The column of you spine
Will hold you up for millenia, but
The walls of your heart are weak and without support,
They will fall at the first blow
And all that will be left are ruins.
I stare at the monitor ungrasping
Of what I see in front of me. Why is is I can pour my heart and soul
Into a poem and the person who list the colors of the rainbow
Or how they cut all with bad grammer and […]
You are but an insect beneath my heel,
I care not for your buzzing in my ear beyond the moment
It takes me to wave you away. I despise
You less than I am indiffrent to your attempts at seducion
And false […]
I need to be more outgoing.
In the literal sense of the word…
As in going out. I’m too much of a homebody
Lazing away and writing about things I’ve
Never known. Wonder what I would write
About if I saw more […]
I can’t write in shorthand and all
My early teachers despaired at my futile attempts at cursive.
My print was such that caused curses
(and attachment of curxive practice sheets to returned work)
And my […]
Tasting the sin of her lips
I felt a hint of the fire that awaited me
After our petit mort for surely that
Death will not be so small and I will truely
End for no mortal is meant to sip from
The god’s […]
A slight slip of a girl running down the sidewalk
Twisting her lithe body between the crowds
Just going along never hitting a soul as she fliters
In and out of my sight from where I sit at the small cafe.
From behind her sunglasses she watches the crowd
Searching for her next victom with ruthless intent.
Ah! There, the unsuspecting man.
Bare feet pound the sand in near silence,
Until, she leaps, giving a a […]
We wrote about earrings already.
Somebody messed up.
I hear a bell like chime dancing.
Seeking its source I see you
Waiting tables for nicles and dimes.
I’m draw to the curve of your ear
And the Wind chime earring
Hanging there ringing in the breeze
Of you […]
Her bitten red lips
Look more tempting than any snake
Favored apple as cliche and worn as
It sounds. The white of her skin is
That of a thousand stories’s description
Of snow and lovely purity,
And the […]
What a word: heartache.
Ache normally implies physical pain,
And the heart is a physical thing, yet
Heartache is not “real”,
It is only an emotinal response
To something that if we are
Logical we can ignore.
The wind knocks through the braches of her limbs
And tangles the leaves of her Autumn hair.
She is a willow bending in the wind, then
An oak standing firm and strong and she
Is a girl lovely as a plum tree in bloom.
The ring glints on her finger
As she talks with her hands.
It is gold or maybe copper
(it is hard to tell in this half light)
And a single ruby (or maybe the last drop
a dragon’s heartblood) and she hasn’t […]
The beast was stubborn, willful
And refused to give up even
When it would be wise.
Teeth grip fiercly and
All you can do is hold on.
Her eyes were hooded
And nothing showed on her face
As she was told to leave.
She remembered being trusted
Once upon a time.
Maybe she souldn’t of cried wolf.
She is a butterfly midflap
As she flips through the air.
She is a vision in lace as she twists
Uncaring of her skirt as the wind
And sky caresses her thigh.
Her laughter rings out like that
Old cliche bell […]
Love is Friendship Set On Fire
She set my skin a blaze with just a glace,
I beame an inferno when her hand brushed
Mine and when her lips touched my chapped ones
I knew nothing but flame.
The wind chimes seem to dance in the wind,
Their sound so soothing it is like
Sleep incarnate. He charmed is way into my life
And now we sit on the porch a thousand years later
Listening to the wind rush […]
When I remember the other days rain
My heart feels sodden with the water
That fell from the skies (one day,my eyes) and
All I can think about is Grams needing
Help down from the car to avoid the puddle.
