Give me your skin
as sheer as a cobweb,
let me open it up
and listen in and scoop out the dark.

~ Anne Sexton

i blow kisses to you
whether you catch them or not.
they float in dreamy wandering.
magic breath.
smiles in the making.

that moment... when your breath ceases but who you are still manages to combine and change everything.

A poet has to fall in love to write.
Her bed is heaped with papers, or with men.

tired days make me weak.
my heart longs to rest in you,
but i hide myself.

thunder and wind
pace me through my house.
my heart speeds with them
and holds tight to anxious thoughts.
the trees creak.
the lights blink.
peace is far from the night
but i am here.

there, they burst forth,
the audacious words.
words that alter the universe.
the stars travel
in breathtaking newness
across a sky forever rearranged.
here, it slowly spills,
the wordless moment.
its own impact
a soft and luscious joy.
words rest in peace
in a fully satisfied heart.

i closed my mouth
and spoke to you
in a hundred
silent ways.

27 Apr 2014 16:09

i live in a sea
of breaths and glances,
wanting such
i watch your words
and hope for truth
as the moans in my throat
show you the way
to my sinful soul.

seeing your face is like
returning home to sunlight.
your mouth comes near
breathing you into me.
we fit in one another's hands.
the skin sliding through
joyful welcome.
so much perfect...
until i wake
and the fantasy drifts
into the ether.

the storm is here
striking over and over.
gale force winds
push me weeping to the floor.
but there...
past the edge of pain...
i know i love you.

i offend you
as i block the camera
to avoid the theft of my soul.
does refusal to allow the image
mean i do not exist?
that i breathe air
but hold each molecule
like that slender space
right at the event horizon?
that i have successfully hidden
at the point of no return?
when i refuse to allow
you to capture my true self
do i fade into non-existence
by my own choice
or do you hear me begging
from my hidden heart,
"come find me"?

will i ever be enough?
will you risk some small moment
to truly choose me?
hidden thoughts
remain so
as i dream of never days.
what will happen
if i speak them,
reveal me,
let them go?
this is my risk,

i do not know
if this aching moan
comes from the storm
or me.
reality is hard to place
in a world where love skips
a welcome home
and finds its own conveniences.

bare feet walk a knife edge
from a million tiny slices.
a question echoes
over the distance
and the faint answer comes
softly from my empty heart.
"because i want you."

today i wear my easter sweetness.
if you could just see...
i am all naughtiness underneath.

rain dripped from leaves
to the roof of my house.
i heard crickets
singing the end of stormy gusts.
you filled my lungs
with your breath
and my thoughts with your voice.
no more gale force fear
because of you.

“Wherever they might be they always remember that the past was a lie, that memory has no return, that every spring gone by could never be recovered, and that the wildest and most tenacious love was an ephemeral truth in the end.”
--Gabriel Garcia Marquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude

i stand in silence
and watch the wounded things.
where is the soul magic?
does healing come?
or oblivion only?
sing the answer.
my tears obscure your words.

a yellow moon drips like honey
through moody clouds.
my warm sigh
accompanies stars
tossed into the ink-washed sky
by caressing fingers.
the words in me
have become a sacred sadness.
i wish we could be real
just for the life
of this sparkling trail...

the last love letter joins the wind
dressed in shades of sunrise.
scattered dreams
vandalize the hours
with colors of smoke
and painted prayers
wherever they rest.

let me worship your feet.

15 Apr 2014 09:39

what i want cannot be taken.
it must be offered freely...
although not always gently.
it is in the wildness
of heaving moments
that truth is told,
bonds are made,
love is held forever.
