Letter to a MuseDear Inspiration,Letter to a Muse14 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I need a favour. What I want is for you to go down to a beach where the sand is bone white and rain water flows down
from the mountains into the ocean and for you to lay in the sand and make angels while the sun sets and the sky
turns orange then red then purple then black and then to walk barefoot through the stream back up to the beach
where the car is parked and freestyle a rhyme while thinking about love, and then I want you to find a bottle
or something with a secure top and find a way to seal up that entire moment and send it to me...

help me melt these tears
help me feel the comfort
and the love
of having a mother.
can you please love me
I really do need you
in dark tides
in my life.
can you kiss me goodnight
I want to sleep now
in your warm embrace
without fear for one moment.
can you hold me
and stay with me
make me feel secure
make me feel alive?
can you give me strength
lift my small body from the ground
make me feel the power
of having a father.
can you talk to me
like you know it all
make me smile
make me feel human.
can you be with me
tell me you care
secure my soul
save my body.
can you please stay with me
I don't want to be alone
can you please don't leave me
alone in this cold world?
you can't leave me here
please take me back with you
please love me
I can be a pretty child
I can smile..
please don't leave me
stay with me
take care of me
just don't leave me
I'm so young
I can just see your feet
I will grow..
you can learn to love me..

Losing MyselfI had all but thrown away my faith in everythingLosing Myself14 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
drained my hope to the palest shade of white
wanted everything to end, yearning for peace again and again
i had given up
and then i saw my golden light
in the most angelic form of you
you are my faith in everything
and my hope I've sought so long
you became my saviour with your touch
the breath of life hidden inside your kiss
you are my everything in a world where everything i use to have
was as solid as soft mist
you are the pieces i need to make me whole again
Now i only yearn for the days
when i get to wake up to the safety of your arms
and the brush of your hair against my face
and the days when we can hold each other
the breeze carressing our skin
and i gaze deeply into your eyes
and drown myself into your soul
and lose myself in you

Lost my car in some wild
Speeding and craziness.
What do I do if the brakes fail?
Survive. I think. I forget.
Now I'm walking on the road's soft shoulders.
Springtime and weeds talk country matters in the gravel,
Under the melted butter sun.
A snake, only as long as a pencil, green
As cooked spinach, glides over my bare left foot.
So gentle, but I am waiting for the panic
Frozen hard as solid silver
And waiting for the lethal flinch.
My nerves aren't steel, they're silver.
I wish someone was there to witness my luck, for I have
Often pointed out the X's on my palms
To friends and said, "See, I'm always protected."
They laughed. But luck comes from the gods;
If there were proof of it anywhere, it would be in my
Improbably, while sleeping,
I see the snake again-or is it a different spinach-coloured snake?
It's the same road.
It's the same me, walking along with a crab-apple bush
to lean on as a staff
(My brain is bad at props)
My spinach snake is
