So far, I’ve mostly let you piece me together, or make up your own mind. Sometimes creating someone else’s story is so much more fun. So, if you’re satisfied with what you know, I’d stop reading this post now. But if curiosities killed the cat, then here we go... I am not good at owning … Continue reading Talking to you…Nice to finally meet you 8/3/19
Blankly, gazing out at you Void of everything I once knew. A pickle jar, Emptied. Tongue’s grit Rough and sore. ~~~ Don’t spoil Your sour mood, For me. Or anyone. But lick your lips, And twist tight, What you might. Until the seal stops, And your wounds have healed. ~~~ Words retracted, Or withheld. Kept … Continue reading Pickled Crow – July 26, 2019
Flying, soaring No need to come down. Between the droplets of clouds, Arms slicing the crisp, wet air. Carving out a home A place where the pull Of everyone, everything Floats far below me.
Filling up my puddle, Splish, splash. Pity party for one, please.
The hardest thing to do Is smile through All the pain carried Deep inside of you.
Put it down, they say. Enough is enough, they huff. I am mad, because I am sad And I just don’t have any energy today. To be there, like I once was.
I remember that day, So very long ago. Stuck in my head, A blink of an eye, It appears Right in front of me. ~~~ I followed her up the stairs, Like you always told me to do. She was screaming And yelling, I did not understand. Did she know this would be her last … Continue reading Talking to you…I followed her up those stairs 6/28/19
Do I drain you? Enfeebled, Articulating All of these letters. Strung together A welcome banner Wrenched taught Between posts. Only to point you Toward the exit, Far from this place. An escape That feels fresh And light. Go ahead, Drink the lemonade. A rush of sweetness Hits your tongue. Finding the beauty In each gulp. … Continue reading Lemonade – June 17, 2019
Put it away, Pick it up. ~~~ You have no place, You are a pretty face. A holder of spots, A keeper of quiet. Not to be heard. ~~~ Pick it up, Put it away.
Fast and furious A blurr Whizzing by I am The eye Watching from the center Holding it all together Dare I take a step Pulling me into A space Where the unknown plays A song Misunderstood By the anger That sits on the top shelf Watching and waiting to Start the whirlwind That protects The … Continue reading Spinning – June 17, 2019
Nestled in, It was her Hovering in my head. Right there. I could feel her hand on my back, The smell she wore. As my eyes blinked closed I felt her dress lightly Brush my leg, And she was gone. In an instant, Forever.
The sadness that penetrates, Steam rises from your skin. Letting go Of something, Right in front of your face. You reach out to touch it, But it’s no longer The same. As it once was, To you, By choice. Bleeding out for too long The clot has begun to form The sticky Gelatin like substance … Continue reading To Let Go – June 12, 2019
The edge Traversed Is narrow. The wind blows at your back, Pushing you forward. Vacillating, You obey. Disillusioned At the audacity Used In front of your face. You could jump Ending the fear. All things. Instead, you continue To be pushed Along the edge. Not strong enough To wear your thoughts On your sleeve. As … Continue reading Traverse – June 8, 2019
Untamed, tunnel spinning. The fairgrounds of grief. Dark And lonely. The murmurs coming from The end, calling us To the opening Across the way. The path unkind, So close. Arms stretched out Never quite there. Finger tips scratching The surface, Always present Slipping and clawing for traction. Shouting out silently For everyone to hear. The … Continue reading Spinning Tunnel – June 5, 2019
Toe tip Taps the clear Chilled stream. Sending a buzz Of hair standing on end Up through My leg, As it sinks into the pool. The shock spreads, The glass of ice water Clings to my skin, Detaining the Circulation of life. My eyes shoot open, Sprinkled with a splash Of the juice From the … Continue reading River Play – June 4, 2019
I’m a fish flopping out of water. On the street for everyone to see. Catch me Hold me firm. Cut me open And filet me. Always more Fish in the sea.
Mama, please don’t go, I’m not strong enough. The memory of you, Lost in the waves of time And too volatile to prod. ~~~ Life moves fast, I had no choice. Heart breaks a thousand times each day Bellowing for you. ~~~ Your lessons are a record, In my mind, But I’m still weak Not … Continue reading Motherless Daughter – May 24, 2019
The sky slurs awake, As the day begins. My eyes creep open. This weight From years gone by, Alone and heavy. You never visit me while I sleep, But surround me in sorrow In my waking hour. On edge. Inhales shallow. Eyes swollen. Unnumbered hours Have passed me by Without the scent of you. Today … Continue reading Hold My Hand – May 12, 2018
As the child weeps, Sorrow seeps. The willow, its muse. Nothing ahead. Nothing behind. An empty abyss Swirling around. One heartbeat found Frozen. In sorrow, As the child weeps.
Tossing and turning, Waving and bent. The sensation is freeing. Stretching as far as your eye will take you. Flittering as the wind flops Front to back. Whooshing in synchrony, The tippy tops. I lose myself in blowing trees, Endlessly Whirling away. Where ever your subconscious takes you.
