a collection of poetry

by Raven Stares


I hold a lifetime of moments

At the bottom of this bottle.

Watch me drink

with disdain

feel the whisky hit

the inside of my flesh

and then reach

for the bottle




You are stronger

than you’ll ever know.

A seed must fall to the ground,

Before it can start to grow.



There is

no ocean


than you.


I drown

when I

sea your


come through.
