Usually I post once daily (regardless of how many poems I actually write), what I write today I would share tomorrow morning but right now I have a surplus of poems since I haven’t been able to leave the house much thanks to seizures! It is starting to get chaotic.

Defiance, an extension of this struggling heart
I never belonged, to myself a malevolent stranger.
In your face, my eyes reflected back raise up my
Defenses. I never meant to abandon you, there
Is a war playing in the hollows of my bones and
Sometimes defeat dawns slowly, you who
Have laid me down broken in the crucible of
Your contagious devotion and rendered me at
Times whole. It is only myself, not our love,
That I fight, this potential tied up in sheep skins
Against myself a wolf, some times you stand
Too close, some times you exhale when I am
Still striving for breath, some times you love
Too much and all I know how to be is alone
