"I'd like to understand
the delicate pathophysiology
behind these endocardium micro-knives."


spring by aimeelikestotakepics Frozen by xxida My home consists of pearls by joiedevivre89

The Pisces in the teapot

I pour out,
A quiet dream-cloud,
Allow the watercolours to seep, 
Gough’s starry night in a puddle,
Leaks out of me  
And collects in faded floral teacups.

I lose purpose and richness
My strainer has collapsed
And my brew haemorrhages out
Like storm-water down the gutter.

I've drained out to the ocean,
Where I evaporate
And repeat the blue-process,
Like laundry day.

Sleepless jewelsI'd like to understand
the delicate pathophysiology
behind these endocardium micro-knives.
Heart-quicksand bubbles away at the steel
but does not slow their invisible motors.
They spin like paddle steamers
in ocean-eternal.
My theory bets on adrenaline:
beauty excites my adrenal glands,
Alpha receptors engaged
as my eyes marry your
melted amethysts dropped in jade-pools.
DepersonalisationI often find the Universe
In my tachycardia,
Anxiety stamps out
In heavy stallion hoofs.
I’m left with inflammation,
I feel like an ant that’s been squeezed
Between the thumb and index finger
Of a curious child.
I lie crippled,
Like a mermaid out of water.
I wait stupidly for
Mum, dad, sister,
Hand to scoop me up,
Place me back in clear waters.
I wait until I’m almost dead.
A primitive nerve decides to use all the energy stores I have
To flip myself over.
I fall back to my murky waters,
Dear God,
Why must it be this way?
FrostBeneath saw-dust skies
You unfurl
Like the petals
Of distant and haunted gardens,
That are never quite real.
When the sun climbs
And through the slats of my sister’s apartment window,
I claw at the fake mink bed-spread,
Watch dust particles come to rest.
I fall asleep and
You visit me
In my dreamscapes,
Your soul in a strange, alien-animal:
I know it’s you,
With a body full of
Warmth and
Soft love.

P.S. I love you is a collection of features of writers I love. All text is from the literature deviations linked. The visual thumbs are for decorative purposes to match the tone of the poet only. The features are purposefully posted in a random order. ♥

It is wonderful to see that you share the work of other writers here, Kathryn.  I like artists who allow others to gain popularity through their journals or word of mouth.  :)
