Gifts of whispering futures, Curse the living past. Present problems now. Always seeing what’s coming, At least you know when to duck.
Pickled Crow – July 26, 2019
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
Tarrying For You – July 29, 2019
Lingering in my lust, For what I can no longer touch. Breathing fire, To taste the Sweetness. Dessert before dinner Leaves nothing Forward, After it’s expired. To begin again, One foot heads In a direction While the other tarries In the hunger I’ve built up For you.
Peace – August 1, 2019
I am torn, Ripped Right down the middle. Jagged Between my breasts. There’s a left, And a right. But what is left in-between? A peace, in me. Right there, Left behind.
Below Me – July 22, 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.
My Reverie – June 13, 2019
The sky’s exhale takes flight, I’m drawn Beneath its branches. The law of Attraction is simple. The inexplicable Beauty of The trees breathing in the breeze. A gift of life in motion So pure, unaltered to the naked eye. Praised by The attention Of those who see. Just as it’s supposed to be, I want … Continue reading My Reverie – June 13, 2019
Last Wishes – July 15, 2019
Final goodbyes break my heart. Falling into a million shards of glass. Can’t move. Can’t breath. It’s all coming down Raining, and washing away the hurt. That falls from The unknown, And leads you to somewhere. Never of your choosing Lost in a place. A land foreign to your being. A man she once called … Continue reading Last Wishes – July 15, 2019
Trauma – July 2, 2019
Trauma isn't that moment, Trauma is strung out. A flavor that lingers, In the back of your throat Your whole life.
Live It – July 6, 2019
Shaking~rumbling~ Blow, blow, blow! Feel it, grab it Ride on!
Once Was – July 9, 2019
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.
The Wave – June 26, 2019
The slow melodic crest ~ Falling into froth. ~ Pulling Back out to sea, Metronomically set to Slow and steady. ~ Heaves again ~ Reaching higher Crashing, tossing Itself into a bubbly pool. ~ Sliding back to where it came. ~ Taking a layer of granular crystals, ~ Eating away At what once was At … Continue reading The Wave – June 26, 2019
Wherever – June 29, 2019
I quit. I’m done. No more of this, It’s over. I look up, But to the rear. Seeing the distance I’ve traveled, Hitting the gas. Tires howling To the next stop, Wherever that may be.
Lines – June 22, 2019
Smooth Running, On and on and on... ~~~ Horizon stretched tight, My heart pitter patters. A blip, Up and down, Up and down, And again. ~~~ A calming Sense of length. Streaking by On a rider’s Journey. ~~~ Yours and mine, But a dash. Continuing to travel Long after we’ve Ceased. ~~~ The rill of … Continue reading Lines – June 22, 2019
Unscathed – June 20, 2019
To free my grasp, I’ve held on so tight. My jaw is clinched, Always tapping My own shoulder, A reminder to release. For a moment My grip loosens, And my teeth are unscathed.
Lemonade – June 17, 2019
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
Traverse – June 8, 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
Pain – June 9, 2019
You tell me, Turn my pain into strength. It can only be strength. Because if it’s not It’s nothing, It’s death. Pain is always strength, To those who live through it.
River Play – June 4, 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
Dread – May 22, 2019
This room is an empty space. Yet, it is filled with dread.
MS—-ME – 2017
Brain is tight. Leg is dumb. Want to play, Want to run. Have to find a different way. Pushing through, As I hold it in. Deepening the burden, That’s burying me. A secret kept. My life cut short, But I’m still living.
