paint me rose red and let me lie

the music is not here

the rhythm is slowly being filtered

by the breaking of my glass

and i am falling alone beneath the moon

My butterflies have left me

Depleting the oxygen as they flew away

And in their silence

my knees attach themselves to blackened soil

Taking root

holding fast

to the aloneness of their owners sins


 

They hold onto what prints of life they can find

As flesh surrounding them gives into the stillness

to the meat that is torn away

to the bone upon bone of brittle gazes

that burn into a soul not meant to ex...

A Love Story

A fortress

A wall crumbling

Breached

Penetrated

Its strength to protect is faltering as

brick by ancient brick

becomes dust removed and forgotten


Is that the goal?

I breathe him


drenched and raw

like heartbeats skipping upon the breeze

as the feathered dragonfly

wandering through untouched souls of the lake


He bends toward me

one line short of happiness

For five years and ten, my mind leached sadness. Spiraling out forgotten memories.

Painting aneurysms of rainbowed happiness. I begged you to not bid us farewell...

to not condemn this life to the vortex of whispering trees...to erase the filth that

demons collected upon your blistering grins.

I am of fingers and pencils

creating smoke rings to drown out hopes

Living off of neglected graves and stolen lilies

found only in clipped curls and the lost secrets

Can You Feel the Desire?

Because the Way I Want You is Never Quiet

i dreamt

lonely as a tree

never wanting to dance again

surviving on faded ink sparks

that grew crucifix bound

in pallid rainbows of grey

My Winter's Paradise

I remember the first moment that I realized I loved you

It was when the earth around me stood still while the

cold within crumbled to snowflakes in a plethora of stars


 

I remember the first time I was quenched by your life

It was when old prayers were no longer the aching breath
