medusa hair snake

Cold blooded Needing the warmth of others to stay alive A fire grrl seemed perfect for your next victim Medusa hair Snake in the grass Monster heart You turned that fire grrl to stone Cracked and crumbling Frozen and cold Mind in two Two minds All she ever wanted was you You wanna talk about… Continue reading medusa hair snake

blank space nothings

I cannot see where it is you hide But I feel that you may be close The space between us now is greater than it ever has been Like the home stretch marathon Distance and time and space are only relevant to what isn't really there Sometimes it is the spaces between music notes that… Continue reading blank space nothings

phantom limb, mine

Today I lay in bed And watched the light outside my window fade Grey white clouds like wolf's fur So cold it felt like snow I hear my pack howling But I cannot get to them My brain or more accurately my meninges Ache and thud and ache My pia mater tells my arachnoid membrane… Continue reading phantom limb, mine

for you, if

Nothing is ever truly silent Blocking out sound I still hear the hum of my own ears The bell tolling vibration of damage done Is this the same as fear Once the source is removed Is the echo of fright still felt Thrumming in my moth wing heart Is this the same as hate Remove… Continue reading for you, if

I woke up with a song in my head

To the edge Till we all get off I will take you away with me Once and for all Time will see us realign Diamonds rain across the sky Shower me into the same realm Calculate Our embrace Hold on (Come with me now) Right away Outer space with me Once and for all Time… Continue reading I woke up with a song in my head

Sway

My heels clack loudly down the isle of the grocery store as I ran through. Earbuds in my ears. My husband's voice telling me about his particularly shitty day at work. I hate to say, but I was only half paying attention. Not because I didn't care, but because I just wanted to buy food,… Continue reading Sway
