happy father’s day

Cruelty is not a trait you should have Compassion and kindness is the only way you should kill anyone Inflicting pain with every move you make The innocence of babes destroyed I hope you don't realise what you have done Because if you did That would be so much worse Laughter like hornets wings Your… Continue reading happy father’s day

a river’s daughter

At the water's edge Day dream stares, down into the depths Her nightly vigil searching for shadows Signs of life, of ghosts Never knowing what she was looking for Understanding not why she longed to dive down Lay on the ocean floor and waiting, breathless Waiting for? A ship's hull lullaby sings in her sleep… Continue reading a river’s daughter

deliciously terrible sin

A goddess comes down Goes down in her human form To meet the one who calls Her sweetest devotee, is he Breathing a heavy sigh As if he had been holding his breath The goddess looks upon her worshipper And she saw that he was good A sacrifice had been promised Procuring propitiation Little deaths… Continue reading deliciously terrible sin

Our sweet dream world Where we, the wild things, are Wolves in people clothing Monsters are we The sky above us is black Like our hearts Although moonlight filters through the trees Shining down onto our changing, writhing bodies Witches are we We do not wish to go We eat each other up Devouring every… Continue reading happily drowning, we

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
