You’re my star, you know who you are…..
Sprinkled candid dishes, lips licked,
dust returns as you did…..
Under gold, you were a old soul….
Now wise, in disguise, you settle
in magical illusions….
Now I see, you were the key that
set me free……
*IMAGE WAS TAKEN BY MY DAUGHTER IN A
AREA CLOSE TO MY HOME*
Night mocks in pretty dark blooms, as i
wake in a dream, something in my throat,
as i choke, gargling in water, would you
Sometimes, if i am a good girl, i will
fly, wanting to get high on shadows
I sip and slumber in daydream wonder…
If we hold hands with big grins, we could
color nocturnal, but, only for a little while
until we got bored, and skip to another
scene to bleed….
I want to drink sunsets endlessly,
sinfully, telling bedtime stories….
You…i…roused, what would you show
me when everyone sleeps?
In fields of dusk and dew i run….
come find me….
YOU, INSIDE MY HEAD, I WANT TO BED….
YOU, THE ONE I CREATED, LAID AT MY FEET,
CURSED MY OWN FATE…..
YOU DANCED ON MY PETALS,
FINGERTIPS CREATING JEWELS, AND
I SPARKLE, SPARKLE ONLY FOR YOU….
MY HEAD HELD BACK, WAITING UNTIL
THE STARS WINK, THEN MAYBE, JUST MAYBE
MY WISH WILL COME TRUE….
HUSH-HUSH, MY LITTLE SECRET, AND
MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, THE MOCKING BIRD
WILL SING, SING, ONLY FOR YOU….
NIGHT IS WHEN I SEE YOU, AND YOU SEE
YOU UPON A ménage à trois BETWEEN
EARTH AND SKY, SOMETHING I COULD NEVER
ME, SINGING IN SILVER STREAMS OF SOMETHING
THAT WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE…
LIKE A FAIRY TALE, ALL IS SAID AND DONE,
A HAPPY EVER AFTER, BUT WE ALL KNOW
THAT IS A MYTH…..
ECHOS WERE NEVER ENOUGH TO KEEP
THE HEAVENS CLOSE, SO A GHOST YOU
REMAIN, WONDERING AMONG SLEEPING
POPPIES AND FLYING MONKEYS, WHERE
EVIL ISN’T REALLY REAL, AND I JUST WANTED TO
TWO SIDES OF THE COIN…..FIELDS OF GOLD I WONDER THROUGH
DURING THE DAY…AT NIGHT DARKNESS ENVELOPES, HORNS PROTRUDE
DEMANDING I RIDE…..
TRUMPET BLEW AS I SAT IN BAPTISMAL, AS YOU WAITED FOR
ME TO PICK YOU UP, WEAR YOU, AND SO I DID….
NOW, WHAT DO I DO, WHO DO I CHOSE…FATE OR DESTINY……?
YOU STAND SO TALL, MY CRIMINAL OUTLINE…..
THEN THERE IS YOU, WATCHER OF MY SOUL, , BETWEEN
DIVINE AND SUBLIME….
TEARS WELL, SWELL, SAVE MY SOUL……
I fight to stay light in flight….
To reach the stars arouse their tips,
yet tease the shadows that ingest….
I could stand aglow and cast a thousands
silhouettes, you being one….
I sip the cosmos as spidery webs drap
from one wish to the other……
I watch as angels and dragons play
I become a voyeur as Pleiades
savors the Big Dipper on her tongue….
I blush, shimmering…..
I dine on celestial, on divine
The sun and moon kiss,
shattering god and the devil,
and for a time they taste the
other, and then I am created……
