Awaken, Dreamer

awaken, dreamer stretch and rise from your pillow there are stars held in the palm of your hand glitter in the corner of your eye glance and just miss the rustle of wings passing by flutter-by, flutter-by, flit, flirt, sip and fly on by the morning sun rises fresh dew on the windowsill I’m waiting […]

Braided Threads

First, cold, blinded, aimless the cold of distant loneliness blinded by the mundane aimless wandering with no real reason insignificant of little worth or value Then, a blue light glimmers gleams in the distance stood transfixed watering eyes produce frozen tears hand lifted, reaching, stretching could this be? breath held And again, hope wiggles in […]

Starstream

beneath a blanket of stars I dreamsqueeze full soul-yearn lift my eyes to the dome lips quivering, a whispered prayer heart-vision tugs pulls the words right from my throat I-love-you’s like wending ribbons greens and pinks in starstream weightless I rise, freedom-firstborn rain on my cheeks, looking east I fly and fly and fly tara […]

Havoc and Consequence

My veins have turned metallic There’s a coppery taste in my mouth I’m dizzy and I’m sure I’m gonna vomit Splinters in my hand Easily slips through my fingertips Picking at scabs Weeping pus from oozing eyelids The squeaking of the gurney’s wheels Echos between my eardrums Frigid ice upon my chest Then ‘clear!’ and […]

There was all around you essence of something else. You pulled in and absorbed it. You realized now that […]

A Black Door Opened

My sister and I were at my house, though I’ve never been there before, it was, to me, my home. Looking out the windows I could see a huge field that stretched far away, the trees on the horizon would only be an inch tall if you measured between your fingers. The fields were covered […]

2:06am (Insomnia)

We were laying on the bed facing one another. Our breathing slowing as we had just made love and it was intense and deep. We were looking into each other’s eyes and I reached over and gently stroked down the side of your face with my fingertips. Your eyes gently closed and you had such […]

The Heart Thief

I called out to the moon late one night: “Here, keep my heart for safe keeping; It’s been hurt so many times and I give it away far too easily. Please protect it from those it is looking for” She smiled kindly and reached down, Surrounded my wounded heart with light And with her beams […]
