souls offering flesh

Mysterious yesterdays bound of dying years I sound introspective now cause one moment passed like eternal tears evolving wishing I took hold of us tonight your open understanding I linger on nothings giving them out by eating broken laughter Its sinfully simple flavour us loving like young eagerness now tame angels nestled gloriously like edges… Continue reading souls offering flesh

through this year

"Good bye" the last words spoken. My past me left behind in a haze of cigarette ash, cruel words and bloody feathers strewn. Sworn to myself it would be the last last time. I gave you too many finalities. I gave you too many second chances, second thoughts. You gave me too many "I'll never… Continue reading through this year

and love, anyway

I meditate in poetry Not inside it But the words that help to send me off The thoughts that help to ground me Are said in a voice that is fluent in metaphor Bilingual second language Imagery rich in vision and colour When I close my eyes I see myself Not as I look but… Continue reading and love, anyway

across grassy lawns

I walk a path of most resistance Side walk, pavement, footpath, dark and dingy alleyway Trailing, meandering toward my destination But I can't seem to stop stopping along the way I sit and have a coffee in the gutter I wander into someone's yard to lend a hand I set fires and kiss hands and… Continue reading across grassy lawns

bonds positively charged

Feeling rain on my skin As if for the first time Droplets cool as snowflakes Divine scents of earth and ozone and decay The rain trickling down my windscreen no longer looks like tears Water molecules cling to each other Cohesion Hydrogen bonds Positively charged Rivulets seem random But there is always a reason Always… Continue reading bonds positively charged

midnight stars once

Autumn always happens too quickly It sneaks up on you That silent demise A promise of rebirth My soul is quieter Where once a bonfire burned Raging like witch hunt's fire There is now a new flame A deeper one Warm and cool Not burning but bright Leaves, where once green, start to turn at… Continue reading midnight stars once

best part even

Missing you Like the shadows miss the night I'm coming for you Hunting you Are you hunting me? Spiderwebs Like secret messages woven Dangling just out of reach Journeys are the best part Even if the destination is unknown You haunt me in the most delicious ways Future ghost Not Christmas but Halloween The patience… Continue reading best part even

seams not touching

She always had a towel Soft and fresh Blue and white and green like the Earth slung over one shoulder Heart stitched to one corner Each piece attached with a different thread Mismatched Seams not touching Didn't remember when she removed it in the first place Probably somewhere between her first kiss and her first… Continue reading seams not touching

Hold on

It is raining I sit under an old tin roof and stare out into the clouds I am up high The air is sweet with the rain's fragrance Woodsmoke is in the background and it has been a good day A change is in the air The universe is waiting to exhale The pause in… Continue reading Hold on
