stricken in sleep’s wake,

that I might turn in someone else’s better bed,

happy, laughing, sighing, saying,

"Don’t you never know me like him."
