trying out new old things

So, I have strayed away from things again. I have been sucked in by the poetry demons (which I love) and I need to let go a little. Not completely. But if I want to get the damn book finished then I need to make some changes. There will be a bit of a return… Continue reading trying out new old things

hotel rooms and twists of fate

In a surprising turn of events, I find myself in a hotel room... I realised that I have not written non fiction for a while so... I should probably do that. So, I have stayed in so many hotel rooms. Way more than I should've. And most of them have not been for holiday fun… Continue reading hotel rooms and twists of fate

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

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

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

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

the me I am

Hi... Maybe you can help me... Do you know where I am? Not where I am right now, but the me I am looking for? The me I am looking for is about my height. She is sort of like me in looks... maybe a little prettier. She is definitely less awkward. Her words do… Continue reading the me I am
