Poet-Muse

the world is my poet

the world is my muse

I am thy poet

I am thy muse

read and be read

be what thou choose

words to regret

words to refuse

poems that we get

poems that we lose

the world is thy poet

the world is thy muse

be thou my poet

be thou my muse

~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

To Hansel and Gretel

they leave little crumbs

along the path in the woods

and if they started

in the daylight

persistence never wore off

even till it’s dark and freezing

and the depths of the night

unleash terrors, urban rumors

haunting, daunting

victims of the past

they leave little crumbs

to this day, this hour

through every starless, moonless night

wild wolves abound, birds eat

remaining morsels trailing behind

they keep counting steps, shadows

playing tricks, seeking colors

stale bread, muddled, stick around

blocking the way from time to time

the bread’s baked in heart and mind

they leave little crumbs

even after near-death encounters

sweet gingerbread lingers on lips

they remember, they still wander

slipping crushed pieces

to mark forbidden forest grounds

with a map to another

lost together, alone together

whatever it takes to stay, though away,

the twins always find their way

home

~notes on reconciliation

 

 

 

 

 

I imagined we were asleep

 

 

still unpaired

or perhaps unprepared

and aching to be lost in

a dream

 

 

quiet while the air moved

between us

 

 

unaware that forgiveness is

a red wall

with no windows

and the only way to see out

is to look within

and emerge like an august sun

full of warmth

 

 

to breathe together

and move together

in a moment

 

 

the way our lips trembled the words

like water

soft blue streams that pulled

what was left in the right direction

so we could find our way

back to each other

Cobweb Constellations

If you are lucky,

You will find fragments of your soul,

Reflected in the starry constellations

Projected endlessly in your lovers eyes.

If you are very lucky,

You will burn brighter than the sun,

A constellation in your own right,

Stretching endlessly through the galaxy.

With any luck,

You will be admired from light years away,

As your story twists and ties with the night sky,

You will wake up whole, by yourself.

Though you burn brightest with your lover intertwined in your cobweb constellations.

Timeless Zone

And I’ll fly into the heavens

Let go of gravity

Soar through the stars

And set myself free


I’ll watch you from a distance

Waiting for you to catch my eye

Time –no restriction

Give me one chance to love

Please try


The jewel of the Nile

Has been found

Never again to be lost

A gem, huge and round


The stars –they glisten

As they pass me by

A twinkle, a glimmer

Shines brighter than the sunlit sky


I don’t know how I got this way

I’ll try to catch my breath again

Never again will

I feel all that earthy pain


Drinking in the timeless zone

A place in eons

For us to be lost in

Is our future to happen

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

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

A haunting

I had those dreams again

The ones where a thin white line

Is all that separates you

From the castle I built for you from

My collection of paperback novels,

And the spread legs of a faceless ghost

As you light the match that burns

Us

To the ground.
