    Paper Views

    reach into the sheaf of paper stored inside my chest
    pull
    fold crease bend sharpen
    smooth
    love art
    keep it safe and warm
    in your hands
    home of my
    origami heart

    My Heart is Broken

    spent all my money on penny candies and pony rides
    rocket ships soaring into skies
    moon beams scintillating across my mind
    my baby is so sick I fear he is dying
    let me take the fever from his brow
    I will swallow the pain away let me be a lighthouse beacon
    searching for a healer
    don't say goodbye

    Read You Write

    thought the day would be wintergreen sharp and taste like your last goodbye
    clean and gravity challenging

    the leaves grew soft under the bewildered sun and lilacs began to overthink hibernation and bloom

    and your poetry showed me new light and old darkness
    barbed thorns on roses
    prickly pear kisses
    home

    Awkward

    tongue tied
    to the hammer of my heart
    beating thumping dumbing me up but maybe
    that's just me
    I'm afraid to cut loose in case
    the awkward might stay
    It's been so long
    I might not know how to speak another language out loud
    I better start wth a b c d

    Just This Small Thing

    . . . and your grin
    when I see you
    Is everything I need

    I wish it was a movie so I could hit replay

    Crash

    Everytime
    I think I believe
    I get the feeling
    The jokes on me
    IDK WTF IWWM
    I'm a deer in the headlights
    Trapped in the gleam
    Hoping for warmth but never trust it's there
    Waiting in the middle of the road
    For the truth
    Either way
    A crash that will strip me bare

    Sea Ghost

    A laugh in the sea of sadness
    ghosts that swim in schools
    surface
    intrigued
    circle closer for a taste
    caught in the undertow
    give in to the current
    and vanish

    Hurry Back

    I can't write any more poetries they are lost
    shattered on the silence of passing November
    laying strewn in pieces about my feet
    I put your name on my lips with silent kiss good morning the day already burning stars into shivering clouds of tangerine and the birds sing song like wind chimes playing spring instead of winter and thinking of you and the hot summer gaze of your eyes sunrise in the night moonlit caress of those silken beams missing you in this empty space beside me
    good morning good morning
    hurry back please

    Let Me

    I'll take care of you
    Make soup
    Ice your lips
    Rub your knotted back
    Kiss the nape your neck
    Float my fingertips
    'cross your restless night
    Sit against your side
    Read the newspapers
    Watch you darling boy
    All the while you sleep
