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……
*I DEDICATE THIS POEM TO JOHN FOR
THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS POEM, THANK
Tiny jewels falling, reflecting the arousal
of the sky, damp, grey taking its fill….
The moon smiles, lips open in a snarl,
wanting only to be whole, not dissected
Hands clasped, lovers stroll, feed
the night thoughts of the other….
Mouths touch, taste, breathing into
the other, tongues tangle, dangle on
I’ve waited so long for this moment,
you and I mingling in shadowy dims,
eyes alight, only to gaze into souls….
I want your musings red, on me glowing
All grown up from catching lightning
bugs polishing my innocence….
Whispers trailing my spinal
wings, ready to fly, lift, become
a star, twinkle from afar….
Hands of Heaven shuffle,
gloss my flirty flickers….
I move, tracing constellations,
sipping dipper, connecting
the dots of destiny, lost spirits….
Tonight I dine with twins, lick the
rings of Saturn, oh, how I turn HIM
Leo growls, only the way I taught
my kindred gender bender….
Somewhere out there you wonder
in your own corner, and I wait to be born
again only to you…….
I imagine you beautiful as you
sleep, as I sleep, dream, sublime,
in another time, delicate webs of
Silencing the land in a raspy voice to lay
Listen as Santa’s twinkle teases us with holiday.
Rosy nature plays in the heavenly tears, like
a blessing of rebirth.
Petals so soft touch my tongue, entering like
a lover, melting against my warmth.
Paling the sky with silvery Christmas
draping down in tinsel.
Stilled, blanket covers in solemn prayers….
Come, dance with me…
Cast your melody, follow me
Orange, red, and yellow,
glowing in silent awakening.
The moon draws your colors upon
the sky, fairies coloring the heavens.
Alone you sit, no stars to listen.
Crisp laughter mocks your pondering,
yet you see the future.
Come, waken the night, your silver
putting children to sleep, lovers to gaze,
and now, my eyes upon yours, beams
playing along my silhouette, opening
your mystic hush…
