Wann

I see the bare sky

the sun makes me suspicious

if only with my eyes

when?

I talk a lengthy stroll

upon the naked asphalt

trying to make up something to ponder

when?

I was more adamant about what was

to be when it was gone

but it is here and I'm at a loss

when?

Did I suspect it to be as simple

as a path newly paved

honey bricked to my cause

when? 

I suppose I could keep looking

for what with suspicious eyes 

I have no damn clue

when? 

I stop at a cross

stuck between the earth above 

and below and I know the answer

now.

Bitter

I cannot contemplate your intricacies. 

A thousand limitless interpretations

Of days gone by on better wings. 

To notice them would be a sacrilege. 

Some bitter game from bitter gods. 

You are as timeless as the masters

But only a pale more humble.

(Or at the Cliffs of My Resistance)

Sing me a song

at the rocky coast

of my philosophy

that all of this

is beautiful

without being simple

or easy.

Don't Quit

The road is littered

With those who quit the hard road

Don't be one of them.

Layers

I couldn't quite jump that far, as you did, fearless and free within the bounds of sky. I wasn't brave enough, you see. No. I stood at the edge of forest, where trees swayed and birds called and watched you eclipse in front of me. I stood at the edge of the forest and waited for the world to stop so that maybe I could try to jump to you without the world watching me fail and try again. But life doesn't give you that chance. You are expected to be an example for those who watch, without the freedom of solitude. I tried to convince myself that it wasn't so bad. I did make the jump in the end, after countless hours of thinking and hesitating and realized I did it for nothing. You had already reached the bottom and I was destined to do the same.

~obscurity

just beyond summer, it's

soundless

   like old love & lightning

how many months to remember?

how many whispers?

  warm pinks & spread wings

the way she bends the sun's distance

between a tender curl

of leaf-sprout

& a brief flowering

his touch, as quiet as nightfall

soft ground on the cusp

of evening

   an indecent, unblanketing wind

the dimming ache

  her hips

  belonging to the shape

  of moonlight

Trampoline

Life is like a trampoline. The harder you fall, the higher you'll go. Until you fall back again.

Oh, How?

The smoke winds deftly up the stairs. 

Oh, what a lot to bear my darling

The cool air rises and the shade prevails

Can you feel it in your bones?

 

Pale as gossamer shaped to lace. 

How can you bear it all, my darling?

Hopes of life hand-clasped to shapeless death,

We will hope again tomorrow.
