Loves Me Not (part 1)

Unsullied and unbiased  Folly for eyes so often in the ground Meeting their earthy gaze and sparkle Plant seeds in my mind Flowering the long stems of your eyelashes Batting like you might fly away  The small mole, a black hole  Hiding right beneath your chin I could swear sometimes […]

The Last Hope

A forest fire rages from the cackling laugh of embers So hot that even aluminum shrinks into flattened bark Ashes litter the ground, soot in the air And the smell of life caught in a chaos Sickening and fading Echoes unheard through the roaring of the flames Screaming to save […]

Take Out

Can I have the moon to go? Dimly lit chamber holds the soul Empty appetite leaves one whole Gaze into the stars With less luster than her eyes Admire from afar Feel further than the sky is A smile is Sweet temperament Bitter torment Curt silence Cute demeanor A seance […]

Sushi!

One night, just turned summer Spring glimmer Flowers germinate One sight, one to another Words simmer As pupils dilate Hungry and forlorn Distant but never lost Veering off to empty spaces I often fill with you At least the image Mysterious and unfinished Smile just slightly blemished  Blush in which […]

Pouring

The ebb tide seems far with the reflection of the moon Long orange streaks and golden ribbons in the afternoon Starry tears fall with the flow lost in the majesty of the ocean  In motion emotion clenching fists so tight as if to take beholden Owing the gratitude to feel […]

Silhouette to Forget

One morning To dissipate in the light Window of my life Toss and turning In bedsheets strewn to sit upright A headache slight  Una mattina, to have sworn to seen a The curtains cascade with the breeze Dressed in a long shirt with pulled down sleeves Too big and draped […]

Sorely Mistaken

The simplicity of a heart devoted Ring already binding Tightly to the aorta  Closing a valve to ink that noted The very life of finding Disconcerted in a plethora  Small grapes that sour Make fine wine for my saddest hour  Drink until I no longer cower Ask my question to […]
