~waking up wednesday

 

 

 

 

january is quiet

& stars move in slow motion

as if they’re falling asleep above

a half-moon shadow

carved on my bed

 

 

there’s dust on the nightstand

 

 

thick, like overused adjectives

searching for nouns to describe this

emptiness, the way it lies

in the shape of a spiral notebook

that writes the history of us

 

 

how thirty-two seasons together

equals the distance between two pillows

 

 

I swallow another mouthful of darkness

& drown myself in sounds of this night

my writer’s ghosts will visit soon

 

 

& these thin walls are whispering

the forecast calls for snow

~moonless

it will happen

again

four days from

now
it will happen

in the dark
like january shivers

or sweat soaked

august sheets


it always happens

in the dark

when the moon

disappears


it always happens

in silence
as I rock myself

awake
as I smooth out

memory's quilt over

my lap
count each piece

of patchwork
remember each day

I carried you
beneath my heart

inside my heart


before I became

the unbearable living
& you became the light



it will happen

again

in four days
as I brush away

the never-was

the never-will-be
the petals & snow

brush dirt from your

stone pillows
& fill the emptiest

part of me
with trembles

of winter
& the sad notes

of birdsongs

Rest in Peace Jason & JonThomas

Mommy loves you...

Him

I could tell you a million things about the man I love

I could tell you his favourite colour is blue,

And that he sometimes hides caramel squares under his pillow for a "midnight snack".

I could tell you that he plants trees

and sings to me when I can't sleep.

I could tell you that his eyes

encompass whole galaxies,

And that when he snores it sounds like thunder.

I could tell you I see lightning strikes when he kisses me,

Or that he has a competitive streak.

Sometimes he's ridiculous and goofy and brings out the best in me,

And sometimes he worries me half to death.

I could go on for days, comparing his laugh to a breeze that kisses the back of your neck on a hot summer day.

But I mustn't breathe a word,

About the way he loves me.

As I, myself, still don't understand how, or why.

I used to be afraid that I'd forget to put on my ring every morning.

Now my entire hand feels empty and vulnerable if I take it off too soon before going to sleep.

die Rose

A rose I'm given and it I take

its thorns I find with bites of red

and though I cry and my hands shake

I drain my face of any dread

The pain of knowing and not all the same

I seek to find a holding firm

but when I tighten my hand exclaims

telling me not to shift or squirm

"Why must it hurt?" my eyes gasp

as water falls and lands on a petal

the rose is stunning and tears make it cast

a finer shine than any metal

I call to sky and earth and air

to release me from this floral trap

but all I hear is devil may care

laughing echo a harsh landing slap 

After a spell I roll my sleeves

the vines of pink don't bother me

they make a trail of zig zag bees  

a warping vine on naked tree

My scars they heal while new ones tattoo

upon my fingers and skin they impose

and while I cannot say "I'm fine." and lie to you

I'm better off with this my Rose

Wood

In the woods a cabin lay

with window panes of ruby red

a door it opens like wind at play

with hairs on larks in tangled bed

Within the walls these flattened trees

a beating thrum is heard in part

the eyes of many will see as they please

but only some will see the heart

Listen and you'll hear the tune

the cabin holds no secrets dim

but if you take this heart devoid of boon

you'll find no rest for your punished sin

This cabin holds a youngster's smile,

a child's trust of one divine

to seek in love this heart beguiled

is to ask of one who says "This heart is mine."

It is in the

Hours after

When heady feelings

Are no longer at head

And

Remaining

(in my blood it seems

you'll stay)

Is this

Smiling mind(my heart,

I fear at times I grow

so near

and,

Afraid,

will recoil from the

Blooming Boquet),

So that

I may write of your memory

(Remember our fingers

crossed across Hearts

and eyes blind in the Sun)

And stain my paper

With an ink

So pure.

I feared such an ink(your lips upon

Mine,

let us breathe

the dew we are giving

to this flowering Bloom)

And feared

The heady feelings of my

Darkened head(ing in the right

direction,

steer me through your days)

Would tarnish such gold(fell from

the sky

on eyes of a new Bloom

and lips of the same make)

But it is not so.

To Jane Doe; With Lust

Quivering in dire need

Your wet lips trace mine

Lazily slithering within

Shivering, a thirst so divine

Senses dark and drunk; heavy

Eyelids partially draped

Vision momentarily petrified

Razor focus never strayed

Tenuous torrents of nerve endings

Rapidly reducing, rupturing under

Your expert manipulations, anticipating

My inhibitions defiantly splits asunder
