rarity, I find

I watch as the rain comes down heavy Luckily abandoned Lucky for us Roof still sturdy enough Walls still strong enough Security Such a rarity I close my eyes and listen to the sounds The silent ting ting White noise beautiful Scents from the dirt and the leaves Shivers trace my skin It is nice… Continue reading rarity, I find

third born chosen

Incense smolders Smokey serenity drifting I breathe in like wind through trees Exhale. Trepidation spilling Waterfall cascade. Lips of stone earthen They do not tremble Raven perched upon my shoulder Cawing gently into my ear "It's time," he says Mother paints the pentacle star upon my brow green for protection sister paints left palm Eye… Continue reading third born chosen

my freedom, waves

Vapor rings dance out of my mouth as I think of all the things I have done Sleeping in a double bed First time in two years Space has never felt so cozy He, a paper weight on my ink-stained soul It is nice to finally allow the breeze to take me where it pleases… Continue reading my freedom, waves

through this year

"Good bye" the last words spoken. My past me left behind in a haze of cigarette ash, cruel words and bloody feathers strewn. Sworn to myself it would be the last last time. I gave you too many finalities. I gave you too many second chances, second thoughts. You gave me too many "I'll never… Continue reading through this year

fire water burn – the fiction

The moon peeks from behind the clouds Shimmering hazy through shifting smoke thick The acrid stink fills my nose And I realize I had blacked out I look up and look around The winter cold night is heating up Flames, so pretty dancing How long was I gone? Feeling like I just broke out of… Continue reading fire water burn – the fiction

horrors, like spiders

Spirit me away Under the fence And into the woods beyond Our sweet dream world Through the cobweb fog we run My hand in your hand But you do not force me I am not dragged There are dangers ahead But you hold me close Whisper sweetness into my ears Telling me if we die,… Continue reading horrors, like spiders

roar howl battle cry

A storm clouds the horizon Like smoke on the battlefield Have I used that metaphor previously? Sometimes I cannot remember But of course I am not talking about a real storm Or real clouds or a real horizon There is no real smoke except for that which plumes from your mouth Tobacco sickness sour There… Continue reading roar howl battle cry

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

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

across grassy lawns

I walk a path of most resistance Side walk, pavement, footpath, dark and dingy alleyway Trailing, meandering toward my destination But I can't seem to stop stopping along the way I sit and have a coffee in the gutter I wander into someone's yard to lend a hand I set fires and kiss hands and… Continue reading across grassy lawns
