Impact

kissing rain – {scarred mouth}
center of a tornado,
catastrophically
penetrated reminders
of the first time our lips; touched

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

MindRetrofit7

here_you_are_by_djajakarta-d390j98-550x550

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)

Dance Partners

MindRetrofit7


Dance Partners

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.

You And I

MindRetrofit7

You And I

And I

share my breath,
within the breeze
have you forgotten me?
travels far and near
we are so close
I taste your eyes –
upon my tongue
you are the color,
my color sun
drench me

And you

speak nothing
leave me in silence
consumed in cold swirls
leaping into heated black bodies
surrounded by magnetic beauty
such tricky
radiance burns
eats my flesh
Sun (you) swallow me
away

And I

dream of rays
capturing my body once again
caressing my form
bringing to life
senses I thought were not real
flamed my innards
the touch of fingertips
soft lips
strong arms

And you

am I a thought in your world
a vision at all
a flash gone by
a flicker in your wind
a distant memory –
once again
do you still touch me
with your thoughts
have I awakened your senses
singeing you,
into…

Brume

MindRetrofit7

Lovers by E. Thor Carlson

Brume

brumous apparition
dwindling across my faze
quizzical lover of no consequence
interrupt me in mist
silken me in nightly pass
enter upon my dream phase
lock into vapors twist
quintessential musings
roar in foggy haze
never to consummate
my long lost lover’s gaze

Winter’s Solace

35396-1280x720

Winter’s Solace

the winding roads of Summer’s paths lead down wavery collapse,
long do eyes search for comfort from the blares of Summer’s peering sparks,
a shivering warmth, a covering from Winter’s breath would sooth the stretched out days,
if only, a frosty swell would cool the chills and burns of Summer’s flare,
the skies glare too long, night takes its time to peek through,
blackness dims to calm, the promise of silence — Winter’s steadiness brings ease,
but alas, Summer’s raging buzz from critters to the singing winds,
and full moon’s vibrations swarm, pulls, they squirm,
wiggles of echoes blaze their sounds,Winter’s a season far off in the distance,
a taste of ice tickles the tongue, memories of Winter’s solace

~~~

Inspired by my friend Lori who shared this post the other day Summer Onset Depression.

Art of Remnants

Deliberation by Mario Sanchez Nevado

Deliberation by Mario Sanchez Nevado

Art of  Remnants

art? poetic rhythm, blues, jazz,
predictable yearning, longing, lust
Muse?contemptible lost lover,
a sea of flee,
lonely teardrop on a concrete slab,
waiting for a moment of reprieve,
breathing through a sculptured heart;
lyrical dance?
barefoot serenade cracking upon a fire walk,
missing the joys of pain,
novella?
freedom once held in the clasp of fingerprints,
lips that still glide in the night; vaporous kisses,
ever so often, contemplating the few moments in time —
an instant when love felt real,
though nothing more than envisaged affections

Eyes Hold Universes

blue_eyes_space_universe_girl_desktop_1024x768_free-wallpaper-2184

Eyes Hold Universes

stained eyes with crimson glow,
longing journey, left unknown,
midnight passing – vapored, obscure
lingering time tucked between a Star,
and Universes unseen, I speak;
you spoke, we dwell in now,
focused on the past,
lost in tomorrow –
our days drift through pangs,
ripples invisibly leading our way,
bouncing, pinging, vibrations flare,
explosions of suns vanished –
recreated on the canvas of our make-believe Sky,
we call out to Love, Life, Dreams,
while waiting for certainty and comfort,
walking as shadows, questioning existence,
we survive here, wondering of the realities,
striving for the day of fantasies,
they; those who hide in the stains of eyes,
blaring colored visuals hidden in the Soul’s of others
