Remember to Float

They asked me why I do not fly,
I told them it’s not that I don’t know how too,
I just need to be closer to the earth right now.

They asked me why I do not close my eyes
I told them it’s because I see so much better when they are open

They asked me how I move so quickly 

I tell them that I am pure electricity

It’s important to never get too close
Never stand in a puddle and grab on to ...

Spirit Animal

 

I can feel all of you writhing together

Pooling your heat

You are hot wires running through me

Electric as you cover

Your thin bodies wrapping themselves tightly

racing like  wind to a wildfire

You are covering me in flame

 

Dangerous animals are fleeing these woods

as you turn figure eights

creating paths of orange and red

trails of yellow to b...

Forlorn

 

Bring me someone new fast

 

No wait,

Bring me someone who is fast

and maybe together we can fall 

through these sleepless nights

like stars that burn out,

we will slip awkward, as we dip

fluttering like ash

we will darken the summer sky

filling it with heavy grays and whites

 

 We will become a flash of tumbling embers,

just built to spi...

Chrysalis 

Water

 Throat

 Heart

 Root

 

I am surprised to hear my voice

so bold and sure of it’s self

as if it weren’t my own

 

and for a second there

I have to wonder.

 

I listen again,

 

There is a distant sound

of harmony and balance,

they are bleeding together

the masculine with the feminine

 

It is a song

Fire

 

I’m on fire

A burning bed ignites me

 

I sleep

so you can dream,

awake

 inside of me

 

I sleep so we can speak

I do not try when I’m awake

 

What would I say?

 

I’m sorry?

 

I’m on fire

In my sleep

with you

wrapped up inside of me

 

The wishing tree waits

So I wish,

and when I wish

 

 I wish th...

Candy Apple Love

entry picture

 

I loved you once.

Really, I did.

 

It was a sweet candied apple, kind of love

a legs wide open, love

a love that knew each and every one of my secrets.

Love?

 

Do you remember the night 

that I wrote testaments across your body?

 

You a moonlite canvas pale as washed wool.

 

I dreamt mad ...

Joan of Arc

(part 1)
 
Loud, brash, sweet thing
Bring me some water to wet my whistle
For you
Love only lasts ten minutes at a time
 
Only this time
The time is mine
So go on over
Lay it down
 
Cause all your cards ain't showin
And my hands are full
 
I'll drop this heavy load
When words spill soft and free
Meaning what they should

Broken Crystals

entry picture

 

 



Crystals cover the ground

 

They sky is covered in clouds

 

They say that white is the color of absence

 

Just like the caterpillars in the spring,

eating all the pretty leaves,

 

you in a swift second

blow in

stealing all the color from the sky.

 

Gorging yourself o...
