Lullaby

Sing me a lullaby,

tenderly, repeatedly.

Calm my soul.

Take me to a place of no fear.

So I may lay

and close my eyes

to the rhythm.

Your voice, comfort

to this dying heartbeat.

Your love, I'll bring as I go.

ONE

She knew he was the one

Not because he made her

weak in the knees,

but because he made her

strong in heart

~diagnosis dementia

this is the linger

           the roam

the slow fade of grey

matter

          & all that matters

unbalancing the nuance

of pause

a hyphen that rivals two words

like bookends

          an epigram

in the unnamed wind

          a hologram

that holds no color at all

this is the leaning barn

          the steeping tea

the aftermath of winter

to the juniper

          forgetting the fall

this is the wait

the way white clings on oleander

& its orphaned memories

& this

this defies the uncoupling

this becomes the distance of reach

in changing seasons

          the love of two hands

as if they could ever possibly anchor

the direction the moon

drifts

lah 4.18.17 ©

in dedication to some dear friends facing this disease.

I believe love conquers all.

cross-breeding.

i am fascinated with dying, and

i think i can do it more than once.

i don't trust that you are worth fear.

sometimes, you love me too easily.

i won't write about the apocalypse,

cry for nuclear stalemates, infanticide,

though i am still half-deaf

with all this ringing in my ears.

(and the sky is such an ugly thing.)

why don't we chase the horizon

and put the ocean from our minds?

there is no life i can imagine

without you lying by the radiator,

quietly rolling cigarettes

and memorising science fiction.

~u & i

pronouns hang in the hollow

of my throat

          trapped vowels, too hard

Love Poem

To you whom I adore and love,

Your name is that of a Skylark's song. My mouth becomes a garden filled with fragrant budding roses shyly blooming in spring when I speak.

Your face is the smile on my face when you look at me.

The one you gave me when we first met. I may lose my way but I know your face will always find me for you will be looking for that smile—the one you left and shared with me.

Your arms are my fortress, my strength. The one that always picks me up when I fall. You cradle me in your arms. Your hugs, my safe place. An umbrella in the rain.

Your chest is my favorite radio station.

I put my ear against it as I listen to that strong beat. Cheeks flushed as I watch that rise and fall when you breathe. Hearts in sync, warm blood flowing in our veins, we dance to the rhythm of our heartbeats.

Your hands are magic. They leave a trail of words in many secret places. Creating poems as it glides on my skin. A gentle carving on every line and curve. You touch not only my body but something deeper within.

Yours is the name

that made my soul sing.

Yours is the face that I gladly

wake up to on every new day.

The chest that houses my heart, my life.

The arms I will always hold on to.

The hand that writes my poetry.

I thank you for loving me.

Like Unsweetened Coffee

I have this taste in my mouth

Bitter

Like lemon and dandelion but no color

Sometimes I get the taste of metal

Of old pennies under my tongue

Just before a cold

Like I put my money where your

Mouth was

But this one

I feel its heaviness

In the back of my throat

This one

I can’t swallow without

Suffocating

This one I can smell

Like dew

The rain abandoned last night

And it wants to know why

This one eats at me

And the more I salivate

The more twisted

My perspective

So I try to get it out

With whiskey and razorblades

With words

With poetry

But its one of those

Longer-Lasting

Flavors

This one

I get

When I know you’re leaving

So I keep spitting into the sink

I keep washing down the taste

But you keep leaving

Never A Song

I've always wondered

what it'd be like

to be the kind of girl

whose name inspires

a song or wordless tune

meant to rise up

like the heat

savored in sunny June.

Instead, I'm just a

wordless whisper

breezing over empty 

pencil marked pages

where I've erased

these childish notions

of what real love

once meant to me.

Love Poem Challenge - Let's Test The New Challenge Abilities
Written by Syne in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Unsaid

I know that words cannot be unsaid

That memories are hard to leave behind

And fallen tears cannot be unshed

But maybe we can still be alright

I know regrets we have a hundred

And broken promises even more

And though our words cannot be unsaid

Maybe we can try to let it go

Forget about the things we ever did

Pretend that all the things we ever said

Can be unsaid

And we can start again
