badlove

Poetry for the Venus Signs

Aries:
the secret
moths never teach
us is that
there is ecstasy
in being burned 
alive

Taurus:
diamonds for
your love, do not
mistake your stomach
for your heart
(one is still empty)

Gemini:
light travels faster
than sound, is
that why you
only loved in
the dark (liar)?

Cancer:
your tears will wash
away a home
built on broken
promises;
how long before you
crumble?

Leo:
the sun has always
illuminated the
moon, but leftover
love is no longer
enough

Virgo:
you fear they 
will never be enough
for you;
you fear more
one day
you will tell
them

Libra:
love is not
a ballroom dance
of exchanged lovers-
one day there
will be no arms
to welcome you

Scorpio:
you sit on a throne
of the bones of 
lovers you have
culled,
death itself
fears your cruelty

Sagittarius:
restless feet
make for bad
lovers –
a restless heart
makes for
a monster

Capricorn:
the mansion you
built gathers
dust, you
did everything
for the family you
never came
home to

Aquarius:
you have been
stuck in your
head so long,
you haven’t even 
notice your
heart has 
stopped

Pisces:
a person is built
out of flesh and bones,
and mistakes;
learn that now
or you will die
searching for
the dream
