entry picture

 

 trailing in my wake

 like unwanted creatures

 searching for a home

 they have sought me out

 once more

 

 and each time

 arising more darkly reincarnated

 seeking to tear to pieces

 all I have fought to be

 

 continually attacking

 the phoenix of hope within

 trying so hard to rise

like clenching fists,

from thence on as foam,briefly lingers

before falling again,slower,more raggedly

into lower receptacles.

little panther and I

entry picture

Slinkily invading the darkness.

she carries the theft of the moon

in her eyes.

stopping momentarily

becoming a figuration,

more black than the night she is in,who

looking up to my window,see,s me,

also thieving the moon with my eyes

albeit for the sake of my heart.

Mrs. Nofear

 

she does,nt

and never did fold.

she faces truth with truth.

I can easily believe

she never once let pain cross her face

despite many a battle raging inside.

always stood defending the ramparts of home was she

no doubt alone there many times.

thank heaven she and victory knew well of each other.

I had found an oasis

of an ending

entry picture

close exchange of sighs,

silenced,separated.

haunted by abandonment

intoxicated with sadness.

a song of the heart broken into

innumerable irreparable pieces of lamentation

a dirge indeed to a precious conspiracy

now returned

without the hope of redemption

to the most beautiful of dust.

high jinx?

entry picture

had I been better camouflaged

and less noisier

then the Kestrel would have had no cause

to relocate his beauty

and ethereally stalk further down the valley

 

while in my slow stumbling pursuit to further my adorations

I wonder...

is he, the aerobatic artiste,the drummer of air

not actually hunting,but

taunting my clumsiness?

frantically writing.

the floor is strewn with crumpled papers bearing crumpled promises.

splutter turned into a laugh

I conceived you

over many many years.

you slowly arose,beautifully unfolding

 

growing into

the guardian spirit of my heart

 

together we have arrived.

Home.

our new romance waiting in newborn and gentle laughter. later, and moreso  in a forged closeness.   came the brushing of your strong young hand against my hair. subtle caresses,  the heat of our bodies even when apart.   the looking into each others eyes. never really seeing eyes, but a dream offering itself forever.
