Entrails of the Exposed 

trepidatious thoughts,
eats away –
residue on the lining of my skull,

i am afraid

full of shame
peeling away
molten skin
revealing what lies within
terrified of, what?

when?

innards scald from bubbling pains
aches wave through;
telling you of my darkest days
exposed and blamed
fear sieges my veins –

why?

do i rip my flesh wide open;
for all to see?
silence soaks my banging ears
does anyone, at least one –

know?

of these things,
sink into rocking flames
cowering; isolated dreams
quaking a voice for ALL to hear –

no one there?

echoes pounding within this bod
grief creeps and crawls,
swaying back and forth,
eyes melting, reflection – mirror

is my nakedness in vain?

ask the skeleton staring back at me;
hopeful flicker encouraging –
if only for one,
who?
for On
shouts from pages,
reveal the longing to know…

Riled Metamorphosis

"Roil" Artist Joy Garnett

“Roil” Artist Joy Garnett

Riled Metamorphosis 

emergence of yellow rose among,
glimmers of darkness faltering into a fade,
echoes passed through this place -
to there, remembrance casting a shade,
unforgotten gray-filled ears,
vibrations zinged ripples through veins,
love, and its beauty remained -
long into the quakes of mourning and grief,
casting amber-kissed lips into spirals latching onto stars,
cintrine embraces soaked well into bellies of angst,
blasting cracked shells; those flavescent lovelies,
golden hearts burst through blackened soot,
gaining promises of hope,
swallowing honey, coating old wounds tenderly,
gently, laughter bulged; splattering golden droplets,
they stroked frowns into smiling suns,
riling bittersweet rebirth

Morrissey, Me, Cicadas Make Three

CICADA-LN-blog480-v2

Morrissey, Me, Cicadas Make Three

blue plastic lawn chair,
wobbly, flimsy, a cradle of niceness,
when all the world is crumbling behind me,
this fancy chair of mine holds me close,
sun glazes my face in kisses,
tender breezes whisk across my flesh,
the leaves are falling — too soon, I say
while the cicadas sing their deafening song,
blazing my ears in constant echoes — vibrating clicks,
lovely and maddening at the same time!

aww, I do cherish them,
the multitudes of males flexing their tymbals for the ladies,
or maybe the ladies are flapping their wings?
either way, I have my chair,
shaky plastic thing that does the trick,
a soothing place to soak up the last warmth before the fall

Morrissey muffling the pounds of mating calls,
crickets leap across my feet,
I find lost memories arise through the tunes,
and I remember that I loved once before,
recalling, I flapped my wings; for a moment or two,
it was an endearing thought,
as I fell, something awoke,
for a second, I wished to be a young me,
with a cigarette, on the balcony,
that other time it was Morrissey, Me, and the cicadas made three

 

(The Best Of Morrissey – Morrissey, playful me.) ;-)

contentment

SOPHIA FLEETWOOD, RAIVEUSE

contentment

all; then, lost -
found a likes of puzzlement,
squished, smashed, into place,
very fitting.

some place between noon and the stars,
a collide of sorts,
the collapse of everything
and nothing.

gathered, collected,
decades fade into seconds,
cleansed in pain of beauty,
captured joys in angst.

Albatross(Anxious Swells) 

what have I forgotten?
soaring sails, and rippling entrails,
seep across my closed eyes,
in the stillness of my laughter,
I coaxed a pain of unimaginable things

set to wander upon thoughts;
that hold my heart captive
race into happy dances;
of my neurological musings –
my mind…

wondering into playing fields,
they trample hidden attacks
formed within this brain –
pleasurably,unpleasurable
sneaking phantom whispers;
of past aches[raging future pangs]

quandaries playing karmic-type worlds,
digging(dug) similar dreams –
unspoken, utterly exposed,
standing still,
same exact place –
what have I forgotten?

familiarity

Artist Tomasz Alen Kopera

Artist Tomasz Alen Kopera

familiarity

i spoke of you as home,
home, a house of pain,
all i knew of love,
an abode familiar in every way,
silent, distant, cold,
origins of affections -
a dwelling full of dread;

tears of angst,
leaving its legacy,
a trail into your soul,
i said you were my home,
i bound my heart within your bones,
clasped inside your chest,
suffering for a safe haven,
my residency secure,

the only house i’d known,
tucked away in agony,
believing i wasn’t alone -
if two could beat in unison,
i awakened in a den,
quieted, a single rhythm,
vacancy pounded upon the walls,
you were never my home,
familiarity is deceptive

Healing Waters

Artist Samantha Keely Smith

Artist Samantha Keely Smith

Healing Waters 

i dither into

one breath that strokes through waving

waters, unlocked gasp –

treading frozen tides

feet hovering between life,

and escape; vanish

to an unknown state –

gathered whirlpools, spiraling

down unknown paths,

diluted ties shrivel –

unloving ropes loosed; awaken

rushing floods — cleansed heart

flowing anew

Silently Drowning

Silently Drowning 

if I lose my words,

realize the frailty of me;

will you stand right there?

~

when I lose my words,

accepting this fragile mold,

with boldness and fears;

~

can I look to you?

collapsing in protective

arms, still holding me;

~

after I have lost

all of my words; then, will you

hear my eyes speak tales?

~

And! as I quiet,

my soul’s chaos, stirring through

maddening silence -

~

my retinas pull

into spherical cloaked paths,

are you still with me?

~

I drown my eyes up -

to the light I hope; is you

dig my strings, hear me?

~

my drowning words sink

But! my eyes spread pages, and

they chatter volumes

~

(quietly then, gone

under the grasp of fearsome

thoughts, you will let go)

They bounce and flicker, breathe in and out.

~

Wind can’t slow them from prancing their light.

~

Unstoppable forces with gust of flame.

~

Shimmering softly to and fro.

~

Glimmering, gleaming radiant light.

~

Blueish streams weave throughout.

~

Orange bursting, swiveled twine.

~

Growing flames that cavort their frolic.

~

Lifting to heights unknown.

~

Connected through strings of golden flare.

~

Windingly, quiverly, tremblingly, wave.

~

Bending, curving, flowing swerve–Unison!

~

Burning together two of a blaze.

~

Twisted, entwining, luminant kindling.
