‘Stoic Lover’ by Brittany Henriques

I wonder what’s on your mind
When our fingers intertwine
When your drunken lips are close to mine
I beg for your train of thought
When you hold me distraught
Without thought
I smell
Only alcohol on your breath and
The sour taste of your fears

 


BRITTANY HENRIQUES is a passionate Journalism student at Concordia University minoring in human rights. A deep thinker, and lover of all art in its strangest forms, Brittany spends her time drinking large amounts of coffee, admiring dogs and working on her poetry book when she isn’t writing articles. Deeply inspired by Humans of New York, her biggest dream is to one day become a visual journalist and travel around the globe to give a voice to those who are silenced.
