I have been lost to the sweetness of summer, I swear I'll come back for you in the fall.

Wednesday, May 2, 2012


I loved you once

Really, I did.

A sweet candied apple kind of love
a legs wide open, love
a love that knew each
and every one of my secrets.

Do you remember the night that I wrote testaments across your body?

Paint brush in hand

You a moonlit canvas, pale as washed wool.

I dreamt mad Van Gogh blue skies,
wrapped up with you

Together we were dripping swirls of moonlight 
as we layed tangled together
our clothes strewn across dimpled sheets
our bodies smothering the floor

We tossed about
 drunk on that cool summer breeze that blew in
just in time
as I held you still with a kiss.

Word Experiment # 11 A Ribbon Around Your Finger





Remember to Float


They asked me why I do not fly,
I told them it’s not that I don’t know how too,
I just need to be closer to the earth right now.



They asked me why I do not close my eyes
I told them it’s because I see so much better when they are open



They asked me how I move so quickly 



I tell them that I am pure electricity




I am plugged into each person that passes me on the street



I hear your thoughts way be for you do



A loud clatter of endless chatter



A bundle of extension cords twisting together



At night I reach over and unplug every cord
I turn you all off 
cause none of you are turning me on



All my connections are being shut down



They ask me why I do not sleep
I guess I’ve just never known how
But tonight, even with the moon calling to me
I am cutting these cords
One by one I am handing them back



Sometimes I float,
For, I have always know how to fly
But what I like best is floating
Just like being in water weightless
The water takes you and you are blameless



The first time I had my cords cut
I floated up
So quickly
I was unrooted 
Laughing
No way to get down
Who would want to?



I had never been this free
Not one single cord 
Tied up or anchoring me

Word Experiment # 10 Spirit Animal




SPIRIT ANIMAL

In many religions and systems, a spirit animal or guide is said to be a representation of your skills and traits that you are supposed to learn or already have. It can also be a representation of who you are or what you want to be. It can also be your protector and in many cases a person may have more than one spirit animal. Who are yours?




Snakes

I can feel all of you writhing together
Pooling your heat
You are hot wires running through me
Electric as you cover
Your thin bodies wrapping themselves tightly
racing like wind to a wildfire
You are covering me in flame

Dangerous animals are fleeing these woods
as you turn figure eights
creating paths of orange and red
trails of yellow to black to ash

Heat escapes me as my temperature is rising

All my rusty pieces are melting down
Cauterizing forgotten wounds
Words I never had the courage to say
You are showing me how to shed my illusions
My limitation are falling to the wind like the cherry blossoms 

You are whispering to me
I hear you in a hiss

A kiss

A wave

A caress

Letting me know that now is time to let go
Time to open up both hands
for there is nothing left worth holding on to
except for myself

Theses walls I have built are melting
and I have outgrown this skin

I am shedding fear like all the years of lost lovers
that have forever slipped from these hand sewn covers

I am dancing past bodily sensations
No longer mortal,
for I have tasted death,
birth and again death

So I am bridging the gap between this world and that

I can not go back
I am forever changed

I can see through you
Your heart beating
A ruby gem the size of a fist


My hand no longer needs to be a fist

My mind is open
I am invisible
Invincible
I am close to the ground
Linked to the underworld
I hear every footstep
Every sound
I am the guardian of sacred spaces
the keeper of hidden knowledge
I take shape, I have many forms
I am the messenger
Elusive and uncontainable

Patiently, I will wait.

For we have much work to do
and you must be ready.


(I have 2 spirit animals a group of snakes and a polar bear that kinda hangs out in the background, he will get his own poem a little later, this was hard, again i feel like there maybe 2 poems in one. I really do need to learn how to edit.)

Word Experiment # 9 Forlorn




Bring me someone new fast




No wait,



Bring me someone who is fast



and maybe together we can fall 



through these sleepless nights



like stars that burn out,



we will slip awkward, as we dip



fluttering like ash



we will darken the summer sky



filling it with heavy grays and whites





We will become a flash of tumbling embers,



just built to spill 



Ready to turn the desert to glass



Only to shatter it as we hit





I swear, we could,



if you’d just take the chance



and bring me someone new





Fast





I am on free fall



I’m broken winged and burning out





Couldn’t you just bring me some one quick?





So I can be someone else for a while





If only for a bit





So I can examine there lips



closely with mine



make sure that they are the perfect fit





Together we will stop time



and smash this paper weight world



with our laughter and forever 21 kisses





It will take the cake



Be the bees knees



and I will fall asleep



floating in the softness



of nocturnal spontaneity
