Set Free
.
There are those days
you burn so dark
You eyes filled with
scribbled disdain
Always looking for
what can't be there
Bold tipped tongue
underscoring faults
Ice cold fingers
crushing all hope

Those are the days
I burn so bright
my eyes filled with
thoughtful regard
Always looking for
what could be there
if you would set free
not just your heart
but mine as well
..ep 11/13/2017

Finally found the thing to photograph and pair with this piece - 10 months after composing.

Decay
.
You keep going away
so very far away
Each time staying longer
and coming back ...bitter

You keep going away
oh so far, far away
Where people follow scripts
you fine tune just for them

You keep going away
back to the distant past
The only living thing
amongst all that decay

You keep going away
and maybe it's because
There, not a thing is real
especially not...you

Loss
.
Is it ok
to close my eyes
Is it safe to,
for a minute?
Or will I be
lost in that dark
Swallowed up whole
by memories of you

Youth
.
Ah but you don't remember
offering your face to the sun
with nothing more in mind than
the seer of that kiss
For when you look back
there's shadows and echoes
clouding an older vision,
blocking now tired ears
And all that is left
is a tingling
in your soul's fingertips,
the last tangibles
from a grasp so tight
trying to capture,
to hold for forever,
every single newness.

A pity you don't recall
offering your face to my sun
with so much more in mind than
the seer of that bliss
And all that is left
is a tingling
in your soul's shallow depths,
the last tangibles
of a love once right

Everlasting Gobstopper
.
You take all your anger
Wrap it ruthlessly
in festering misery
Hide it away from the world
to feed in utter darkness
to your brittle hollow bones
And it tastes just like the past
just like your here and now
just like, alas, your future:
All icy cold, metallic
coated with old bitterness
all your favorite flavors
And that is, ultimately,
why you couldn't consume me,
gagging on the sweetest love

Float Away
.
Today the summer air
felt like a living thing,
bringing me back to life:
Cares and worries tasted of
sweet spun cotton candies
light enough to float away,
freshly cut green things trailed by
far off buzzing lawn mowers
imposing conformity,
All mixed with a nearby pool
filled with chlorine and laughter,
splashing, spraying drops of hope.
But mostly it was you
because you finally,
OH finally, at last,
felt like finished business

Yes, I'm still here, just on mute at present. Storms and whiteouts rein in my secret chambers of voices, keeping everything in chaos and delightful hiding. Soon. Someday soon, a deluge will make its way here, for you're thirsty. Until then

My pen is inkless and the marks carved on paper invisible expressions, overlooked and making no sense without a thousand spills to reveal. Your smudge or mine, emotional rose petals scattered but not yet crushed beneath careless, or careful, weight

Yes, I'm still here, just on mute at present. Monsoons and avalanches filling my secret chambers of voices, keeping everything in silence and suspenseful brewing. Soon. Someday soon, a deluge will make its way here to your thirsty. Until then

Stripes
.
More than anything else
resentment is the death
of everything that's love.
Anger and resentment
dig grooves so vast and deep
arguments need no words,
unsaid things loud as shouts.
Too late, too late, my dear,
we've arrived at that point
Apologies will fail
Nothing forgotten, and,
nothing is forgiven
We'd have to shed our skins,
tigers without their stripes
Just how likely is that?

Reminder
.
You say I taught you
how to love
You say I taught you
the value of
love
And that it is
You
But how could you then
stay
when I would always be
a reminder
of an under-valued you
of a time You
didn't even love
you

Up

There's so many things
in life
that hold you
down
I'd love to be the one
right now
who lifts you
up
If you'd just let me
show you
how easy
love

Again
.
The nightmares are back
What does that say?
Oh, what does that say?
I'm weak, I'm strong
I'm right, I'm wrong?
The nightmares are back
What does that say?
Oh, what does that say?
I know, I dare
I'm alive, I'm aware
Again. Once more.

Seasons
.
I'd wake
in the dead of the night
as you'd stealthily twine
your warm fingers with mine
Work roughened and hard
tenderly meshed with
small fragile softness
to sleep holding hands

Now I don't wake up at night
because there's no reason to
Memories poor substitute
for warm flesh against mine,
even just palm to palm
And you, all you do is sleep,
deep, dreamless, and forever
Because it's your season to

Angels Rest
.
How can you not love
a flower
that has such
a pure core?
A core visible
as a being
of such radiance,
an Angel's rest?

How can you not love
a being
that has such
a pure core?
A core visible
as a flower
of such radiance,
here Angels rest
