And So It Goes

In every heart there is a room, A sanctuary safe and strong, To heal the wounds from lovers past, Until a new one comes along. When we first met, I saw your eyes, And felt a stirring from inside, And though I tried to stop my heart, To you it flew, to my surprise. I’ve [...]

Towers of Sand

I sleep and dream of towers in the sand Whose wondrous figures stand gleaming in the sun For all to marvel. I dream of men who stand And build there glories with eyes stretched to heaven, And hearts turned ever upwards towards new heights. Then many more I see, alike in kinds, Beholding gloriously the [...]

Cellphone Prayer

I tumble through this doorway in my hand Into the tangled webbing of a Mind, Into a new and devastating land Where eyes that once could see are nearly blind. I long for quiet boredom and the bland. I long for hide and seek until I find. Oh may I have the power to cut [...]

Birthday Wishes

You bow your head down to blow out the candles. Close your eyes, count to ten.   The backs of your eyelids are the color of the orange flames that waver as you pucker your lips.   You start to wish for the same thing you have every year, someone you can call yours.   [...]

Man of The Woods

I set upon the earth my sight. Curious to its horizon, eager to its peaks. I watched a sunset from far away, but it was snatched from me by the sounds of a crying man.   A man built like boulders, shoulders wide. His chest forged from steel and stone. His hands were the width [...]

Morning in Fairyland

Dew glistened on fine harp strings. Sun shone off white hair and pale skin. Music flew from fingertips. Trees sway in rhythm like a dance. Jewels sparkle like drops of moonlight. Pure notes escape ruby lips. Birds flock in the green canopy of trees, at the chime of a bell, the music stops.   All [...]

So Long

Thorny briars kiss her Ankles glazed in radiant ichor.  Nutmeg and honey, Clover and thyme, her mother’s nectar-sweet tears Puddling on the peak of Olympus tug On her tongue as the pomegranate bursts Across her lips.  A sleepy bliss Lulled by warm pine Whispers in her ear.  She tips forward Toward outstretched arms, And howling [...]
