Forgotten
                [I want to be remembered like you want to be forgotten.] Your pupils remind me of ink splotches. The blacks melting into the golden brown. Pupils that could be perfectly round but aren’t. They are almost heart shaped.                But then again;                you’re not the one in love. You told me once that the hardest thing in life is to walk away from what you love. But what if I told you it is easier when you say sorry first?               Not that an apology will make everything right. Empty dial tones and static keep the world a mystery to me. Your letters are always signed with the lyrics to you

Write It To Me
  You tried to capture the ocean with your mouth And whispered to me late at night About how the moon was up there hiding Behind the clouds that told a Story of your life The breeze that tangles my hair turns Into a deafening storm That whispers poetry into my ears When the starlit sky is a just a part of The story of your life Wait- don’t write it to me now Wait until that bottle of whiskey On your nightstand is almost Empty of desire And then- Still don’t write it to me Write it to me when the world Has swallowed you whole six Feet under where all you hear is The rattling of skeletons beside You.

Brushstrokes of Recovery
Step one. Take the brush and gently dip it in black before you put it on the canvas and paint the night sky. Slowly you cover the canvas in darkness; soon not a speck of light will be left in your [painted] world. Step two. Clean the brush and listen. Listen to what the doctors tell you and remember the meaning of all that medical mumbo-jumbo. Step three. You try to get up but you can’t. It is as if you are chained to this stool; uncomfortable like your life. Hold on to the brush and pick a dark blue don’t forget to look up at the clouds making darkness contrast with what used to be. Step four. Push the memories of a past li

My Words
You have drained me of all my words. Don’t tell me I can still drown in the words like I once used to. Stop whispering about how the ocean’s salt will make the pain disappear. Because you know it is easy to whisper poetry into deaf ears.

Cher
Like the moon she had a side to her so bright, even the stars were blinded by her light. And like the stars she had a warmth to share with the entire universe; she never ran out. She was much like the sun; showering everyone she met with warmth and happiness, because that’s just who she was. Now she has spread her wings to visit the moon, the stars and the sun; to tell them to keep on shining her love onto the earth.

Pegasus Was Lost
We were juxtaposed; you and I, circling each other like a pack of hungry wolves. Your hungry eyes gazing deep into mine and all I could think about was how did you know my name? We went stargazing and you held my hand in yours, asking me about my favourite food while I attempted to remember the Latin phrase you spoke to me on our first date. I desperately tried to rewind broken clocks in an attempt to go back to that day and hear you say it again; I knew it would be almost orgasmic. The day we sat down for tea, I read your fortune in the leaves; nothing but good, I said, though nothing but bad was what I saw. But then- you lef

Love in Your Arms
All I ever wished for was to find love in your arms. Little did I know that you could never love me; for she walked ahead of me and stole your heart before I had the chance to give you mine.

Broken Teaspoons
She once told me about how she wondered what it would be like to be a teaspoon. I remember laughing while wondering what went on in her mind. She looked at me and laughed along “don’t you wonder?” she asked, more serious. Being a teaspoon, forced into scalding hot tea and hidden away in a dark drawer. The teaspoon in my cup suddenly had a story I took it out and looked at her. “What would it be like? That hot tea must hurt,” she mused. What if it does hurt them? And even though I laughed at first; now I understood what she meant. “What would it be like to be allowed to make my own choices?”

Beginning of You
You would be a terrible mom. My bare feet stuck to the linoleum as I paced back and forth in the bathroom. Panic was in full bloom, or perhaps it was the anxiety of the unknown. This was a test of will; days of waiting to confirm what I already presumed to be true, were tormenting. Empty boxes littered the floor, proof of my determined perseverance, I wanted it to happen. It had to happen and needed to happen. Then it did, two blue lines. Leaning against the counter, I tried to process what I was seeing; was this real? The first of five the past three days, and I was not sure if it was wishful thinking, or fear. Tossing the pee-stick into t

A Poem for the Guardians
Blind Guardian Is a pinch of prog A sprinkle of thrash And a massive helping Of glorious power metal A genre they helped to create Ever since their inception In beautiful Germany In the year 1985 Affectionately thought of As a group of traveling bards They once reshaped The Silmarillion As a concept album With guitars dancing like violins Or a fanfare of royal horns Or the gentle persuasion of a harp And all throughout their hallowed career Their lyrics are of purest poetry Sung from the lips of a man With the appearance of a bartender And the voice of a wailing Norse god While drums gallop onward like so many Thundering hooves into ce

A Very Beautiful Person
Today my eyes were red                       lids were heavy                                       I stood at a bar waiting                                                                and I heard Him talking                                                                                       He said He hated poetry,             that it is worthless in this day and age                                                     nothing new is real and therefore                                                                                      every moment past has been a lie                   deception crafted carefully,

not sleeping, but dreaming (buying a moon)
in the dark my mind slips restless leaves my body finally still assured in sensation composed and at ease with the love that pours out of me . this is my only set of tongue & teeth my shape has been changed by the language we speak and I can not be anything other I am a torrent earnestly exalting I will spill honestly for all to see I am etched in wonder & delight . would you have me be cut from simpler cloth would you have me silence blood & singing bone would you have me?

Pompeii
When our world finally explodes in a chaotic mix of ash and hellfire, I wonder how they will find our bones:               in a moment of panic, fighting for our last breath               or in the ruins of something beautiful.

Instead Of Birth
Maybe an arrival was meant to be a salvageable death  --   a rescue from infinity with the buffer of life-cycles, a last resort for the forgotten fragments of a star. For the endless burning through of burning -- a skin to shed; a pulse, a strand of something - the Earth a votive holder for days, and years, measured by a tree - another star to know eternity.

Scattered
The champagne bottle explodes. We are found in the sky, the puddles... in the bubbles floating to die on the surface. But we are golden sunshine rays, overflowing, falling wild, tumbling with no concept of the impact, pending... disappearing. This moment will not come again; these selves will metamorphose. This moment will not come again. It bubbles, with our laughter, to the surface, disappearing, and we are left with pieces in our hands.
