Wrapped in a knot

••

I've got strings, chains

ropes and ribbons

Tied in a knot around

My mind and wrapped

All around my body,

•••

It's got a strong, vice

Like grip on me

It keeps getting

Tighter and tighter and tighter,

••

Every second of the day

Every single day

Every week and

Every month,

***********

I can't move or

Free myself

From this burden

From this mess,

••

It's burning my mind

And burning my body

It stings so much,

••••••••

It's tearing and weighing

Me down,

••••••

It's squeezing

And holding me tight,

---------------------------

It inflicts pain

Inside my mind

And on my body,

••••

It won't break itself

From me,

It won't let me leave

Or run,

•••

It became a part of me,

A part of me that

I can't escape ,

•••

It's suffocating me

Like it doesn't want me

To breathe,

••

It doesn't want to make a sound

Or ask for help,

But , maybe..

Just maybe..

I don't want any help..

~~~~~~~~~~~

It won't untangle itself from me

It won't let me go..

It's keeping me as a prisoner..

Of my own creation..

I can't untangle myself

Nobody can save me

From these threads,

Nobody can save me

From these nightmares,

••

I can't claw my way

Out of these chains

Out of this dark hole,

+++++++++++++

It's leaving permanent

Marks on my skin,

It's burning holes

In my skin and my head..

••

It came in like

a wrecking ball

It swung and swung

and swung

Using it force on me,

•••••••••

Leaving me crashing

In this hell,

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

It started a war

And it succeed

It won and defeated me,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~•

It's a war zone

I'm fighting with myself

It's a war zone

I'm fighting with everyone,

•••

It's a war zone

I'm fighting every day,

It's a war zone

I'm fighting with the world,

::::::::::::::::

It's mocking and

Laughing at me,

It enjoys

Wrecking me

Into tiny , little particles,

••

It enjoys

Inflicting me

With pain,

It enjoys watching

Me suffering..

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

I found myself

Slowly and gradually

Slipping away,

•••

Falling into the deepest

Hole of darkness

Into the deepest

Part of pain and torture,

••

Pain is the only

Thing that i feel now...

I don't feel love..

I only feel pain..

••••

But maybe..

I enjoy the pain..

Because..

Pain..

Can

Turn..

Into..

Pleasure..

Ambiguity

The minute spaces in between the letters of the words we write.

In the periods at the end of sentences that doesn't seem to stop the line.

In the commas that we use to somehow linger in the thought.

We are lost, floating in a vast ocean of words in between us.

Where the only thing certain are the ellipsis we so cautionary use.

Afraid of the truth in the answers to questions we dare not ask.

It hurts in knowing that we are close enough to hear each others' heartbeats but still far enough to not be able to say nor hear what we truly feel.

~the color of a metaphor

wind is half-lost in a meadow

    where bloodroot opens

    after the night-flowering

it happens too slowly to notice

this perfect moment

carved into dawn

      of branch & wing

      old notes & rainwater     

how the dew settles

to needles of pine

like drugs for an addict

like unsaid words

of poems I wish I had written

    or the language

    of small birds

    a thousand miles

    from now

~esoteric

notice the stillness

     of water

how it carries us along

its softened edges

     holds us in 

     its fragile depths

the lull of a lonely lake

& its blue mood

     wet with reasons

Understand

It's difficult enough to find the meaning behind the words of a poet;

How much more from the person behind the poet.

It's difficult enough to find the meaning behind the words of a poem;

How much more from the idea behind the poem.

Is it difficult to understand the poems of a poet?

How much more the ideas and the person behind.

~little wife lies

 

 

 

 

 

diary pages smell

like stale silk sheets

a marriage of dirty, wilted petals

& a dying summer

 

but she enjoys the chill

of winter more

 

the thrill of carving lines in snow

always makes her wet

as she spins like a half-lit star

on a northern dance floor

 

she is an august lemon, heavy with juice

 

& he cums in the shape of a god

as she worships

his dark night sky

 

her fingers find the form of his hips

& she falls away to yesterday’s knees

unzips wanting lips

to write throaty sighs on the shadow

of his thighs

 

her mouth opens

to hot silk milk of his veins

pulsing against

another strange headboard

another interstate motel

 

her nails trail the length of him

stretching to read his punctuated skin

remembering his braille spine

as she runs her tongue over

the curve of his moon

 

& swallows each

secret

endless

moaning

echo

 

then slips away
 

 

 

 

his salt, still on her lips when she kisses

her husband

goodnight

~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
