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

making, love like

Our future In the making Love like silent intensity Eyes and smiles and no words spoken Communication I adore, slowly at first and then all at once Passion building, skyscraper high like drugs I am addicted to you I jump and you fall into me, falling together You take only what I can give and… Continue reading making, love like

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

my fictional you – a response to myself

I once said that I felt you close That while you were hidden You were perfect Like the blank space nothings Between music notes I once said you were like a phantom limb Mine to never have While wolf's fur clouds blocked out the sun And science was the only thing that made sense I… Continue reading my fictional you – a response to myself

mow bee us

I watch him while he sleeps. His smile is the first thing I want to see when my eyes open. I watch him undress slowly. Pulling him in close, making him smile. The last thing I see before I kiss him. His hair, disheveled, I long to brush it aside only to watch it fall… Continue reading mow bee us

A ship's hull lullaby sings in her sleep… Continue reading a river’s daughter

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

chest ribs broken

Decimated heart Torn out Cut from my chest Ribs broken Your rusty knife wounding You hand it to me, my dying heart Silver plater cold tarnished As if you are serving me Something which was never mine Removed and bleeding Hollow place where it once was It still beats like moth wings But it is… Continue reading chest ribs broken

and love, anyway

I meditate in poetry Not inside it But the words that help to send me off The thoughts that help to ground me Are said in a voice that is fluent in metaphor Bilingual second language Imagery rich in vision and colour When I close my eyes I see myself Not as I look but… Continue reading and love, anyway

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
