Slay and Kiss AwaySo this is how the story goes:
I live my life not living very much.
Most chapters are so-so, if even that.
This is the defining plot.
But here's the twist:
My character is screaming for more.
She is an adventuress somewhere inside,
Slaying the dragons of her mind.
All other dragons are pretentious.
Come along, self,
And kiss goodbye the idleness.
I need not be so dead anymore.
When you are not here ...Cold as the frost
Dries as the bark
Motionless as the time when you're away
Dark as black
Immense as the immensity
Lost as the last hair that fell out
Cutting as the reed
Straight without the curves of your body
Infinite as the universe itself
Dead as the leaves in autumn
Salty as the flow of my tears
Impenetrable, empty, difficult, off
Sad as some songs
The bed is as lonely as I am.
Even Sapphires Fallstirs the fallen leaves
into the sublime
and silence is found
around my feet
these dust motes swirl
upon a stage
long gone dark
where generations of shadows
became married to my flesh
silk curtains have drawn upon my eyes
though sometimes I can feel
a crack here
solidity in its unmaking
it will be slow
though if not
pleasure can still be found
within an immobile pause
as the blue light moon rises
as it has before
light falls through rafters tall
sparkling cold water droplets that fall
from some unseen broken pipe above
resembling sapphire diamonds
or so it has always seemed
where I was once seen
by so many eyes
with only the moon now
an audience for my voice
