My Ocean (S)

A Tumblr picture; my first bikini

In the ocean

I had been so proud, disabled and beautiful

That's when you saw my shine

You reached out like a moth to a flame

Too fast, my love, too fast

One makes mistakes

when no one hesitates

Oh how much you have grown my love

Not only have you become the man I saw all along

You have become the man you have always wanted to be

I ...

Phases

Phases.  Transitory time patches

Grouped or characterised by a theme.

 

A shade, a colour, a tangible

And identifiable sameness.

 

Consistent, representative.

Phase of fashion. 

Action. 

Musical want. 

 

Reflecting an idea.

Ethos. 

Perhaps belonging. 

Tribal.  Feral.

 

Perhaps marking self out as distinct. 

Separating self from the others.

The Consistency of Water

The clouds streak an arrow of neon green,

My shadow beneath,

Quivering in silence.

 

The sun, glistening through the holes in the patterns,

Showers its fluorescence across the earth below,

I stand in a section divided.

 

The sky is not yet Crimson in nature,

No, it sits still, below the stars, but above the trees,

How I remain stationary, though I sprint,

perplexes...

Family

Your born into a family
No one knows why 
Is it souls recconecting
Or random out of the sky 
You learn lessons from all 
Good and bad 
But family is something not everyone has
Some endlessly search  with false expectations 
And  some find love with no altercations. 
Open your mind and then you will see
Family is nothing different than a tree 
Leaves will come and go while branches will ...

Tilt

Things seen unravelled from the sense they make

                make non-sense of sense.

            Collected and reassembled

        they are merely the same thing repackaged,

    brand new shiny exciting

exotically uncharted.

 

though there is nothing new under the sun

        for she is ever static, yet falling

                it is the light she emits that alters th...

noitarenegeR Regeneration

There is something wonderful in destroying yourself.

In erasing a past which intrudes on every fibre of being,

to flush it

crush it

delight in its demise.

 

To see it gone.

 

Then,

from the embers of delight

squeeze a new you,

squeeze it out between the sludgy thighs of your once

crippled mind,

so infertile with pride 

so chained by the thing you created w...

I've been lied to, setup, used as damage control, taken advantage of. thrown through your ringer and drowned in your crocidile tears. But you never knocked me down. Your sins against me, I wear them as armor.

Life's Lost Life

Flicked  flickering sand slices slashes

Pain and anguish portrude pen to paper

Releasing resting relief from crooked corner

Creation creates creativity

Crusty cankers and  cracked crevices

Scoliosis

Inside her closet are the remains of a broken umbrella with the materials in cinders.

 

Her skin cloak is draped over a spindley coat stand,

most people name it a spine,

most people's are strong,

straight.

They carry the puppet as if a master holding strings...

 

But sometimes autum's trees fall down

without reason

because nature is flawed.

 

Sometimes a stem ca...

8 Months

8 months

Is the longest I've been able to go without sex since I was 16

I stood frozen, mind racing a mile a minute

Trembling as the truth set in

I was unable look away

As memories replayed themselves like movies in the mirror

New characters and slightly different scenario in each one,

But the plot was always the same

Has always been the same

Since that time when I was 1...

A caterpillar's tale

 

Today I am a caterpillar, I am knobbly and green,
I cut that path through the leaf behind me, it shows you where I've been.
I crawl slowly on my belly and I am rubbery like jelly,
And if I should slip from this here cabbage, I might end up somewhere smelly.
 
But soon I will go through changes, that you would not believe,
I'll say goodbye for a while to the cabbage...

Ottava Riva - NaPoWriMo Day 8

Another attempt at my paternal tongue.

Un altro tentativo di mia lingua paterna.

And though I beam with pride as I'm learning.

E anche se mi fascio con orgoglio, come sto imparando.

I'm aware that translated, the metre is wrong.

Sono consapevole del fatto che tradotto, lo strumento è sbagliato.

But this language pulsates to my yearning.

Ma questo linguaggio puls...

In poetry, autumn is approaching death.

The mists of receding memory

part briefly in the shortening days

to feed the fruits of wisdom

to admiring young.


The dark night of winter

is a short blight

before life springs forth

again in proud perfection.


Floral beauty and rich crops

have spread their radiance,

fed their progeny, sown their seeds.

Done their job, returned to earth

to ...
