A Simple Matter of Ascension

Releasing yourself to the stars, you feel elated, vibrant, at peace. For once, finally at peace. Problem is, in doing so, you condemned her to walk through the mud alone. You held one wing while she held the other. Her hands reach skyward, a silent prayer on her lips. You fly in ethereal bliss, unaffected. […]

A Vision I Had

I see you on your knees, as if in prayer or supplication, you are nearly weeping and there appears to be a heavy burden weighing on your shoulders and hands now a cloud descends, covers and engulfs you and the mist from the cloud coats your skin and covers your beard like dew and you […]

Like Peas in a Pod

like peas in a pod we go together like bananas and yogurt… you be the banana ummm I’ll be the yogurt, go on, dip into my creamy depths but oh I’m getting ahead of myself… yes, that voice of yours, I could listen to for hours while you talk about science and geeky things and […]

One such devoured moment REBLOG

candice, desert queen and poetess of passion. I adore both her as a woman and her writing and her heart. I am not overt even when good green absinthe is poured over a sugar cube the silver tongs holding sweetness just. I am not overt will not tell you of my sinning urge to strip […]

The Consequences of Being Emotional

the blackening, a holding back a build-up to future betrayals lines covering over whispers of a heart the twisting of realities the lighting of one lamp while calling it by another name the shift of dirt-caked fingers first here then there the pulling of an ear and wringing of hands the smirk while watching a […]

Starsurfing REBLOG

I thoroughly enjoyed the magic of exploring the stars in this piece. I once left my body, Off into the night, Not into a dream, Nor into my mind, But careening into the sky, Imitating a cosmonaut, I found myself in an ethereal state, Riding the coat tails of a comet, Like a wandering gentleman, […]

Draining the Barrel

drained the whole barrel not a drop spilled, every letter etched into my heart, the lines already fading filled to overflowing I release myself fully my thoughts to tears, tears to ink heart splashed along the page myself became the missing link, poured all inside emotions growing the scratching quill, it kept me going left […]

Starsong

In the deep twilight a red star twinkles. Its song reverberates through time and space. If I stretch forth my fingers to the heavens, I can capture the melody. Breathing out a harmony of my own, I release it. It sounds like poetry, But in reality, the music is heartsong. Listen and memorize these words. […]

To The One Who Loves Me

You are the light in my eyes. The love of my life. The reason I am happy. You are the breath in my lungs. The blood in my veins. My every waking thought. You are the spark of my passion. The reality to my fantasy. The one who holds my heart. tara caribou | ©2020 […]
