Continuance

I haven’t walked on the edge of your breath for eons,
then, again it’s been a century since,
I heard your voice;
a decade, or more lost in an eternity –
drifting farther on rippling waters,
from oceans through streams,
leaving millennium imprints,
from here to infinity,
a lasting sunset that never rose,
and dangled between that sunrise
without a single lapse of time;
I haven’t lost that last breath of yours –
a tiny vapor that resides in the bottom of my left lung,
once in an era, it slips passed in a hiccup,
pricking straight into my heart’s memory

Inescapable Pleasure

I haven’t colors to speak of,
nor do I wish to see,
murals rampaging my senses -
endorphinic pleasantries

symphonic abstracts reaching,
clawing inside of me,
I snarl at their intrigue,
their musing’s unpeeling – mind ecstasy,

still life’s heaving deeply,
clamming at this heart – roots penetrating,
cupped with stoic kisses,
statue’d melodically

black-n-white enthralling,
safely shelter this sea,
coated form in silence,
waves pound colorlessly

dancing feet turn pages,
pallid eyes sing chromatically,
trickling water-colored tears,
drowning in succulent artistry

Skeletons

Skeletons

clawing, cackling, clinking sounds,
grinding down the closed off realms,
I heard the tapping, trappings, and more,
hiding within that damning door,
scratching, howling, hissing too,
afraid to look – lurking under my shoe(s)!
my clothes covered those cowering things,
that ratted and tatted and shredded my being!

I sat shaking, on the edge of my bed,
battling those things that pounded my head,
they rattled and tattled and coaxed out fear,
they blamed, accused, mutilated, and seared,
watching silently; while they lurched for my frame,
trying to grab me – those boney; trepidatious THINGS!
engulfed, consumed, filled with lies,
the tears they fell, I was unsure why,
my own salt scalded my flesh – it burned!
churning and boiling; my sin? I sat spurned.
I listened, as the voices swallowed my heartbeat -
sucked in unison , they were too much to defeat

the creaking, wrenching, quivering door,

Chromatic Silence

Chromatic Silence

tasting dreams on tips of tongues,
chisel lightly, cracking skies
wide open; prisms dance in eyes,
sounds massage delicate fragrances -
lily of the valley strokes songs
from tired lips, coated with moon bows,
kissing earth to heart,
soul to majesty -
complexity; humanity
drips of tears in morning dew,
clouds whimper in gazing winds,
droughts of mouths who never speak,
holding back rhythms of truths -
person to person,
nature to lung,
vast isolation’s wish to be sung

Pierced With Light

bright lights in a watergarden ~ Artist Nelly van Nieuwenhuijzen

bright lights in a watergarden ~ Artist Nelly van Nieuwenhuijzen

words, pierce deeply this
day; pricking at the flesh – smooth
against old scars – words
caress fiercely this day, sounds
of remembrance; wishing them
to fade; tattooed in the mind -
words can bring comfort today;
covering wounds with healing,
pierced with reflections of light

Regeneration

Regeneration

when stars speak, and they do;
fractalized weaves pierce one’s psyche,
dust lost to those long gone,
swell through silenced eyes,
sensational vibrations beat; they do,
beat into the slowest pumping of hearts,

a tinge of ripples beneath the coldest of flesh,
awaken trapped consciousness,
identities forgotten, stolen,
cast into deep wells with constant echoes,
urging, enticing, dredging up,
ecstatic particles longing to move rapidly -

alive again.

some would deduce, this to be a great pleasantry -
those who know, understand when stars get {too} close,
their song renders a cataclysmic destruction,
inducing brilliance in a form of eradication;
while soothing with a seducing lullaby,
erupting a Supernova,
particles scattered -

emerging new life.

Keeping Up Appearances

Keeping Up Appearances 

glass eyes shattering
moonlight glow upon this case
withered
a shallow stem
drained of refreshment -
I am parched

green leaves curl
soaking the sun
yet,
my flowers do bloom
image of flourishing,
listen closely-
insides cough,
quietly
silently

drowning in sand
swimming in air,
my petals -
delicate
and beautiful as they are,
flame vibrancy
though skeleton is hollow

digging roots to stand
staying stable,
strong in this dry land
keeping pretty
watching my petals fall
one by one

set in a vase -
forced to call home
a lone flower
swallowed by a bushel,
of cracks

stretching empty roots,
grasping for air,
and those who look on
still see my colorful petals,
spread wide -
to fall
in silence

deep
penetrate
deteriorate
leaking dribble,
severing straight;
into a cavern of scorn
black-and-white smiles
rage, against gray matter
neurons wrestle -
pull up lost thoughts,
retitle tall-tale exploitations
rename those nouns!
verbs, adjectives,
only crusted outer layers;
wickedness DOES NOT,
consume the vulnerable -
it only delays for a little while…

a small portion of lost;
to be found,
escaped to be reclaimed,
AND remained;
under the distress -
unsympathetic eyes,
whipping lips,
lashing,
but the season of regret,
shall never enter;
such willingness, too weak -
an unempathetic soul,
who refuses anything(other than self)
the world will all play along;
while you dance in your fabrications -
behind your back, heads shake,
and mouths smile
none fall for the bemusement
all is tucked away,
safely from the beguile -
while it tries to destroy,
the treasures of lovely hearts -
unafraid to emerge,
despite such…

Rainbow Tears

Rainbow Tears

Rippling warm liquid
Watery fluid rolls
Streaks glisten sunlight’s glare
Trickling globular shapes
Slowly, slowly spherical waterfalls
Dripping with no known cause
Eyes full of blur
Heart looking down
Lungs spew out sobs
Continual secretion
Glands begin to swell
Puddles and puddles form in mass
Splatters of color
Rainbow hues gleam
The brilliance that radiates gems
Distracting particles flushed away
Luminous energy revealed
Brightly lit paths of winding roads
Revealing they have no end
Tears they fall for illumination
Colorful new tales expound

Solidify

Woman in Words - Artist Juan Osborne

Woman in Words – Artist Juan Osborne

Solidify 

still words, left empty -

silence brewed images,

neither true, nor false

words still; left empty -

coagulating fearful vapors,

nor false, never true

fallacies crushed to dust,

words in silence,

birthing Love from trepidation,

static words; full -

overflowing in abundance,

solidifying their true meaning -

quietly, and calm
