About michael mcguirt

Finding myself in this version of


i deserve more
than i deserve

i pray to the atheist
for more than i deserve

that which i deserve
will never touch my soul

true love
is never deserved

she comes freely, blindly
with open arms

adorned in promises
always naked


blood words

through this jagged
unnatural wound
I find blood words

to paint
the sound
of pain

violent flame

violet flame
embraced in fire
she strikes and devours
darkness and fear
undulating the horizon
drifting unknown seas

your hunger

i miss your hunger,

a desire to eat your fantasy

sustaining yourself

with a mouthful of whims


she is darkness
he is light
ephemeral embrace
of dusk


the night bled spirits
into my open wound
and i became
a creature of darkness


another museless breeze

leaving only the breath of frost

whispering nothing

avoiding every chime
