a disclosure in the form of a secret

rest your berries
flat against the creaseless immaculate
say there is no one
say there was only one
bereft and loved

undo a silent longing
pliant cords strung against will
slung against walls
palms dissolving into gloss
there, a footprint of a tired night
succulence reeks of miss

your cheeks, overgrown with weeds?
on this
cream of life
where unspoken vows pirrouette
fall on ashes
regenerate on a wrinkled desecrate
say in all honesty
without self-delusion
say, in words infused with meaning
with a petal blush and a thorny wake

undo a silent longing

a simple phase with power. your strength in poetry is the peels of emotion left in uniquely worded phrases. a distillation of energy that forces empathy- this is the gift.

I did not realize. This is the one I saw birthed. And now, as I read it again, my words are inadequate.

It was important, it is more so now. I also didn't realize it is a final paper, like the last leaf blown from the oak tree before it sleeps. It's past and agony and feels like the melting one one's soul, very soul, so much love and loss and depth which cannot contain the regrets, no regrets. Oh my, Mari, the decision was made..."a petal blush and thorny wake spill" and I didn't hear it until now, bless you Mari. These are amazing words which fill me to the brim with enormous emotion for your strength in this and for your life, for regrets, Mari.

what i really like about your work is this complete, almost desperately innocent lack of grandeur. it's all so very tiny and unpretentious.

Doctor WhoHurtling through time and space,
                                                     Can he ever find a place?
                                             Jumping forward to a brand new earth,
                                                Jumping back to an empty hearth.
                                             Forward again to see the Face of Boe,
                                                 Back in time to meet an old foe.
                                               He is pursued by an incessant fact,
                                              The likes of which he can't take back.
                                               His entire home, his people his soul,
                                               All gone, leaving him without a goal.
                                                   The last of the Time Wars,
                                                        The end of his kind,
                                                   He is trapped b
