What Shadows Know

I wouldn't have believed it had I not seen it with my own eyes. In broad daylight no less! I thought to myself "Sam, you're insane!" Yet, there it was. A shadow moved across the lobby of Hotel Vista, lurking and ducking into corners, making straight for the stairs. I was struck by its wrongness, I tried to tell myself at first that it was an optical illusion, or perhaps a man in black, skulking in the shadows, but no! It was a shadow unfettered, unattached to anything or... anyone. My horror and curiosity was piqued, I followed it up the stairs. It didn't appear to see me, if the thing could "see" at alll.          I crept up quietly as it

Shake My Brain

It's the life, the beat, the whisper on the street ... the one last call of the thing that always calls. Where were you when I tried to explain what it meant, what all that horrendous action on my part was? There was a time in my life when all I wanted was just for you to know what I was doing all of this for. That part of me was the young me, the lip service me, the one that did only what she shouldn't, when she shouldn't for the purpose of achieving the wrong means. Where were you when this all came down? Were you staring at the one last heaven that I had fallen from or were you blinded by the fire of where I was headed? I am proud of my se

It's a Three Cloud Day

"There's not a cloud in the sky today! Not a single cloud! Go look, not even one! It's beautiful..." - Overheard at a sushi bar -- No cloud days always make me sad, Make me think of the desert, Make me think of dry on dry on solid rock, where nothing grows. But me. I grew there, from a child into a tree with long branches. So happy to see the man was wrong, This was a three cloud day. White and puffy like you wouldn't believe. All today's life, all today's joy floats slowly across blinding blue sky. On my way out, stomach sick and heart open, I don't know why today's the day, I don't know why I feel this way, But now I'm ready to

Doesn't Have To Mean A Thing

Titled: Hey it's poetry, it doesn't need to mean anything. Beauty always makes me cry, oh my dear I have cried rivers over you. Slow and sweet I've let that salt flow to my release. Hallelujah. It doesn't mean what you think when you hear it, it's bliss, it's blessing, it's knowing something more than what you could possibly describe and yet surviving it somehow. "Remember when I moved in you?" Yet you wouldn't,  it was only a dream. My dream, one I'd share if I knew how. Yet there we breathed air that made the world new. "But you don't care for music... do ya?" This is our song. I didn't care for his voice, I figured that was why he was p

Dating

In the end it's wanting, isn't it? In the end it's my same old mistake. In the end, I think someday, I may not want it to end. We met and re-met again, through the use of friends. I never knew it was like THAT. He never said it was like THAT. I got the feeling it was like THAT, When he first touched my hand. He was warned you want no part of me. I was warned he sought out broken women. We were both warned, but neither listened. It turns out warnings aren't worth what they used to be. He was shy and treated me like glass, and I was scared. He was an old fashioned man, and I didn't want to trust it. I gave him every reason to

One night I woke Coming to consciousness As my lover moved, gentle and lithe In her sleep. In her warm glow, I kissed shoulders, no stranger to my lips Wrapped an arm around, Careful to curve under, The fullness of her belly, Our child, My child, Our future. She smiles, secure in knowing it's me Murmurs in her sleep She says nothing but I understand He kicked and she adjusts Leaning against me to find a place that's comfortable I know then I would do anything To never see her smile fade To always feel his life below my hand One night I woke Rousing from this dream I knew this was the real world Because my hand met only

Only Myself to Blame

Only Myself to Blame

I could not banish it in Springtime, I could not work it from my head in Fall, In Summer, I heard your name in everything, Now Winter comes, you're all that warms my soul. Yet you see my love, Like an imperfection of the skin. As a doctor views disease, Or an injury of the limb. To be reviled and remedied, Or just diagnosed absurd. Though, you will find my love, Is not so easily cured. In Spring, you sought silence, And I thought distance best. In Fall, you chose indifference, And I escaped to books and test. In Summer, your irritation burned, Just as my longing did, it seems. Winter comes again, and you are gone, Yet still

Boy Don't You Know?

No boy, don't you understand? I hunger not for your kisses, Face to Face, Lip to Lip, Breath to Breath, Drinking in and Drunk. No boy, don't you understand? I desire the way your body kisses, Cheek to Neck, Hip to Hip, Chest to Breast, Sinking in and Sunk. Boy, little boy, don't you know? A smothered bud will never grow? Boy, you love me too heavily, You show all your cards too readily, Learn to tease out our time, Learn the beauty of heat that burns slow! Yes boy, one day you'll understand, A woman is a complicated thing. Lover and Friend, Mother and Child, Desired and Desiring. Yes boy, I'll teach you how. How to hav

Youth's Promise

Unprepared and unrehearsed, it is the intake of breath, the sound before sound, the spark of creation, the tuning of taut strings. In the space silence makes, gently amoug waiting dark, tension and vibration pitch, its the birth still yet to be, it is my life in the wings. Before the music plays, Before the dancer steps, Before the actor speaks, Before the conductor strikes, the anticipation of a dream. I am the feeling in the air, the key before its struck, the cue that has been sent, a whole lifetime's worth, of passion in a bottle. Existence is unknowable, faith so very far away, certainty always uncertain, I am a da

I can hear your voice behind the glass, As if you were in the room next to me. Croaking out raspy words of promise, to Stand By Me. Your sister in fate pours out Another Little Piece of My Heart, As we confide, me from well lit rooms, And she from smokey, beer soaked bars that match my mind. Where are you now, that you seem so near to me? I know you both to have moved on into eternity. And yet... And yet... Your vivid colors and sounds give you away, Breathing a life that is somehow more than you ever were. Did you know? Did you ever think for decades to come we'd know your secrets, And fall in love with your words? Did you

Whims

I can't explain the strangeness of my chemistry, but coffee is actually an anti-depressant for me. Somehow, through the miracle of the bean I went from mope to ecstatic in 4 shots of espresso. Not hyper, not manic, not jittery or irritably energetic: genuinely happy and alert. Somehow, I spent hours buzzing along on this tide of brewed goodness and music. As I land, I discover that I've written three new pieces and created a cafepress account with smarmy t-shirt sayings that can be found here:http://shops.cafepress.com/NoxThreeTimes If you are so inclined, take a look, some of them are funny.

At Last

At Last

That phrase is an interesting one "At Last". It's usually followed by some declaration of long sought desires fulfilled. At last is usually the precursor to gloating, the precursor to praises or the precursor to the chance to finally exhale. My "at last" is not any of those things, and rather than finding it odd it seems tedious. I want to roll my eyes and snort at myself, muttering: "It figures." with the kind of smug distain typically reserved for the older set looking down on anyone ten years their junior or for the younger set for anyone a that far their senior. Then I remember, I'm just talking to myself here. At last, after a long stre

In Memorium

I think that losing one to death that you never really got along with can be harder than losing one you fully loved. When she died, the day after I saw her in the hospital, I was not assaulted with feeling. There was no immediate grief or longing. There was even very little loss. When she was alive we rarely spoke, despite hearing OF her and being so close constantly. My earliest memories of her were laced with screaming, curses and my Mother's tears. I protect my Mother fiercely, she is one of my own and this woman, despite bearing her into the world would never have my love after those moments. My out-dated sensibilities, and antique sens
